`OK, I apologize, there may be something wrong with our MHs wiring. Ours does run off the chassis, or house batteries. Disconnected the house batteries, slides still operate. Reconnected house and disconnected the chassis battery, slides still operate, but the key must be "ON" to operate our slides.??! Trying to rundown wiring, but this may be a waste of time due to the complexity of MH wiring systems.

As soon as you turn the ignition on, the "charge" or "battery mode"solenoid closes. This solenoid bridges/connects the house and chassis batteries when the ignition is on so that the alternator charges both batteries while underway. There is nothing wrong with your wiring. To determine conclusively if the house batteries operate the slides, see if you can operate the Slides WITHOUT the ignition turned on. If they are operated by the house batteries, the slides should then operate. Otherwise, they are connected to the chassis batteries. All Winnebago slides are connected to the chassis batteries and the Owner's Manual states specifically to have the engine running when operating the slides due to the heavy drain on the batteries. Good luck,

Thanks Bob, the tie solenoid appears to be wired correctly, but actually tracing where the wires go to is a big problem, as them seem to disappear under/behind stuff.
