Slides not opening.

After having our motor home in to have the refrigerator fixed the slides won't open. It was there for 10 days. My husband had the generator running and there is no light by the switch. He checked the fuses and the circuit breaker and they are fine. Called back to the service center and the service writer said that if the batteries aren't charged all the way they won't open.

By " No light by the switch " do you mean the battery disconnect switch ?
Has he tested the batteries with a voltmeter to make sure they are charging ?

The slide motors do require good power to operate.

Battery voltage is very important. However, if they didn't volunteer to check it out for you, they screwed something up and they probably realize it. Good luck!

Have you tried the slides with the generator running? Or hooked to shore power?

Our slides are hydraulic and operate from the same pump...as do the jacks.

However, commands for all three things are different. Have you tested the slides with ACC, then key ON, then engine ON?

Both slides not working would suggest a fuse; maybe caused by the other work and not noticed by the technician when it happened.

Check parking brake! Make sure that it is fully engaged. Does the leveling jacks work?

On mine the storage bay doors have switches and if a door is open or the switch is bad the slides won't work.
Good luck and safe travels!

On our coach the house batteries have to above 13.2 volts with the engine running for the slides or the levellers to work. I had to do a reset on the inverter to get it to work right.

So, coach make and model? Does the panel have a volt meter for the batteries? If so, what does it read?

X2 on the bay doors. Recently had some paint work and they disconnected all the bay door switches. Once I put all the switches back together, all was right in the world.
