Both slide outs and jack no longer working

I have had my 32' Coachmen Royal Travel Trailer set up in my back yard for a couple of months. I decided to move it back into the pole barn Sunday and to my surprise neither of my slide outs worked. I had it plugged in for over a day at that point (over four days now) and the monitor showed a full battery charge. I checked all breakers and fuses and everything appears to be in order. I ended up hand cranking both slide outs in and then the power jack didn't work either! Any suggestions? I would not think all of these would fail at once.

I took my new TT back in after the slide wouldn't function. Dealer had someone from company come and check it. It was simple... Battery connection wasn't tight and that causes the amps to be off in the brain box for the slides. Dealer mechanic says he didn't believe it until the guy showed him. I'll find out this weekend when I pick it up.

Does the battery show charged when the trailer is disconnected from shore power?

do the lights a radio work work with shore power disconnected? if the don't check for corrosion on the wires leaving the battery you will also find a couple of 40amp terminals/breakers that may be corrode or gone. the power jack connects directly to the battery so it sound like a bad battery or bad ground. Connect the battery to the TV with jumper cables and see it the jack or sliders work.

I owe you big time, Englishman. I went out this am and found a low charge on the battery after its been plugged in since my post. Looked at the battery and there was some corrosion. Cleaned all leads with steel brush and sandpaper and viola...my jack works! Went in and tried the slide outs and viola...they work too! Thank you so much for the advice. Saved me a ton of time and money. You are the best! Happy trails!
