Have you tried sliding out with the AC power connected? Other than that I would check the connections to the motor? Does the motor make any noise when the switch is engaged?

I think 12V power to the slides comes directly from the house batteries, mine does. The positive cable goes to a circuit breaker, then on towards the slide motors. This circuit breaker should have a tiny re-set button on one side/end. Usually it is hidden by something. I had to use a flashlight and mechanics mirror to find its location.
If that is not the problem, I suggest using a 12V test probe, beginning at the battery and working along the wiring untill you find the dead spot.

I had the smae problem and I had a broken wire at the motor. I would get an ohm meter and do some searching starting at the motor.
