Slides won't open

We're getting ready to head out for our spring break trip, so my husband headed out to open the trailer. He has lights and the battery says full, but he can't hear the slide motors working or opening. Does anyone have any ideas about what the problem could be?

It sure would help if the folks on here knew what they were trouble shooting, nothing in your signature to tell us what kind and model and year of unit you have. That really helps folks help you.

My knee jerk reaction is to check all breakers and UGF outlets and reset as many as you can find.

From experience a UGF in the bathroom controls the same curcuit as the TV in the living room. I would have never thought that until after I reset the UGF in the kitcken 5 times with no luck. Went into the bathroom reset the UGF and 'click' the TV came on.

My guess is you have the trailer plugged in at home on just a 15 amp service and that tripped s breaker or UGF.

You said trailer, so my guess is the slides are 12 volt. Check the fuses. You could also have a low battery. Could have enough to light lights but not enough for the slide motors. Is it plugged into shore power ?

I'm sorry I didn't provide enough information. I tried setting up a signature, but I'm on my phone, and I can't see them.

Yes, the RV was plugged in to the house. My husband crawled underneath, and found a dangling wire. The ground bolt sheared off. A trip to the hardware store and 20 minutes of work got it fixed.

Thanks for the fuse suggestion. It was on our list of items to check.

Thanks for following up. Too many times folks fix their problem after much discussion and never tell us what happened.
