Bedroom slide

We just arrived at our destination, it's 9 pm we are tired. Our bedroom slide won't go out. Can't find anything in our manual to fix it. No sound to it whatsoever. Any ideas?

Electric or Hydraulic?

If you have a multimeter check the wires into the switch for power. Is there a GFI that tripped in the bedroom? Are there any other areas without power?

Our bedroom slides won't move unless the tv is stored properly. Seriously! It's a safety feature.

Our slides won't operate until our RV is level and the parking brake is engaged.

Update. The next morning we read a post on this site about checking under the bed where power for slide is found. DH found a wire connection that didn't seem to be totally snapped together. We put the bed back down and the slide worked. We thought we were done. We leave Pigeon Forge this morning and arrived home 4 hours later. Went to put slide out, nothing. DH took switch plate off and there was power to the switch but he continued to dig around and move wires around. The slide began working again. It appears that something is wiggling loose on our trip. Any ideas?

Intermittent problems drive me nuts. I have a slide problem where from time to time I have to make sure my 12v lights are off.

Sounds like a loose wire, keep looking until you find it. Sounds like you are close. Good luck
Please update your Signature with your info so we can better help you next time.

Slide update. DH seems to have figured it out. All we were told about working our slides, and its's stated on the in/out switch, RV must be level and the engine must be running. DH discovered that all the times we attempted to move the slide, our house/aux batteries were not on, just the engine running. We have tried it several times since his discovery and it works every time. We have been running down the road w/o our house/aux batteries on so when we stopped at campground, he just stayed in the driver's seat and got level and we put slides out. Should we run the house/aux batteries while driving? Thanks so everyone who took the time to respond. We have learned a lot.

I never turn off my coach batteries. If I was going to store the coach and couldn't plug in to ground power I would.
I also would never level and put the slides out without first doing a complete walk around.

Run with all the batteries on the line 100% of the time.

Keep your batteries on when driving.
