Slide Problem - Hydraulic

We just got back from our Disney trip with our new RV and all our slides will not come out. A little looking revealed that there is a blown 15A fuse at the hydraulic pump. I replaced that fuse twice and it seems to blow as soon as we try to move a slide out. I have tried two different slides after replacing the fuse. One note is that at our last stay at a rest stop, we brought the slides in on a slightly low battery. We were running the heat that night and I forgot to turn on the generator. Obviously we are still under warranty, but I would like to try fixing it myself if it is simple. It would be a good learning experience.

Our manuals are in a drawer that is currently blocked by our slide-out. What is the method for manually moving a hydraulic slide in and out?

What kind of system, Hwh or powergear? Be sure your batteries are fully charged and run the engine when using slide. Check for obstructions, good ground at hydraulic pump, read the manual before doing anything.
If still no success as said before call the Mfg. They are both very helpful.

Sounds like low voltage and I would also suggest you check the fuses for the charging section of converter or charger for the battery bank. Also check connections to ground and hot leg of feed circuit.
