Loss of Battery Power

Just finishing up a 3 week trip. I had originally posted on the forum about a loss of battery power when the furnace kicked on and my interior lights would flicker. Now when I move the slide in and out with the engine running i will hear a beep and the slide stops moving. After running about 30 more seconds I will hear another beep turn the key the slide will then retract or extract so this appears to be either a loss of battery power or some kind of a short. Can someone advise me is this the house batteries or is this the engine battery or is it some kind of a relay that's failing. One battery disconnect relay that operated the generator was recently replaced no problems with the generator since. . Not real electrically inclined on these coaches. Any help is appreciated. OH and the entrance steps stopped working just prior to this problem. i have been hooked to shore power at all stops on this trip. Thank you.

The interior lights and furnace would be house for sure.
Not really sure if it's the chassis batteries for the slides. Probably so if the engine running helps.

You really need to check your batteries with a meter. You can do it. Check them when not plugged in and the engine off. Something around 12.5 Volt DC would be pretty good if it holds. While plugged in you can expect 13-15 volts DC to your house batteries if your converter and wires are good.
13.5-14.5 would be good to your chassis batteries with the engine running.
