2005 Safari Panther slideouts not working

Started to put out the passenger side living room slide last night and it went about 1"-1 1/2" and stopped working. The driver side slide as well as the passenger side bedroom slide won't work either. The driver side bedroom slide does work. While looking for a possible blown fuse, I found out that the generator slide does not work either. By not work, I mean nothing happens when I press the buttons.
We are scheduled to leave on a trip in the morning. Would appreciate any helpful tips to remedy this problem. The MH is plugged into shore power.
The only things that I've done to the coach since our last trip was to remove a satellite receiver from a cabinet that contains the TV control box and sound system and pull the coach outside to wash it off. The buttons for the living room slides are located just to the right of that cabinet.

Do your storage bay doors open upward? If so, there will probably be interlock switches on them that prevent the slideouts from moving when a door is open. This could be an interlock switch that is bad or just needs adjustment.

Might try flipping the salesman switch on and off a few times, you may have a relay going bad.

The storage bay doors swing out except for the wet bay and electric cord and hose bay and they straight up.
Thanks for the input. I will check all the doors.

Outbound, I'm assuming the salesman switch is the battery disconnect. I turned it off and on several times with no changes.

As a last resort, I was trying to find the hydraulic pump and solenoids for the slides. Since I couldn't get the generator to move out of the way, I thought about the compartment in the steps. Sure enough, when I removed the tray under the second step, everything was exposed. The manual shows 2 fuses that I wanted to check. After moving the wires around looking for the fuses, I thought to try the switch again to see if I could hear anything from the solenoids. Whoa and behold the slide closed per normal. So for now, I'm not going to do anything until get to our destination - Elkhart, IN. If we get the slides out there and they don't come back. hopefully there will a mobile RV tech in the area.
Thank you to MSHappyCampers and Outbound for your helpful tips.

Not sure why Monaco put the hydraulic pump so it gets wet and connections corrode. Since none worked it's the connections on the starter solenoid for the pump's motor. Your BR bed slide is mechanical... other 3 are hydraulic.

Congrats on getting slides to work, sounds like a bad wire connection.
