Bounder Slides and Levelers not working


I have a 2010 Fleetwood Bounder Classic 35s. I had it parked at my house with the slides in and the leveling jacks down for 3 days.

There is no power to the controls for the leveling jacks (power gear), and neither the jacks nor the slides will work. I am going through the proper procedure to use them....engine on, emergency brake pressed. I made sure the battery disconnect switches are switched on.

The chassis battery and house batteries are fully charged, test out fine, and were new in April.

I flipped every breaker and checked every fuse I could find in the fuse panel and battery control center.

If I press and hold the auxiliary start switch while operating the slide and/or jacks, they power up and work perfect on the house batteries.

I have tried this with generator power; shore power; and no power with the same results.

Any suggestions on where to start looking? My electrical ability doesn't go much beyond checking voltage and continuity.

Thanks for your anticipated help. I'll check back after work today.

Are all your other 12 volt circuits working normally other than the jacks and slides?

The only outlet that doesn't have power is the ground fault near the kitchen sink. I don't remember if that's a new problem or not.

is your inverter/charger connected to your GFCI line?
reset the GFCI, usually located on the outlet in the bathroom, which usually has several items associated with it, not just the bathroom.

Thanks so much. The ground fault in the bathroom was tripped. I reset it and everything works.

Thanks again.

That's awesome isn't it?

You've searched everywhere, read everything, checked everything and ran out of ideas. So you post the problem and someone says, "have you checked the GFI". I love it. The people on this site are awesome. I read this site at least an hour a day relaxing in my living room and learn so much.
