Not sure what you mean by 'main' and 'aux.' If by 'main' you mean a battery disconnect switch, the fact that it clicks doesn't always mean the contacts connect and allow power through it. Locate the relay and test that 12v is found on both of the large terminals on the switch. If not, remove the wires on one of the large terminals and connect it to the other large terminal. That will bridge the relay and bypass it for testing.

Not sure what 'aux' is, often RVs have two battery systems, one for the chassis (driving functions) and the other for all house functions.

Main and Aux are Fleetwood terminology for the Chassis and House battery systems. Yes, those are the battery disconnects for each.

I'm a bit surprised that his jacks and slide are wired through the Aux battery disconnect, though. More often they are wired direct.
