I am currently on a trip and using 50A shore power.
My front slide operates fine. The rear slide just clicks. At first i thought the slide motor was bad but, during trouble shooting it found the following.
Voltage at both inverters was 13-14 volts.
The generator would not turn over.
Using the transfer switch made no difference.
When i start the coach engine. Let it run for just a few minutes and shut it down, all returns to normal.
After I let things sit awhile the slide clicks again and generator doesnt turn over.
Start engine, shut down and all is good again
All 110v is fine.
Do you have a house style fridge powered by an inverter? Just curious.
13.4 is normal for a charging inverter or alternator. Both the generator not starting and the slide not working sound like a low battery or some other reason the items are not getting correct power like a loose battery connection.
Starting the engine for a few minutes seems to point to a low battery except for the other slide still working fine which puts that theory in question.
If you wait until it happens again and take a pocket knife (a cheap one) and dig it into the connection between the terminal and the lug on the cable or just wiggle the connections to see if it changes anything or it is loose. Once the inverter charges it will shut off and monitor the batteries. Just to make myself clear you do mean inverter and not converter?
Please post results and maybe we can get to the answer.
Good Luck, Q
