All three slides stopped working

Need some help, I have a 2013 Dutchman Denali 324LBS Fifth wheel, I have been out a lot this spring and had no problems with the slides. Today I went out to do some tinkering and I had full power to the fiver, but got no response from the 3 slider switches on the wall. I checked the battery compartment and the Leppert control panel for loose wires. I found nothing out of the usual. I looked in the on board fuse box and again all is well. The other indicators on the switch panel light up and the panel operates everything other than the slides. Has anybody got any ideas or helpful hints, I did make a warranty repair appointment for mid July, but if I can find the problem before the appointment, I would be a Happy Camper, Thanks

The slides have a seperate fuse, you will probably have to check that fuse with a meter. That is about the only common item between all 3 slides as they have seperate switches and motors! The blade fuses that they use can be blown, yet difficult to see the open in it. That was usually my issue when the ones in my Colorado 30-RL-BS. Best of luck in finding the issue.

I ended up bringing the fifth wheel in to a dealer for the warranty repair. While I waited the tech found that it was the Lippert control panel for the slides that had a short in it. They are replacing the part as soon as it arrives. The tech temporarily fixed the problem by banging on the panel. (Why didn't I think of that) Thank you for your suggestions and I am happy the repair will be finished this week before we go away early August. Happy summer everyone.
