Slides and Jacks won't retract

Plugged into shore power, replaced battery and AC/DC Converter. checked the fuses I could find but there is still no power to the Jack control or Slide control. Where do I look next?

"Salesman switch" by door ON?

If yes, start checking your safety inter-locks (things like in neutral, parking brake on, etc.).

If you have a Lippert system there is an inline fuse close to the pump sometimes hard to see.

After re-reading your post sounds like yours are electric. If so disregard.

Iíd look for a fuse/breaker close to your battery.
I don't have to have all the money in the world - just enough not to worry about it.

First make sure you have all the wiring properly connected to the battery.
Many times because some manufacturers use , black wire for positive and white wire for ground things get messed up.
Were the slides and levelers an issue before you started , replacing battery and converter?

Follow the power + wire from the battery post , somewhere in the first 3' of the
wire you should find a fuse or circuit breaker , because of the high draw of the levelers and slide mechanism these items are not usually fused on the main board.
My last 5er, the 12v circuit breakers ( one for the main fuse board and a second for the level legs ) were mounted just through the battery compartment wall away from fumes that would cause corrosion. They were VERY hard to see.

I had the circuit breakers for my 2011 SunnyBrook Bristol Bay that were hidden in the storage area behind a little door on the side. To resent the breaker I had to hit a tiny black button. I used a thin dial rod to do this easier.

My auto level would always trip one of these breakers.

Inside the battery compartment should be a row of red covered mini breakers. Some are auto resetting some not. You will need to feel the red boots to find the little reset button. Check each of these to make sure none are tripped.
Also being that old they may need to be replaced, an auto part store is the cheapest route not a RV dealer.

Look for something looks like this, there are several in the front compartment on the battery side. These circuit breakers can be auto like explained above or manual reset with the button. They do go bad, my 5W was about 3 years old when the 1st one went bad. They come in sized for the load so get a like replacement. I carry a spare 40amp as that is the one went bad twice.

Slides and Jacks won't retract (reply)

Found the circuit breaker. Reset switch had no effect so I jumpered the breaker. Still no joy. I know there is power there because my wrench touched the frame and sparked. I can't find any other breakers/fuses/switches so the issue must be with the pump motor itself. The holes don't line up to use a drill as an auxiliary drive so I will have to cut a bigger hole to make that happen. Such fun. I can't get it to a service center until I can get it on the truck hitch. Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

Hello Ron,

If you have a pump I'm assuming your slide and jacks are hydraulic ? At the pump location there will be a couple of relays. I would check to see if you have power there to pull the contactors in. I would also see if there is main power at the relays for when the contactor does pull in. Can you tell us what system and year you have ? I have prints for HWH 610 series leveling systems.
