Slideout will not move

I have 2017 Passport 2400BHWE. I had the camper out a couple weeks ago and everything worked fine. Now the slide will not go out. I checked the batteries and they are fully charged. When I push the button there is nothing. No noise or anything. It does not appear anything in the camper is working. Is there a fuse or breaker from the batteries that could have flipped? Any ideas would be helpful.

Thanks

Henry

Welcome to the forum

Sorry it has to be under these circumstances. If nothing 12V works then you need to start at the batteries. Follow the BLACK (positive) lead, from the battery and you might find an in-line fuse or circuit breaker.

Did you take a battery out or add a battery?

What chuckster57 said, also the converter should have a main 12V fuse in it, typically a 30 amp. Did you by any chance disconnect and the reconnect the battery from the time it worked untill the time it didn't?

Henry, did you mess with anything between the working camping trip and now, if not then you're battery disconnect switch, if you even have one, is likely not the issue.

So, as Chuckster says, follow that black wire a few feet and you will probably find it connected to a box of some sort, under the weatherproofing is a fuse or breaker.

Do you know if you even have AC power say to your microwave or is all power, both AC and DC not working?

If either the main breaker or the Rec/Conv breaker is thrown you wont have any 12v for the slides. I do not know where the converter is located on your trailer, mine is in the entertainment center, I've seen other under the fridge.

Slide out not working- 2018 Keystone Bullet Colt

2018 Keystone - Bullet Colt
Floorplan: 172RBCT

Hi all!

Iím a First time RV owner. My battery is charged & RV is plugged in too. I can hear the slideout motor engage but it seems like only one side is moving & then it stops. Iíve checked for obstructions & donít see anything obvious.

Iím not sure what type of system I have or where the slideout motor & mechanisms are even located.

Has anyone had this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Are there small steel cables running horizontally on the ends of the slide (2)? If so, it is a cable slide. Is there a bar under the slide with big teeth? Maybe some serrated looking steel bars running horizontally along the sides of the slide? What have you got? They all operate a little differently. If there are cables the motor is probably going to be above the slide. Look to see if there are pulleys, cables etc. and possibly one has come off??
