Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I took a break for lunch. Are there tracks on both sides of the rooms or cables? Or are the tracks underneath?

I see cables
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 11 months ago

Two on each side? That sounds like a BAL Accuslide system. Any noise when you try to move them?

No just nothing no click
I tried to reset the breakers without success
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 11 months ago

Those are usually close to the batteries. Black button on the end with the copper post that you push in to reset. They get tripped out when the battery voltage is too low for the load. Slideout motors are really huge users of power.
