RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 months ago

I would be checking the battery voltage at the batteries, many sliderooms are wired directly to the battery. Make sure all the cables are clean and tight. The voltage should not be dropping below 11.5 volts when you are trying to run the slide, if the voltage is dropping off I would have the battery load tested to make sure it is in good condition. Most auto parts or RV stores can load test the battery for you to make sure it is good that is the best test that can be done to see if the battery is bad or not.

Hope this helps some, If you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me...
