Customer Question
We had to disconnect...

We had to disconnect our batteries because of a battery box issue. We are now parked at our campsite and the slide won’t come out even tho the batteries are hooked back up and we are connected to electric

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have brake lights? Have any trouble codes popped up?

It’s not a truck issue this is a travel trailer

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your RV?

2014 Keystone Premier Bullet

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Premier yourself? What have you tried so far?

Reconnected the batteries and double checked the connections. Yes my husband did the work.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

I don’t think so.

Black coming from the power white going to the chassis
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

that is correct , i would just make sure there aren't any wires missing  and no inline fuse that blew while reconnecitng it

Where is the inline fuse
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

if its a hydraulic slideout , they will be near the hydrauling pump , or they will be an inline fuse near the battery if there is one

It’s cable actuated. He is looking again.
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

I would make sure no wire isn't hooked up

He said the fuse is fine.Still nothing. Is there a way to open it manually?
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

yes there will be a way to open it manually , best place would be to look in your owners manual , i would have to know the exact style and brand of slideout to find instructions

Oh thank you for the slide out manual!I wonder how the battery could be low if we are connected to land power.
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

check the reverse polarity fuses in the fuse panel and make sure they aren't blown  and the converter is charging the battery .

they are the orange fuses in the fuse panel normally
