Continued.
We could not get our slides in due to empty coach batteries. Running the engine did not help. We had to connect up our Honda 2000 back up generator.

I have the 2006 5291 and it might be in the same place as mine. Your not going to believe this one.......

It's under the kitchen sink. Take the right side panel out first, then remove the back panel. BINGO

No, that is not the same thing as the power converter. I have that same relay under my bathroom sink also. The power converter is located under the left bowl of the kitchen sink.
You have to remove the "J-trap" and then rip out the back wall panel in this cupboard. It is plugged into the back of the breaker panel with an AC cord and plug. It's just laying on top of the jumble of wires that go to the back of the breaker panel. It has an Aluminum housing about 14"X12"X3" Auto fuses in the back. One of these failed in mine and that is why I had no DC power to drive the slide out motors.

That could be a replacement convertor. The way you describe it as laying on top of some wiring sounds like a retrofit. I have replaced mine twice. Make sure there's nothing blocking the cooling fan or it will die prematurely.
You can move it to the battery compartment. I have mine so outside air can be pulled in by the cooling fan.

No, it's the original as I am the original owner. I should have at least been mounted either on a shelf or on the wall. I am concerned about the fan as it was not running, but I was'nt sure if it was on a thermostat and only ran when the converter got hot.

It only runs when it's warm and trips the heat sensor.

Thanks! That's good to know. It appears to be working ok.
My next problem is that while out camping last time the dining room slide motor gearbox exploded while running out the slide. It's a Power Gear PN 524664. Anyone out there know of a salvage outlet that might have one of these motors. I've bought one before at Ickies RV Salvage in Montpelier, IN, but they don't have anymore. They are quite pricey straight from the factory.
