Default Slide Out Issues

Hey yíall,

I have a 97 Sunsport that has been sitting for quite a while. No batteries or alternator are in the vehicle and I recently had it towed to a local RV Park. Anyway, when I hooked up power, everything worked except for the slide out. I think the motor is locked because it doesnít make a sound. Iím sure thereís a way to manually let the slide out back out, Iím just wondering where itís at?

Hey there,
There are some high amp breakers for the slideouts, maybe they are tripped.
Here's a link to a thread with pictures of them;

Iím not a mechanically sound person when it comes to motorhomes lol. The pictures posted seem very different from mine.

There HAS to be a way to manually let the slide out, doesnít there? I mean ... there has to be.

Some slide outs are hydraulic others are electric.
I have 3, big ones hydraulic, small one electric.
Check to see which one you are working on.
My hydraulic ones quit working when the breakers mentioned above needed resetting. They are above the RV house battery in my 2003 Indy.

many slide systems may only work on 12v power, from the House batteries, even if you are plugged into park power. Your converter, if on, should change the 120v park power to 12v power to your fuse panel, and to your slide system, but not having a battery connected may prevent that... or a high-amp Fuse BREAKER has tripped.
