Dining Slideout Won't Come Out

Question: I have a 29' thor tahoe 5th wheel. Do I need both 110 and 12 volt for the slide to come out? With 110 I can hear it running but slide doesn't move. Do I need to charge or replace battery for slide to come out?



Robbie: You do not need to be plugged in to 110V to move the slide, but you need a fully charged battery to move it and the terminal connections must be clean. Slide-outs are heavy and draw a lot of voltage (12V). If the batteries have been sitting dead for a long time(over a few weeks) then replace them. If they're just low be sure the terminals are clean and they have water in them and charge it for a few days.

It takes 72 hrs to charge a deep cycle battery.

Good Luck,
Robbie
