Thanks again all. We got it after connecting a little jumper wire across the solenoid. Guess it had stuck in one position. When we connected the wire , there was a little click and all slides worked great. On my 2004 itasca horizon A, it was located under and behind the steps. Oh, and the rv tech came out and this time did not even try to charge me. Still a little expensive lesson, but i learned something, so all is good. Thanks to all who responded....randy
Thank all for the great responses. Very helpfull. Great forum with people really willing to take their time to help. . I have a place to start. Ill be fine . Im alone with no hurry. Its so nice here at mckinney falls that i might stay a few more days . Maybe crank them in by hand. Good exercise. Randy
Hi all, im stuck in a tx state park and my slides wont come in. I had a mobile rv tech come out to look and $160 later he said i needed to charge the batteries. I went and bought a charger and now the batteries show fully charged, but slides wont even click. We did get one slide to come in yesterday with the rv tech when i hooked jumper cables to the batteries. Im in a 2004 itasca horizon 40. I cant find any fuses, which seems like the next step. Then someone said dont rely on what the voltemiter says and that maybe the voltage drops to almost nothing when i push the button to bring in the slides. Whats funny is yesterday when the batteries were low , i at least heard a click when i pushed the button. Any ideas from you more experienced rv'ers
Hacienda is nice , but expensive. Another option is mckinney falls state park, just on the south side of austin. Very convienient to town and beautiful. Dont know if you can stay there for two months, but at least two weeks at a time .
I onow how you feel. I am planning backpacking trip now as well as a truck camping trip up and down the baja surf fishing. I have two rvs, one in mexico and one in the us. But I cant get to some of the places I want to go in a big rv.
