Just another case for lithium batteries. You most likely stepped down your batteries to where they are virtually useless. Partial charging is very damaging to lead acid batteries. It takes hours to tevover completely recover from relatively small discharges and about 24 hours of charging to recover from a 50% discharge, the maximum recommended. Also, the cheap LED battery monitor panel that is standard equipment on many RVs is also inadequate to tell you the true state of your batteries. You can choose to have issues like tjhis every so often snd replace your coach batteries every 2 years or bite the bullet and get a real battery monitor and lithium batteries, which do not suffer from partial charges and can be dischargef to 20% SOC instead of 50% without harm and last 2 to 5 times longer than lead acid batteries. Eventually people will learn and finally get off the lead-acid merry-go-round.

I don't know what model RV you have, but in my old 2003 and my current RV, there is a battery boost button on the dash that will tie the chassis to the coach batteries. Usually used to help start the engine, but will work both ways to help with slides.

Hey Fritos - Hope you have not been stuck in that parking lot for over a week now. Please let us know what the problem turned out to be.

For many its the tripping of the 50 amp reset between the house batteries and the inverter/charger and the rest of the house wiring while for others it can simply be that someone accidentally kicked the master disconnect switch that cuts off power from the batteries to the house circuits. On some coaches this black paddle switch is near the floor in the step well.

In your owners manual there should be a section on how to manually bring the slides in and if any tools are required Winnebago usually includes them with the coach along with all the manuals.
