Clarification- 2016 Adv 38Q Slide power source

Wondering if someone could give me some clarification on the power source-- house batteries or chassis battery ----for the slide systems on the 2016 38Q.

Yes, I do always run the engine when activating the slide system as required, but unsure which, or if both, battery systems are the source?? Or is it solely relying on the power coming off the engine alternator??

(As you can see I am a real wiz on this 'lectricity stuff LOL)

Thanks

Joe

Chassis Battery powers the Slides and the leveling system. It also starts the Generator on your Adventurer (that's not always the case).

It doesn't matter if you are connected to shore power as that doesn't always charge your chassis battery. The Chassis battery needs to be in good condition and the RV engine running to operate the slides.
