Troubleshooting Power to make slide outs work?

Just brought my BT36 Super C home from storage, we store it with power off!

Today I donít have enough power to put the slide outs out [emoji25]

Charge the house batteries. Even with the power off there is a small draw. And even disconnected entirely they will self discharge over time. I added a small solar panel to avoid this problem.

We never run the slides on battery power alone. We run our slides out with 1) the engine running or 2) genny running or 3) on shore power.

Did you try it with the generator running as MJC62 suggested?
