I have 2 questions. We did not have a manual for our trailer. How do I find out how much our fresh water tank holds?
Second, we just got home from camping, put the slide out to clean the trailer and pulled it back in. We have never had it open in the rain and wanted to make sure it would not leak. So i just went to put it out and it will not open. Only makes a clicking sound when I try to extend it.

First thing to check would be the battery to be sure it's charged.

Even if is plugged in and the battery is dead there is a good chance that the slide won't operate.

I agree with Russ.

You should check out each cell on the battery/batteries. That's about the only way to be sure where it's at.


I'm not familiar with the RV you have, but most of the cross road rigs are around the 50 gal. range. Maybe could add a little for the water heater.

2013 brochure has them at 54 gallons fresh and 40 for each grey and black. HWT at 6 gallons.
As mentioned a battery cell(s) may be toast.

Our battery is less than a year old. We just used it while we were dry camping in the desert. And it was fine.

Try to start to open slide with the manual crank, then try the switch once you have manually begun to open the slide.

dont hate me , but are you pushing the switch in the right direction? Also if all lights and water pump work while unplugged , your battery is good.

I doubled check that I was pushing it in the right direction�� I've never had an issue with it. We just got home from desert camping. Our battery worked fine while we were there. Dont think it's a battery issue. Even when we got our trailer last year. The battery was bad and the slide out opened while it was plugged in.
