No propane when slide out is in

I have a 2012 CF28MKX Cruiser with 2 slides. When hitched up, the slide that's on the drivers side of the 5th wheel is where my fridge, stove, and microwave are located. If the slide is in my fridge and stove don't get propane. If I put the slide out it works fine. I'm thinking I have a line getting pinched somewhere. Does anyone else have this problem? I hate to try and remove the covering underneath and take a look out of fear of not getting the basement covering back up into place. I bought it new as a leftover and have only been living in it for a year.

You should look under the slide, mine is exposed and has no covering on it. That is most likely where the line is pinched.

Ok. We noticed it when we were traveling from San Antonio to Oklahoma. Tried to cook supper on the stove at a truck stop and couldn't get the stove to light. Then noticed the fridge wasn't running on propane like it should've been to keep our groceries cold while traveling. Ever since I bought this trailer I don't feel like that slide has ever been right. Had an electrical issue on that side of the trailer too. None of those outlets work, nor does the outlet that the fridge plugs into on the outside inside the plastic trap door. I've always had to run an extension cord into the trap door outside in order to have the fridge run on electric instead of consuming all of the propane. When we first bought it everything worked. Then after the first trip to San Antonio I noticed a cut green wire protruding at the bottom of the floor in the kitchen when I extended the slide out. I think it got pinched and the slide out extending ripped it apart and that's why the outlets don't work on that side. All the GFIs have been checked. Now the propane line getting pinched. Just makes me think that particular slide hasn't ever been normal.

My sabre had this issue. The propane line was getting pinched when the slide closed. It actually put a hole in the hose. Changed the hose and rerouted it and problem solved. Here are some pictures we took before fixing it.

I would take it in and get it looked at. Pinched electrical and pinched propane sounds like a recipe for disaster

Your slide may be out of alignment. That can wreak havoc on seals, lines etc. Ask me how I know. it sounds like you have a cut line that may or may not be live. Couple that with a possibly pinched propane line that can lead to a propane leak, like others said, this us recipes for a disaster. Get that trailer in for service yesterday.

Ok. Thanks for the replies and photos. I will get it in to get it checked out. The electric issue has been this way for the last 11 months. The propane issue just came about. Wish there was something I could do myself without having to drag it in. I've got it set up stationary right now.
