RE: PowerGear slides... A 5-Flash followed by a 1 or 2-Flash is usually caused by low batteries, so the first thing you should do is make sure your batteries are healthy and fully charged. Our 2011 coach requires the engine to be idling while the slides are being operated - the owners manual specifically says not to operate the slides on battery power alone. Yours may be different. It sounds like you've already pushed the little "Reset" button on the circiut board - id f so, do this...
1. Turn the chassis battery disconnect switch off for at least 30 seconds, then back on
2. Start the RV's engine
3.Try deploying the slide again.
Well they must make units different for a lot of vehicles.
On my MH, I have to dump the air (at least some) before I can extend the jacks to get it level -
which is what it's supposed to be, before the slides are extended.
When the engine is started the air bags fill up and raise the vehicle back up, which is likely to take it out of level.
So I always (so far) lower the jacks to level the coach and then extend or retract the slides, only with the
key in the Accessories position and the engine off.
I assume the 2011 Winnies work differently and the air bags don't automatically fill when the engine is started.
Is there a switch to raise the coach and that is why you can run the engine for power while the slides go in or out?
