I presume you are talking about slide locks? I recently had aoccasion to replace my slide cover (passenger side front). In the process, I discovered that the slide lock operates through a hole in the top of the slide when water flooded through it when it rained while the cover was off. I just covered the hole with gorilla tape and removed the tape when I replaced the cover. Yours may well be set up the same way; look for a raised lip about 4- by 6- inches centered under the cover (it was about 3/8 inches tall as I recall.
I didn't explore it so I have no idea what the configuration of the lock is.

Hope this helps,

So Lou Schneider, You are saying that I've got a bad converter & not bad battery or should I replace both?  Dan

What is your battery voltage after it sits disconnected for a half hour or so?  If you have more than one battery disconnect them from each other so you can measure their voltages individually.

Each cell contributes about 2 volts to the 12 volt total.  If your battery stays at 12 volts or more when it's disconnected all of it's cells are OK and it's not drawing current from the converter once it's fully charged.  But if the battery drops to 10 volts one cell is shorted and the battery needs to be replaced.

If you have a shorted cell, the battery will continue to draw current after it's charged and this can overheat the converter, making it cycle on and off.

So I'd test the batteries first, then look at the converter.

Re the radio, the opening appears to be almost tall enough for what is called a "double DIN". I think they also make a "one and a half".  I'd just look for radios the need an opening equal or smaller than what you have, then fashion your own plate out of wood which covers any 'leftover' gaps. Depending upon how fancy you want to get, you could stain to match
George Soros has never owned Progressive, although he did match several million dollars in contributions from former Progressive CEO Peter Lewis to a couple of liberal political action committees. Those donations ($3 and $2.5 million) were pocket change compared to Lewis' $50 million donation to the Guggenheim Museum and the hundreds of millions of dollars Lewis donated to Princeton and Case Western Reserve universities. There is no connection between George Soros and Progressive, and only a thin thread connecting him to Peter Lewis.

Thanks for the info Dutch.  At least it straightens out that partial misconception.  But that name to me would be the same as if it were named the KKK Insurance Co.  I am happy with what I have through Forest City.

They appear to be low voltage (12v dc).

Think of it this way, if Lou is right one problem has most likely lead to the other.  If the converter is bad or failing it needs replaced.  If it needs replaced it most likely is not doing it's job and that means the batteries need replaced. 

How old are the batteries?  Anything over 3-4 years I would be suspect, considering a failing converter.
Up until now we have never used our TT in the winter, but I am thinking about trying to find a really nice RV park where we could go for about a 2 month stay in the middle of the winter. While it might already be too late to make a reservation for this winter, we could hold off on this trip if need be to the following year. Ideally we want to be on or very near the ocean, with a full hook up for our camper. Hoping to get recommendations from the folks on this forum. I'm open to almost anywhere on the Gulf Coast.
