I appreciate all the responses. I am going to print them all out and the next time my friend who is way more mechanically inclined than I am (I am 0% - he is 10,000%) is here we will start going thru this thing fuse by fuse. When we first moved the RV the air was working properly, Now with going on 6 weeks of high 90's and low 100's with no end in sight for at least another week....the air in the RV has stopped working also.

The house air went out last week and we cannot get the house temps below 85 - day or night. So finally a 5 ton A/C will be installed tomorrow. Once we can get back to a stable environment here and rebuild the savings account a bit, we will tackle the RV issues. I will surely let you know what we find out.

Thanks so much for all your help and ideas.

1. There should be a switch by hyd pump (our '06 CC was located by left compartment door next to landing leg) that you can use to extend slides w/o going inside of coach.

2. Find where main cable from battery attaches to a row or bank of breakers. Using a 12v tester, check to make sure you have power from battery on at least 1 side. Where you see a buss bar connecting 2 breakers together, that's more than likely the breaker(s) for your slides. Had to replace ours due to intermittent operation of slides. Perhaps might not be a bad idea to replace all of them w/ new ones anyways.

3. Not sure about your A/C, so follow advice from others.

4. Like AP said, you can extend the slides w/a drill via a connector/extension on side of coach to hyd pump.

5. All the breakers (at least on our '06) where located in same area as #1 under a small plastic cover. Cannot miss them as there should be a bunch of wires there. If not, will be in front compartment, left side.

Let us know how you make out.

There are breakers in the front near the pump. They are auto reset and do go bad, I just replaced one that would trip after moving a few inches and stop, restart, stop, restart. It had 2 40 amp breakers tied together (80amps) and I was advised by tech support to increase the size, it's now 2 50amp.
