In northern Wisconsin and can not pull in any hydraulic slides, or my jacks. Noticed rear slide was coming in crooked when all functions went down. Have checked all breakers, and can hear a loud click at hydraulic pump when I press slide switch. Same click when I press jack raising switches.

So far the earliest I can get someone out to look at it is Saturday, so I am currently stranded at campground. Any help is much appreciated.

Check relay at the pump and connections including ground to it.

I had a 100 amp breaker trip on my hydraulic pump once. Obviously, I had no jacks or slide working. It took sometime to find it, but help from this forum got me there. Look at power cord starting at the hydraulic pump motor and trace it backwards to see if you can find the breaker if it exists on your coach. I do not know what the technical term is for the breaker but it does not look like standard breakers. Mine had short arm that rotated about 90 degrees and reset when I rotated back. It is a little smaller than a deck of cards.

When we had our Tiffin, a call to the factory for tech support always resulted in getting things resolved. They can easily tell you where to look first when you describe the problem you are having.

So was that motor breaker in the same bin as the pump, or elsewhere on the coach?

Impressive. Wonder how many manufacturers would offer help on a 10 year old coach, trailer, etc. I remember the runaround I got from Jayco on a Dexter Axle recall. Jayco and Dexter punted me back and forth repeatedly. Good job, Tiffin helping the OP.

Triple E for one still offers super service and advice on older models. They moved from the large Class A motorhomes to the Mercedes van units (Leisure Travel) in about 2010 but I still get good advice and many parts from them for my 2003. I just yesterday received a windshield trim kit from them.

So, do you know the "root cause" of the failure?
