Electrical Issues

I've been having issues with my slideouts in our 27.5 RLTS 5th wheel.
It started about a month ago when I opened camper for a trip to Disney this month. I first noticed the power awning didn't work. The slides opened, then next I had problem with the largest one. I thought maybe the battery since trailer is over 5 years old. I replaced it with identical Delco, no changes. Opposite slide has no issues so thought maybe one bad one. I then checked small one in bedroom and left it open. A couple days later I was going to pull trailer ffom.behind fence to driveway. The one slide closed no problem, now bedroom wouldn't close.
I'm.perplexed. Has anyone had issues with the Progressive Dynamics converter.

Be sure your batteries are full - and be on shore power

Could be a grounding issue. Check the frame ground, should be traceable from the battery.

Do you have a remote control for the slide etc?
Might be the control board.

I'll check but so strange how it's not affecting all the motorized units.

I do have remote but pull battery out when not in use. Still thinking somewhere in converter panel.

Pull shore power then check every connection in main box both 110 & 12v for tightness. Make sure frame ground lug is bare metal to bare metal.
