I would clearly focus on the ground wire connections. Take a very good set of jumper cables and hook your positive ends between your trailer and your running suburban battery. Hook your negative cable lead from your negative on the Suburban to the frame on your trailer. Make sure it's rust and paint free. That should give you a new ground cable for testing purposes.

Just to clarify, hook the one side on the Excursion to both to the battery terminals, and just positive battery post on camper and Negative to clean frame?

I just got off phone with Jayco Engineer and he wants me to take down my under carriage and cut the wires on the motor to bypass wiring and connect a battery to the wires to get the slide in. He is suggesting the dealership run a new wire to the slide motor, but the only covers the 1 slide....

Got the g*d da*m slide in and headed to dealer tomorrow. There was an opening I could take lose on the bottom, I unhooked the motor and hit it with jumper cables off the battery...

Thanks to all. I sure hope this ends my woes with this new rig.

Dealer called, and said they pulled the under belly off and found a broken ground bolt.

All those troubles, a broken ground bolt.

If you want to help preserve your investment in batteries I might recommend you installing a Battery Failsafe Devices 12 Volt LCD Low Battery Alarm. It's a bit on the pricey side ($64) for what it does, but it I've had it installed only two weeks now and it has saved me twice.

You can set the voltage level you want. Mine is set to 12.20 volts.

Here is the link:
