Does anyone have any ideas?
Do you know what circuit the clikcing breaker is controlling? If you disconnect it what happens?
The smaller wire on my rig goes directly to the tongue jack, so it seems strange that you would have the small wire going to the slide.
Is it possible that your main positve cable was making just enough contact to create the symtoms you are describing. If reminds me of having the positive wire resting on the positive terminal and trying to start your truck, it does noting but click.
I hope it is something easy to track down, 12V electrical problems are the most frustrating electrical problems to trace.
