slideout, awning and jacks do not work from the panel

Hello, after coming back from a 10 hour trip on the road my slideout, jacks, and awning do not work from the switches on the panel. Everything works fine from the wireless remote. I checked all the fuses in the bunkhouse by the inverter, as well as the ones in the passthrough storage. I also checked the 2 pole fuses on the frame by the battery and all got 12.7v. I'm pretty sure there is a fuse somewhere that I am still missing but not sure where else to look. I also removed the switch panel, the fuse there is good as well. Thank you for any additional input and help.

I have a 2016 dutchmen aerolite 292dbhs

Just guessing but since the remote works I would assume the problem is wiring at or running to the panel.

Highly unlikely that it is not three switches that went bad at the same time—almost impossible but I guess a short could have taken out all three at once.

I would think maybe a ground between the switches and the battery.

Do other switches on the panel work? If so can you try swapping a wire to a good switch and seeing if it works then or if whatever worked before then doesn’t?

I have very few hard switches because I have iN·Command and it is one big touchscreen with Bluetooth.

Someone else with your set up should know better.

Good luck.

On my 2012 Komfort I had a similar problem. Where the battery feeds the wiring to distributes the 12v to those high amp units, there is a two-post connector covered in red rubber. This is a thermal fuse. It usually resets when cooled. I had one go bad and had to replace it. it controlled my landing gear, and the other one handled the slides.
