Interesting. I finally figured out that my galley slideout will not work unless the ignition key is turned on. The owners manual says this is true for the leveling jacks, so I finally decided to try this with the slideout, and it worked. The bedroom slide, however, does not require the ignition key to be on. I haven't yet tried the slideout with the engine running (the jacks won't work that way) or the transmission not in park or neutral (again the jacks require park or neutral) or with the parking brake off (again the jacks) but this makes me wonder if the slideout and jacks are somehow on the same circuit??? Sure would be nice if the owners manual would tell me some of this.
