Driver's door power window

Adventurer 2002 drivers window does not work. At first it was intermittent - then complerely inoperable. I have spoken to Winnebago at least twice to find a circuit diagram and fuse/circuit breaker without success. They also have no diagram to disassemble the driver's door (inside) panel to check out switch & motor.
Does anyone have experience and advice on how to procede? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

2002 was the first year for the power window. The 2001 model had a manual crank window. But, as you note, I don't see the power window wiring on the automotive wiring diagram. The 2003 diagrams do show one however. Good chance the 2003 diagram will work for you. (My 2004 diagrams are different though, different style switch. If for some reason the 2003 doesn't look quite right, might try the 2004.)

The door itself was supplied by Atwood. you'll find other folks trying to find the power window motor here at irv2.com if you search. Atwood has been sold/taken over/whatever quite a few times since then. It's pretty hard to get solid information now. Hopefully yours is just a fuse or a bad switch.

An example:

tderonne,
Thanks for the info. I have managed to remove the unit from the window and have disconnected the motor from the drive/regulator. Motor runs smoothly with no load, but I cannot reconnect the motor to the drive (should have checked them both before separating).
Also don't know whether the cable is binding.
If you have other ideas I would love to hear them!!!
Thanks,

Did you find this thread?

Might have to poke around in a bit, but he disassembled and reassembled his regulator.

Thanks again.
I have not taken the drive cable off - so far I can't get the motor drive shaft back into the regulator gear box. Thought I better be able to do that before I tackle a bigger job.

Thanks to all who responded to my request for info on 2002 Adventurer driver"s side power window!!!
I ended up taking the whole window drive out of the window - never found the cb/fuse for the circuit. Replaced the entire unit, since I could not pinpoint the problem. The motor operated fine with no load, but the gear case which drives the worm gear seemed to have some resistance. The worm gear/cable appeared to be ok but no way to determine whether where it was binding.
The new unit came from Winnebago Industries with no instructions. It must be a generic unit since I had to make several mods to install in my rig. I was concerned about limit stops, but it works like s charm - all buttoned up and ready to roll.
Thanks again to all.
