Front Slide will not slide

Is there a fuse for each slide? Rear BR slide works fine. Front won't move. Light does not work on the switch but used to. Have not pulled the switch to check yet. Recent work since using the slide includes generator belts, tension arm and brushes, rocker arm cover gasket replacement, hazard flasher replacement. Dont see any connection there. Just checked the hydraulic fluid level for the jacks. Looked a little low but could not find the correct fluid just yet. Any ideas?? Leaving town pretty soon.

The fuse should be on your main 12v fuse panel.
My 12v fuse panel is next to the load center in bedroom yours maybe in the bathroom.
Does sound like the work done should have interfered with slide 12v's but you never can tell.
With no light indication it looks like a fuse problem or possibly a ground connection disconnected if you find the fuse OK.
Here is a slide spec and 12v wiring info.

If those are Powergear slides, yes there is a 30A fuse for each slide. On my rig, they are located at the bottom of the main circuit board in the electrical compartment. Just below the fuses are two #12 wires attached to connectors on the board. Those wires are the power wires leading to the two smaller circuit boards which control the slides.

Each of those smaller circuit boards also have a 20 amp automatically resetting circuit breaker which, I believe, shuts off power to the slide when it hits the end of its travel.

Also check to see if the wires are securely plugged into the board. Shifting cargo in the compartment can dislodge them. If your setup or brand is different, never mind.

After looking at "007's" answer, it seems yours are entirely different. Never mind - sorry for the bum dope.

Thanks for the post Doc but he has 12v motors to move his slides.

Yeah - but so does the Powergear slides on our Trop-i-cal. I see from your post that Newmar slides are proprietary, though and not mfg. by Powergear.

A while back my front slide quit working while on the road. After checking I had 12VDC to the controller, I finally removed the switch on the front panel above the passenger side. There it was the crimp connector on the top of the switch had fallen off. Squeezed the tip a little tighter and reconnected to switch. Everything worked normal from than on.

Thanks

Thanks for all the responses. As it turned out the leads were disconnected from the switch. 5 minute fix
