Okay, okay, I know. It is a stupid question. I live in this thing so I should know where it is. I have a 2001 Newmar Gas Engine Workhorse Chassis Dutch Star, model 3666 with two slides. I found the control for the rear slide in the rear most closet on the drivers side on the wall, just above the access cover for the fresh water tank and pump. I cannot find the control for the front slide.

I am having a problem with the front slide. When it gets to the end of travel, either in or out, it stops but the motor keeps running. It would seem to indicate that something had come disconnected but I have no trouble moving it in or out so I do not think that is the problem. The service tech I have consulted says that it is an adjustment on the control box. I see the adjustment he wants to try on the control for the rear slide but I cannot for the life of me find the control for the front slide. Can you help me? I would appreciate anyone having that same floor plan who knows where it is. Thank you for all responses.

They are on many, both in the same location. Look in the cupboards midship and in the bedroom. My '02 3 slide DSDP had all three below the bedroom located sink. When you do find it, back the pot off (left turn) very little while the slide is running at fully extended. With very little turning it should stop running. Now test it. Mine in the '02 did it on the main (largest) slide. Once adjusted it worked great there after.
