2002 Pace Arrow Vision Slides

I have a 2002 pace arrow Vision 37. - f53 chassis -v10 . The slides just quit working.

A little history:
The emergency brake had been left on a few too many times , so I rebuilt it last week. Itís the brake thatís mounted to the rear of the transmission . The brake works great now.

Before I rebuilt the brake, the slides and the jacks worked fine, however they were intermittent. I could usually get them to work after jostling the motorhome around a little bit. Once I got the brake unit put back in, I tried the jacks, and the front jacks worked fine but the rear jacks were not working. As it turns out I need a new control box for the jacks. I guess that just happened at the same time :-) The new control box is on its way in the mail and should be here tomorrow or Friday. Hopefully that takes care of any problems that I had with the jacks.

So then I tested the slides once I semi-resolved The problem with the jacks. Neither slide operates. When I was having intermittent problems with the jacks and or the slides temporarily not working I attributed it to the Lockout switch on the emergency brake. Now, the jacks will operate but the slides will not. So for me, that illiminates the brake lockout switch. My slides work with a key switch. The switches are separate. One in the front of the motorhome and one in the back of the motorhome in the bedroom. One over the entry door. When I turn the key thereís not even a click. So iím assuming that there is a relay somewhere or a fuse that for some reason blue or a breaker. But I donít know where it is. I have breakers underneath my refrigerator and fuses underneath the refrigerator all of the fuses are good and all of the breakers are good. Iím thinking now that there has to be a relay somewhere. There is a fuse box up underneath the hood in front of the driver station that has a tab for a spade connector that says slide out. But thereís never been a wire on that connector. That connector is hot.
Again itís like a spade connector but there has never been anything attached to it. And there is no fuse or relay theyíre at least not called out there. Battery power is good on the house battery and on The truck battery. Iíve tried moving the slides with the motorhome running, with the motorhome off with the motorhome running and the generator running. With the generator running by itself. With the motorhome plugged in. And with everything turned off. And thereís not even a click when I get the switch at either slide operator.

Can anybody tell me where there might be a relay or give me some troubleshooting advice on this.

My bedroom slide worked to bring it in this pm. Then I releveled the coach and bedroom slide was just like yours. No sound no nothing. This has happened to me before over the last 20 years and almost every time I can fix it bt going outside to the compartment where the chassis batteries are and look for either circuit board that plug in or circuit bords with. Mod hack attached. Unplug the one that goes to your problem slide nd plug it back in. Do this a couple times and try your slide again. Its an old mother board trick and it has most always worked. If one slide still refuses to work, I just plug it into one of the other board to get it to move. Then have the circuit board checked at a service center when you have time to take it off.

Yes, Iím not so lucky. All I have in my battery compartment is a battery. There is one electronics box up front under the hood that controls pretty much everything. In that box, there is one tab, the type that you would attach a blade connector to, that says ďslide. That tab is hot. But there is nothing attached to it, and nothing has ever been attached to it. No other references to slides on any hardware other than the slide switches.

There is another fuse panel, automotive mini fuses, under the dash all the way to the left of the firewall. All of the fuses are good. There are two relays at the bottom of that panel. Not a single clue what that panel runs, and have never found anything on the web regarding that panel.

There are various relays screwed to the firewall both behind the dash and under the hood. Also a couple free floating in the nest of factory installed wires inside the dashboard.

I think that the idea of having an electronics compartment is a fairly new revelation.

And so tomorrow the search begins.

Thank you Fleetwood.
