Slideouts Inoperative - ’04 Windsor

Am I the only one who thinks my RV electrical system is possessed?

40PBDD rear slideout won’t retract, & front slideout won’t deploy on fully-charged batteries, shoreline, or generator.

Maxi-brake engaged.
Ignition switch off
Transmission in neutral.
Chassis level.

I have located the slideout control module in the curbside aft electrical bay. 5a fuse, & 25a CB test ok. No inside breakers tripped.

Two Questions….
1. Where is the ignition/slideout interlock relay?
2. What is the correct procedure for bench-testing a 961A-1C-12D slideout relay?

TIA,

on my 2005 Beaver the interlock is a relay in the front electric bay.
Be sure to check you "baggage compartment doors" - many have an interlock so you cant move the slides if a door is open.
One of the door switches may have went bad. That's if you have those door interlocks. My Beaver does not have then as none of my doors swing upwards.

Good thought, CountryB.... Thanks, I agree... I think it's more likely to be an interlock, than a relay failure. IMO the likelihood of a relay failure on the slide controller module affecting both slides is lower.

Could be a sticky solenoid, might try bumping your salesman switch a couple of times, worked for me a couple of times, eventually I had to replace solenoid.
Good luck

Outbound, another good thought, but I shunted that relay two weeks ago because of erratic behavior.

Storage bay doors as already suggested .
I have an 03 Windsor and every time my slides have act up I go around and
slam the doors again and that has fixed it .

No telling how many people have traced wires and relays from one end to the
other only to finally find a door switch problem .
Some times the metal tab that holds the sw gets bent a little while crawling
in the bay , it doesn't take much .
If slamming the doors doesn't work then jumper across the bay door switches
one at a time and try the slides each time .
If you happen to short out to ground at the sw it will blow the 5 amp fuse on
the control board ….. Good luck

My slide control board is located in the passenger side rear electrical bay. Not sure why but about every 2-3 years it will blow the fuse on the board.

It must have been a problem as the previous owner actually had one stored there the first time it happen to me, this is what made me check it.

I now do the same thing so it's an easy fix. If the slide doesn't work and slamming all the bay doors doesn't solve the problem I check the fuse.

Just had this problem

One of the bay doors' switch was slightly tilted inward. Apparently I bumped something against it and the bracket bent sightly..

When I moved it back to the proper place. Everything worked fine.

My ignition slide lock out relay is in engine compartment drivers side, black box, top row of relays, yellow wire is for lock out if your coach is like my 02. removing wire will allow slides to operate with engine running.

Thanks all for the good suggestions. Have been preoccupied at work, but getting back at it.

Have tried rearranging relays on slide-out control board. No change. New relays ordered.

Did not find anything amiss with the door switches. Could shunt them all as a trial....?

Will search for ignition interlock in engine bay.

This is a 2-slide unit. Rear is stuck out. When I push switch to retract position I hear a click, and then nothing. If I try to put the front slide out, same click, and then nothing. There is no grinding/straining.

Click says to me the solenoid on the hyd motor is closing (getting power from Slide room button) but power not getting through to the motor (like the click of a car starter solenoid when the battery is low). I would test the power at the hyd. motor solenoid next.

Do you have 12.5+V at the solenoid battery terminal? When the slide button is pressed does the power flow through the solenoid to the motor terminal? And does the voltage remain at 12.5V (or does it drop significantly) when the button is pressed?

His slides are going to be elect except for the gen slide .

I think he should check out the bay door switches more thoroughly .

Have someone hold down the slide switch while you go outside and open up the door on the first cabinet and reach up and push the interlock button for that door. If the slide out moves, you’ve found the switch which is not making a good connection. If that doesn’t work go the next door. There should be an interlock switch only on the doors under the slide outs. Be careful that you release that interlock button as soon as the slide out moves. If the slide out catches on an open door, you will damage that door.

By the way, all the switches are daisy chained together. If you have the unlikely case where you have two bad switches this method won’t work.
