Got a new 10A fuse this afternoon installed and all is good now. The slide switches get their power from the fuse block down by the drivers left foot. All the jack & slide power for this coach is provided by the chassis battery and alternator. That's why instructions are to have engine running for jack & slide operation for this unit. The switches also get their power from the same source.
Thanks to all that provided ideas & comments.

We had problems with our coach and Winnebago repair man said to always have the motor running when using the slide outs . Our starting battery was bad and had it replaced. Since then we leave the coach running to level and run the slides out we have had no problems.HWH also says to have coach running two. With just the start battery he said you could have low voltage and burn up the slide motor. Live and learn some times the hard way hope this helps.

Good to know all of this. Thanks for sharing the fix. I'll store it in the back of my mind.

Before we left the campsite today I went through the Schwintek troubleshooting chart again and there is no indication of a 10A fuse for powering the switches that activate the controllers. The only fuse they list is the 30A (in my case circuit breaker) that runs the controller and slide motors.
This could be just in the way Winnebago's are wired and not the case for other coaches with Schwintek's.

You should have a black box in one of your bays that the slide controllers are in. Take the front cover off and see if you get an error code flashing on them. You can also do a manual override from there also. It is written on the controller. You push the small button about 7 times and the lights will start flashing and then use the normal slide switch. It does time out so it easier to do with two people.

Just went through something similar on my Thor Ace.
The antenna amplifier would not work. Looked everywhere for a fuse.
Finally located it under the hood in the engine compartment.
I would have thought it was part of the coach wiring. Go figure.

Just (1) additional comment... I have a 2013 Suncruiser 35P (with the full wall slide) that failed previously. When mine was repaired Lichtsinn advised that in addition to setting the parking break and leveling the coach first, you MUST leave the motor running to be certain you have full power to the system. I had my coach out this weekend for what is retract/extend series #8 since the repair and all went well. Lets hope it continues to do so!

Arkie, sorry to hear about the failed slide. I'm on my 3rd coach with Swinteks and haven't had a failure yet except for the fuse in this thread. I really feel that a big problem with the failures is with the coaches being twisted when the slides are operated. Being level and not being twisted are two different things. Your coach body with the full slide twists even easier than mine with the three slides. I have installed two electronic levels, one front and one rear and always make sure the are close before the slides are operated, either in or out. I will untwist the coach before retracting if needed.
