2008 Fleetwood Revolution LE 42k problems

Hi all,
We are having two issues with out new to us rig.
All three cameras quit working. The monitor seems to be working fine, we can't locate the fuses.
Secondly, our kitchen slide is stuck and will not retract. Can't seem to locate the motor or any way to manually retract it until we can get somewhere for service.
Any advice?? Please and thanks!!
Bruce and Jo

Welcome to IRV 2. Here is the manual for my 2008 Fleetwod , hopefully yours is the same and it will help.

Can't help you on the monitor but if you still need help on Monday , you can call FW 800-322-8216. They will also email you schematics on all your systems if you like.

Good luck and please update us.

Cliff

On the camera issue you might contact rvcameras and they will give you suggestions on finding the problem. They helped us when our Essex camera had problems.

I am assuming that you have power gear electric motors on the slide. If so, my bedroom slide sticks occasionally and I have to pull on the edge of the slide while operating the retract switch to unstick it. That usually reminds me to spray with silicon again. I have an 07 and the engine must be running to furnish enough juice for the slide motors.
The motors are probably underneath the coach slide. There are manual releases on the motors and supposedly you can close them with a hand wrench but when my wall slide broke I was not able to move it with the wrench method. If you find the right person at power gear they will be able to help. It took me three different people until I asked the right question and got the answer I needed.

The Revolution is now part of the American Coach line, so the correct contact for customer service is 800-435-7345 (different # than regular Fleetwood).

Thank you to everyone for their information and suggestions. The camera is now working after all fuses and wires were checked and tightened. The slide had to be manually retracted (tough job!!) and will be taken in for repair when we find a place on our journey south. Again, thank you!

Thanks for the update , Bruce.

Let us know about the slideout issue when the cause is determined.

Good luck
