Malfunctioning Slide

Every now and then one of two slides fails to move. I can usually disconnect the 6-lead cable from the circuit board in the electrical bay then reconnect wiggle and the slide will respond to the toggle switch in the MH. there are two of these circuit boards in the bay, one for each slide ...Question : Is it safe to switch the cabling between the two circuit boards?? Inother words , I want use the other circuit board and its connector to move the slide..

If your unplugging the 6 lead connector than wiggle the connector you may only have loose wire in connector.
Spray some contact cleaning fluid in connector and pins of control board and see if that helps. Also look for loose battery connector and clean that also.
If both control boards are the same you can swap them and see if slide moves correctly.
If it turns out to be faulty board than double click on these pictures for your type control board for ordering.

I had the solder on one pin on the plug on the board bad. You may want to remove your board and check the plug for bad solder joints.

Thanks for the replies. Turns-out both boards had cold solder joints.. The rear board's 6 lead connector had six cold solder joints. Looked like it was done by a 2nd grader. The front board had 2 cold joints... Resoldered, now works fine.
