Slide won't slide out please help

Hi all. 2001 fleetwood flair 31a. My dinette slide won't go out. I have key switch design. When I turn key to bring in I hear and feel motor engage, and slide looks like it snugs up. But when turn key to out I get nothing, no sound or anything. My bedroom slide works fine. And just throwing this out there, prior to this problem I was having problem with emergency brake engaging. Is there some safety thing with emergency brake like with the jacks.

I was having problems with the two slides on my Fleetwood MH. Sometimes they would not go out and sometimes they wouldn't come in; totally dead, no response to the rocker switches. I had to go down in the electrical bay and jiggle the 6-lead cable plugged into the Power-Gear control boards for the slides. Turns out the problem was not a loose cable, but cold solder joints on the under side of the cards. Removed both cards, re-soldered, reinstalled, now works fine. I did purchase a replacement card to keep on hand , just in case.

Hi all again. Finally found problem with slide. Well it wasn't sticky parking brake switch, but changed anyway for $16 part. I emailed fleetwood and they sent me a basic diagram that covered there class A and class C for that year. Diagram doesn't show where parts are but was good start. So anyway I followed wires from motor, and found relay switches tucked under fridge. Replaced 1 relay and Bam slide works. Thanks all for help.
