Slide Quit

Howdy from a new guy! We recently bought a 2003 Fleetwood prowler 5th wheel and the slide quit working right after we got it home. Of course we bought it as is so here we are. I manually extended the slide and nothing seems to be binding, there is 12 volts at the switch as well as leaving the switch each way. When the switch is pushed it sounds like a relay shifting in the extend direction but no voltage to the motor. If 12 volts is supplied to the motor it will move the slide both directions. Does anyone know where these relays would be located? Also, are there limit switches involved in this circuit? While we are at it, does anyone have a schematic for this unit or know of a source? Any help ya'll can give me would be greatly appreciated

I've had batteries that measured 12 volts, but didn't have the power for heavy loads. Might consider plugging into your truck electrical with the engine running, and try the slide again.

The batteries are new yellow tops and I've tried it with a battery charger on the batteries.

So you are saying you have checked voltage at the motor when pushing the switch?

Yes, I think I've found the problem, there is a small pic board with two relays there is power in, power when the switch is pushed but nothing coming out. Hopefully that's not just a symptom.
