Slide out won't open and keeps blowing fuses

Hello everyone, we need help please.

We have a Travel Supreme dp with two slides run by Intelitec 300 slide out controller. The one in the bedroom has decided to not extend. It has given us some problems over the last few weeks (wouldn't go out then after pushing the button a few times decided to go out) but now it won't even show power to the light. After checking everything here is what we know:

1. checked for voltage at the switch, no voltage so figured out had blown fuse at the bus block. Replaced fuse and as soon as pressed button it blew the new fuse again.

2. swapped the bedroom controller wires over to the living room slide controller to isolate if controller problem. Immediately blew new fuse.

3. put wires back and now front slide does not work and blows fuse as soon as button pushed.

4. 14v present going into controller

5. all house batteries were replaced in January with Interstate Gel batteries.

Need to figure out why fuses keep being blown and what I need to replace to get the bedroom slide out and the living room slide working again?

Any suggestions????

I would suspect an internal fault in the controller; now; but something in the bed room slide motor could have been the cause.
No manual slide operation, possible , that your aware of?
Have you done a visual inspection of the bedroom slide motor ?
I've seen the motor, in another coach, break loose from it's mounts and rip out wiring .

Unfortunately this is one of the slides that all the mechanics are under the bed that has to be lifted to inspect, the bed when in can not be opened as the furniture blocks it (horrible design) so we can't check the motor until we can get it open unless we dismantle the bed. We are looking at doing that as soon as we figure out if there is no other option.

This experiment is not for the faint of heart.
Can you set up a 12v battery and a set of jumper cables with a fused feed, and supply power and ground, directly to the slide motor wiring at the controller plug, ( with the connector off the controller ) to see if you get any movement .
If you try this and just blow a fuse, then you're stuck taking the bed apart.

I ran this scenario past my Electronic Tech/PLC programmer/robot mechanic. He says it sound like a short in the wiring. He says if you can get to the wiring harnesses that run the controller/motors use your meter and check end to end. If you get nothing... jiggle the wires. Wires do break within their sheathing.

I don't know if that will help you much but at least it's an idea to work with.

Short in the wiring. I agree. I had the same problem with mine. Turned out there was both 12v and 110v lines that run in the floor that had frayed and started to short. In mine, the wire sits in a channel in the floor. Because of the slide, it can't be fastened down, has to be able to move in and out with the slide. I had an a little access cutout under the dinette table and was able to see it from there. Between that and the access I had underneath/inside an exterior compartment, I was able to repair the wires.
