slideout wiring

i have a 2005 national seabreeze mod# 1321. recently my slide outs stopped working. after checking out the control panel system for any problems i removed the cover on the rear of the monitor panel to see if i could find the problem. i found the wires to my slide out key lock switch were broken. the problem is i can only find one broken wire. the switch has two terminals and i cannot find the other wire . since i do not have a electrical diagram more precise than the one in the archives diagrams i'm in the dark, it does not break the circuit down to wire colors/size .etc. i can't see any place where another wire would be attached. if anyone out there can help me to solve the mystery, i'd appreciate it. thanks.jimburr

There should be 2 wires, on your model 1321 you need to open the door large panel that holds your switches and monitor panel. The panel has 2 screws that are covered with wooden plugs, remove them and remove the screws, this will give you full access to the back and all you wiring. The missing wire may be attached to one of your slide switches. Also this is how you access the water fittings on the back side of you shower.

Just a EWAG here; perhaps you located the "hot" wire, and the ground wire is routed from the motor to the RV frame nearby.

Just went out and looked at my slide switch. The keyed switch has 2 wires, one from a connector for power and the other is a short jumper that connects to both slide switches center connection. The jumper wire is a 3way Y type connection.

slide out wiring

thanks, Richard, you hit the nail on the head. i found the power connector replaced the missing jumper and the slide outs work just fine. i had some thermostat work done at the end of last season and i hav'ent used my slides since then. i would have never found it. thanks again. jimburr
