I see its your first post so....welcome, there is a great group of people here that can help with all of your future questions!!!!


DS---- Door Side (of coach) not drivers side

ODS-- Opposite of Door side


I think the word "opposite" is wrong ..... but you get the idea


I learned that on this site in another thread several months back... the more you read on here the more you will learn.

Good luck!

Assuming that they are named on the switch, why bother? Could be that the good folks at the factory want you on the other side of the bus when the slide deploys or retracts?

Our coach has two slides, and the operating switch is on the opposite wall, too.
It has never occurred to me because operating it from the opposite wall allows a better visual in case something or the dog are in the way.

A photo of them would be nice so we know what you're talking about.

If they're the large rocker type switches, with the words written on the cover, the rocker covers are removable, just swap them.

If they're the small solid rocker type switches and the words are written under them, just pop them out and change positions.

If they're small rocker type with the words written on the switch, remove both switches, unplug the connector on the back and swap switches. They're the same switch, just have the wrong plug connected.

Regardless of what name is on them, the location of the operating switches would still be on the opposite wall, and I think the OP's question pertains to getting them on the moving wall side.

Since it's a wiring thing, the fix is awfully difficult to achieve without a ton of work.

Thats a new one on me. DS means drivers side and PS means passenger side, at least thats what my Spyder panel tells me. Does DW mean door wife? I'm confused.

That's just ????????? Wrong

Why have a complicated "ODS"? Is that a left coast thing?

DS = Drivers Side
PS = Passenger side

Too simple?

That's not how I read it or how mine works. Both the slide switches on my coach are next to each other. There was nothing said about where the switches were, just that they were reversed.

My understanding is that "being reversed" means that the driver's side slide is activated by a switch that's on the passenger side wall, and vice versa.

Switch placement is up to the coach builder, since your coach has both switches next to each other, and mine is the same as the OP's.

Does anybody have their slide switch on the same wall as the slide?

In any event, changing out the wiring would be prohibitively expensive, and more to the point, the way my switches work is the same as the OP's so his coach isn't necessarily wired incorrectly, IMO.

Some Fleetwood coaches labeled the switches Curbside and Roadside. Folks were unable to open their slides on campsites with the road out front and no curb at the side.


Excerpt from a Fleetwood diesel coach owner manual (note the reference to ODS):

Curbside - This refers to the side of the motorhome that faces the curb when it is parked. Often called the door side or the passenger side.

Roadside - The side of the motorhome that faces the road while parked. Often called the off-door side or the driver side
