Power gear living room slide won't go out.

Ok folks, I'm back again. Took the MH to the lake and living room slide would not go out. No sound...no nothing. Before we left home it came in just fine.
Friend manually put it out for me at the lake and when we were ready to come home, it came in just fine! Any ideas? Doesn't the same motor make it go in and out? Very confused!!!!

Our slides are interlocked with the ignition switch. Twice now the relay that keeps the slides from operating when the key is turned on stuck. There are 3 relays in an outside storage bay. I Suspect one is for the jacks, one is for the slides, and one is for the steps. You may have a different setup. I don't know which relay is which, but when the slide didn't work, I tapped on all 3 relays with the handle of the screwdriver and the slides worked.

You may have had the same problem. The relay decided to work when you were ready to come home.

Did the slide work (out or in) after you got home, or does it still just go in but not out?

The slide will come in but will not go out. What does the relay look like? I can't seem to find any in the compartments. Would they also be located under the hood? Thanks for your time.

Don't know what slide/model you have but you might find something to help here.
