Thanks! I will look at it when I get to my "big phone"!(my laptop!)
Did you replace your motor? If so, where did you buy it? Am sure they are not cheap!

I got the info from the Power Gear site, while helping a friend with a broken drive gear on his fifth wheel slide. I hope it helps , at least if you have a P/N , you can shop around for pricing.
What problem are you having ?
Have you done all the electrical test to rule out switches and relays as the problem?

Will be trying the electrical tests when I go out there again.
It has been sluggish to open and close. Last time I forgot there was a bucket next to the slide out (where we store the rv) and it jammed the slide out and now it won't go in or out.

If you find the motor is bad, you may want to consider taking it to a repair shop that does DC motors. Its usually much cheaper to have it rewound than to buy new. Also depending on the motor they can sometime alter the windings to give more torque. JMO
