Slideout goes out but will not retract

Hi
Slideout works great but only when I extend it,it will not retract
I can manually retract it but other wise will not retract
I checked all wiring & all connections everything OK
If slideout extends with power but will not retract is it possible motor needs to be replaced?????
Thanks

just a quick clarification question so others can help you more....

Do you hear that motor attempt to operate when you click the switch to retract?

Generally, this is a simple setup where polarity to the motor is simply reversed when you click the switch one direction or another.

My first inclination is the switch itself should be replaced. They are under $20, and I've had one go bad where it would work great in one direction, but not the other - it would either not operate, or operate glitchy.

If you don't hear the motor at all, it's probably the switch.

If you hear the motor fine, but it's not moving, then something else is up.
If you hearing clunking, clanking, banging, or some other noise that makes you cringe, then this should be addressed.

Assuming it is a rocker switch, it will have 3 terminals. The middle is the + 12volts. Top is most likely slide out and bottom slide in. Remove switch and with slide out, short the bottom and middle terminal together to see if slide comes in. If so the switch is bad. If not, you may have a bad controller board.

If it's the switch, most RV dealers will have switches in their parts department. Pull all the wires (being careful to not short them out...put some electrical or masking tape on the ends AS YOU REMOVE EACH WIRE), remembering which wire is top, middle and bottom. Then take the switch to the RV parts department and have them give you one that is the same/close to the same. There are a couple of variants...some will have 3 terminals, some will have 6 terminals (either should work, but easier for you if they are the same).
