Slideout problem - switch is dead.
 
My rear slide won't extend - pushbutton has no response (no red led, no activity). Front slide (same power source) works fine - fuses checked - tweaked adjustment pot - still zip. At least it's stuck IN and not out, but wondering if anyone has ideas to try. Thanks. Peter

A good way to check switch is to splice into the 2 wires that come from the motor and hook directly up to a battery with jumpers. This is how I move in 1 of my 3 slides currently. I have another slide thYs slow and wondering if jumping it also would fix but am to lazy. I can figure out why the switch h is up front. The wires lead to the middle of couch to relays and back to switch then to slide motor. I'd stop.working if I was strung out that far also. Seems crazy. Works great jumped to aux battery.

I only suggest this because I made a panic-ed and angry call to Newmar customer service and had them suggest that I remove the key from the ignition. That was the problem. That was the first in a series of dumb mistakes I made before I got the hang of my new MH.

I had a switch go bad on me. 10 dollars at camping world. Should be able to find a direct replacement I bet

We just fried a slide controller. To get the kitchen slide in, we took the controller for the bedroom, plugged it in, ran the kitchen slide in, and returned the controller to the bedroom.

The only other time the rear slide wouldn't light up I believe there was also moisture in the compartment where the controllers reside - I had someone come look and he said it was a fuse, but I tested and swapped the fuses AND swapped the controllers with no success. I have now caulked and sealed the gaps around the exterior of the compartment against water intrusion so will see if this problem comes up again. I'm thinking a spare switch and controller would be good investments. Thanks for all of the responses - there are generally several possible causes of problems with an RV system. Peter.
