I did notice these two relays near my power center that I can't identify what they do. Could this system possibly work off relays to power the motor?? I know I'm shooting in the dark but would appreciate opinions.

Do the wire colors match those on the switch ?

Again check the wire for ohms from the relay to the motor , to see if that's where they go.


Power output wire should be labeled on the relay .

You could pull a pair of wires off the circuit breaker in middle and retest slides again.

Is that a circuit breaker between the two relays?? Excuse my ignorance but I'm not an electrical person.

Coachman told me on the phone that the Controller should be in the Electrical compartment near the power distribution center. These relays are the only thing that looks different from pictures I see of distribution centers on other coaches. I'm searching in the dark here!!!:banghead::banghead:

OK found this slide out wiring diagram on 2002 Georgie boy. It does not show a separate controller anywhere??? If this is accurate I could hunt for a controller til the cows come home and not find it?!?!?!

Yes its like a self resetting fuse , but works more like an old school turn signal flasher . It heats up with too much current ,bimetal part bends to open a contact. Cools it closes and resets. I have many in my elct. bay. Cars have smaller versions for things like electric seats and windows.

My slide controller location
 
I had my slide controller fail a couple of years ago. My mechanic found it located under a clothes closet that is across from the bathroom in the hall that runs between the bedroom and kitchen.

It was actually at floor level behind a drawer that is located below the clothes closet. The battery charger is near to it and this was behind my 110 volt and 12 volt systems fuse panels.

The mechanic had to remove the drawer completely to see the controller.

Hope this helps.

I have removed all drawers and searched every nook and cranny inside and outside. No signs of a controller!!

We just got back from another camping trip and the slides worked flawless. The only change I have made was replaced the 5 pin wall rocker switch.
I am beginning to think that based on the schematic I posted above that it is a direct feed to motor and there is no controller?!?!?:eek:
