Confounded Slide not responding!

Just pulled my rig in front of home to pack for a short trip. Driverís side slide will not go out. Both other slides work fine. Had the coach out 2 weeks ago-all was well. Itís a 2021 Kountry Star 3709. Is there a specific fuse for the slides as I am not locating it - obviously 🙄. Switch doesnít make a sound, no click nothing-sure would appreciate someone with more knowledge to guide me to the proper fuse(s). Thanks in advance.

Something similar happened to me once. Everything was working fine at home. I removed the battery cables to clean them then reinstalled. A few days after I pulled into a camp ground late at night and my full wall slide wouldn't work. The next day after checking the fuses and controller with no success. I cycled the battery disconnect switch at the entry door and the slide worked and has worked ever sence without issue.

That was probably the easiest repair I ever made LoL!

There is a breaker for each slide in the main breaker panel. First, make sure the slide is not locked shut. -Paul

I have a 2021 Ventana, and I had a bad encoder which can cause this. I am going to assume that the FWS on the KSDP uses the same electric motor mechanism as the Ventana (caution - may be a bad assumption).

But if it does, there is a controller board where you can operate the slide manually if the motors are good. My controller was located in the driver side pass thru bay mounted against the rear bulkhead. Here is the manual for the controller that will tell you how to operate it manually.

Your controller is in the bay on the passenger side. Look and see if it shows a fault. You can unplug it and plug it back in to reset it. Then try the room.
