Slide out controller failures

Our Ď07 Newmar KSDP has had 4 controllers on the Passenger side kitchen slide fail in the last year. We are not full timers, the controller would make from three to five cycles, and then fail. Our repair facility would change it out, claim it was a bad controller, and get us off the lot.

We just got back from Nappanee and they solved the problem. It was reported that several years ago, there was a corrective action to add a second ground from the J terminal on that controller directly to the chassis. Our kitchen slide controller had a ground from the J terminal, but rather than run an additional chassis ground wire, it was spliced into the original ground wire.

The tech noticed the same controller on the opposite slide did not have a second ground of any kind, so he added one.

So, we have cycled the slides( with their two new motors....YOU BETTER TORQUE THOSE BOLTS...) several times and they are operating like new.

I canít say enough good things about the folks at Nappanee.

The C type controllers required Newmar to run a extra ground wire because of this problem and Newmar has changed out that type controller because of the extra ground wire required.
Its discussed in the Slide thread that I added this pass year The Good, Bad & Ugly.

I had two fail on mine at the same time and I was sure at that point it wasn't controllers. A call to Newmar got me the same information about the ground issue. I ran the second ground and haven't had any issues since. I wasn't happy I had the issue but I was happy that someone knew and got me the correct information to repair it.
