2 slide out circuit board location

Bedroom slide is not opening and have been looking for the slide out curcuit board that has the relays for the slide out. Was told it was under the fridge or under the sink. No go on each of these locations. Any ideas where I can find this circuit board? It is a 1999 Dolphin 5371. I know the power distribution board is in the hold under the front passenger seat but I am unable to locate the circuit board for the slides. All ideas are apreciated.

The control box , location on this coach and my last 5er , made no sense at all ; so if you looking for any logic involved in their placement you won't find it.
Current coach control box under the sink, wall mounted, on the opposite side of the coach from the slide, last 5er, on the floor under the bottom drawer( removal required ) beside the converter/charger, again opposite side of the RV from the slide. Close to power was the only thing that made sense there.
If it's like mine , this is what your looking for.

I had similar slide issues on my 2000 Sea View.

My slide control electronics are located in the front basement compartment (below passenger seat). They are small printed circuit boards, about 2" x 3" in size and are mounted to the left of the BCC board. Sorry for the bad photo, but you can see about half of one of the boards in the bottom left corner of this shot.

When I had slide retract/extend problems, I checked the connections of the faulty slide relay by pulling it out and re-seating it. I also swapped the relay from the working slide to the non-working slide to check if the relay had failed. In my case, I think I had corrosion on the relay terminals that scraped off when I re-seated things.

Good luck!

regards,
Karl

Karlos,
Thank you for the information. When I saw those boards labeled Power Gear, I thought they may be for the lifting jacks, in my frustration with the situation, never thought they were for the slides. Crimped the connection a bit and reset the relay and the slide works again. What an easy fix. You have no idea how much I appreciate you taking time to post on this issue. Another example of how IRV2 works. All my best and safe travels.
