Slide relays?

Are these the slide relays on my 2001 Nat Marlin 390? They are about 1.25 " cubed. They are in the front outside driver's side compartment. Trying to solve slide not working issue.

They are relays but I cant say what they control... make sure the connection pins are all on tight. The pin in back is hardest to push on so is suspect and hard to see with out removing the hold down screw. They are Bosh relays and most auto parts will have them. Cary extras.

Do your dash fans and shades have power? Have you done the salesman switch bypass
bypass. Cycle the salesman switch while someone else holds the slide switch down. See if it moves. I did the salesman switch bypass at the seilenoid in the rear elect bay and it solved my dimming 12 v light issue but ever since, if the salesman switch by the door is turned off, my slides don't get power. WE are both 2001 Monaco builds.....

Relays are in place to handle the switching of power and ground to reverse the slide drive motor direction, so a light duty switch can be used in the RV.

Have you tested the slide drive motor , by powering it directly ?

Update

Problem solved..... If you're smart, you learn from your mistakes. If your not, then, well you know....

I was determined to figure this out before I had to manually crank the slide back in tomorrow. I looked around in the passenger side rear elec bay and found 4 relays below the BCC board. I started pulling wires around to get a better view and low and behold there was a 2 wire plug that was not connected to anything. I then saw that its mate was nearby. I plugged the 2 together and came in and tried the slide. Guess what.....

I have been having a fight with cranking my genset for a long time and had been testing around that point on the circuit board over the summer. Those wires must have become disconnected along the way. They are snap on so they should not have come apart, so I guess it's not really my fault....

Thanks for the responses. I know more about slides than I did before. Whoopee.

John
