Bedroom slide not working

Bedroom slide will not open, 2005 fleetwood Bounder 35E I have power leaving the rocker switch. But no power at the motor. All the safetyís are working because the other slide works. I think I need to find the power gear controller. I have looked everywhere with no luck. If anybody has any information, would be greatly appreciated.

Your slide switch only powers a relay. Is it an electric or hydraulic slide? If electric, it would take a mighty bid switch to handle the power to run the slide. If its hydraulic, the switch runs 2 things. The relay that runs the pump motor, and the solenoid that operates the hydraulic valve.

Since you say you have no power at the motor. I'm going to assume it is electric. Get your owners manual out, go to the wiring diagrams and figure out where the relay is. Also check the fuses. Each slide motor may have a separate one.

When trouble shooting I start with the easiest first. Check fuses. Since you don't know where the relay is yet, but do the motor, take an extra battery or get close enough to it with jumper cables, jump the motor. Motor no run? That's the problem.

Next it's time to find the relay. Check power coming in. On wire should be hot all the time or with the ignition/acc on. Power coming in, have someone push the slide switch. There may be as many as 5 wires at the relay. One hot all the time. The other 4 probably work in pairs. Out and retract..

No power to the relay, you have a wiring problem before the relay. Start tracing back.

Bedroom slide not working

Thanks for the reply, I agree 100 percent. Itís my understanding that I have two relays and two auto reset breakers on a small power gear control board> thatís the item I canít find. Power gear is the slide component manufacturer.
