Rear bedroom slide out won't slide

I have a 1999 Fleetwood Pace Arrow Vision 36B.

I was on a trip recently and the slide out for the bedroom worked find while getting ready to go.

The road we took for this trip was a typical Oregon 2 lane asphalt road and we got to our destination in about 2 hours.

When we got ready to get set up in the paved camp site the slide would not extend.

I checked the fuses in the fuse bank below the refrigerator and tested them all. All were good.

I opened up the bed and accessed the motor unit visibly and I could not smell any burnt electrical motor smells or other visibly noticible problems.

I found a booklet in the Fleetwood owners packet and nothing in the discussions on the bedroom slide were helpful.

I checked the continuity in the switch and it was good. I found NO power to the wires. Hmm. There has to be a fuse some place, Right?

I got down on the floor with a flashlight just to the left of the power panel near the bottom of the refrigerator and started moving wires and blowing dust off of things. When I lifted a group of wrapped wires I found a small 2"X3" circuit board and at the very back of it was a glass round automotive style fuse. I pulled the fuse and it was blown. There was nothing written anywhere that a fuse was back in that compartment. I did notice that there was a printed "SloBlo fuse" on the circuit board. This fuse was not a SloBlo but a 20 amp standard blade fuse.

Not having a fuse of this type on board as all the other fuses in this motorhome are Blade fuses, I used the aluminum foil trick to create a temporary fix to get the slide out so my wife would get to our clothes.

I then went and bought a similar fuse as no one in the town I was in had a SloBlo 20 amp. In the mean time I ordered two SloBlos and now we carry a spare.

I have written on the power panel door interior where the fuse is so if any future owners, or pray tell I forget at my advanced age, won't have to go through that 2 hours of stress.
