Slide out control location

Just bought a 2000 Fleetwood Jamboree GT JW

I had hoped my first post would be of us in the mountains enjoying
the new RV!!!

BUT, the slide out stopped working and I am looking for the slide out control. Tested the switch inside the RV and no 12v to the switch.
The batteries were replaced just before buying it, I had the parking brake on. Pretty good with a meter after 14 years of HVAC tech work and wiring diagrams but the control board seems to be hidden and I cannot find it.

Not sure itís the same for you, but on our last coach, 2003 Bounder, the slide control boards were found in the bedroom.
They were in a cabinet behind the 120v breakers and 12v panel.
I had to unbolt the breaker panel, pull it out and let it hang there.

There were several cold solder joints on the board. Once resoldered, all worked until we sold it, some 10 years later.

Slide out

Thank you, I will look in the bedroom closets today and see what I find.
If I find it I will post pictures and a diagram showing the location since I cannot find any answers other than your kind answer on the net.

BTW, If anyone knows a great used RV parts (or new) online store, I am starting some repairs and refurbishing of the motor home.

new awning, replacing the satellite crank etc. I will also be replacing the carpet.

Now ours is a 2010 Fleetwood, so location may be different. But in our Battery Control Center (BBC) - where the two battery disconnect relays are located - is a resettable circuit breaker for our slides. It is attached to the COACH switched-on bus bar. A small, retangular looking box with a reset button on one end. In the attached picture of our BBC, the circuit breaker for our slides is in the top left corner of the box, kind of in the shade and with three red wires running behind it. (There are two more such breakers in the bottom of the picture, but they go to something else.) I can't think of why the c.b. would have tripped, but it might be worth checking out.

Good Luck! Keep us informed.

I looked there and it’s just batteries.

Fleetwood Mfg could not tell me where the relay board is either.

I wish there was a tech manual on the RV. I will put a toner on the wires (batteries disconnected) and trace out the wiring.

Slide out control

I opened the cover on the bed frame box where the breaker panel is and there is an inverter, a plug for the inverter, a couple of relays but no Control Board for the slide out. I pick up tone on the wires running into the box so the only thing I can think of to open up the wiring loom and try to follow the wires to see which way they run.

Fleetwood was no help, I even tried Fixya and got a 35 year RV mechanic but he wasn't able to tell me where the mod was either. I called a place nearby that works on Fleetwood and they couldn't tell me either.

I cannot believe how elusive this module is. AAAAGGGGHHHHHH!!!!

On my 2003 Southwind they are behind the circuit breaker panel - my panel is in the wall cabinet next to the bedroom TV. Pull the board that the panel is mounted to and the black slide control box is there. Good luck!
