Slide out stuck

2015 fleet wood discovery 40g.

We are on the road and fleetwood and powegear are closed. Iíll call tomorrow.

Stopped for the day. Leveling jacks deployed, full wall slide deployed then kitchen/drivers slide bumped out about 2 inches. I paused to look out window and then slide wonít respond to the button presses. Bummer slide stuck.

I checked fuses on the control panel in the basement) (4 40amp fuses ) they all look ok.

Engine was running (per manual) and voltage looks fine. There is no sound when hitting the control button for retract or extend.

Is there a relay somewhere or another fuse?

Thank you for any help you can give!

Did you try killing the engine and then try extending the slide? I know you said the manual said to run the engine when extending the slide, but it might reset the circuit if you stop the engine then try it again.

Could you tell if it just quit or if something held it back and made it stop?

I found the slide controller for the kitchen slide.

FYI for others looking it is in the basement storage on drivers side rear. It is with the inverter. It was mounted to the ceiling. I checked the fuse which was fine. Then followed the troubleshooting procedures provided by Powegear helpline. The gentleman on the phone was very helpful.

Plugged controller back in and all is functioning again for now.

Thank you for your help. Hope this helps others.

I had problems with my slide controller board also. Cold solder joints... pressed the cable connector onto the board to make contact to retract the slide. When I got home I resoldered the cold joints and purchased a spare control board just in case
