I Need some help. Holiday Rambler Endeavour

I have a 1999 holiday Rambler endeavour. My sideout was working fine last time and now it's not working. It isn't getting power at the switch . The relay has power and the circuit breaker has power on the circuit board. All fuses seem fine. Does anyone know of more fuses to look for? You can't trace the wires to see where they all go. Little hard to figure out. Frustrating. Click image for larger version

Operation of the slide out is interlocked to the ignition so you can't open the slide while travelling down the road.

There is a slide out ignition relay which cuts power to the switch when the ignition is turned on. On my 1999 Diplomat there is relay marked "slide out" on the front firewall just above the generator.

I once had a similar problem and it turned out I had left the ignition key in the accessory position after turning it there to raise the jacks.

Good luck
Dave

This is a bad connection, replace this wire and the wire end, clean the spade the terminal fits onto.

That is the light that tells you the the compartment lights are on. That all works. It is black spray paint on the connector for when the coach was built.
I tested the relay and it seems to be working. Click image for larger version

If your storage bay doors open upward there will probably be an interlock switch on each one that keeps the slideouts from working with the bay door open. Even if the doors are closed one of the switches could be defective or need adjustment.

Is emergency brake on? Most have a safety switch on them, e-brake must be engaged before slide can open.

Thanks guys for replying. The brake is on also. There are no safety switches on the bay doors on this coach. Probably because of being an older coach.

The slide out is most likely controlled by the same module as the leveling system. My HR Vacationer uses an HWH system. I found the HWH control box under the hood, copied down the model number, and went to the HWH site. HWH has manuals WITH troubleshooting procedures on their web site.

Have you verified that the slide motor is working? Applying 12v directly to the motor would confirm its operation. The motor is electrically isolated so that reversing polarity on the leads reverses the direction of the slide motor.

In looking at an electrical circuit diagram for a 2000 Diplomat, it looks like the slide ignition relay is normally closed ie with no power from the ignition (key off) there should be continuity through the relay to the switch. The 15 amp circuit breaker in the interface panel appears to be before the relay. Key on should energize the relay and interrupt the circuit. If when you turn the ignition on you hear the relay energize you know that the 7.5 amp fuse is good.

I cannot see any cargo bay door or emergency brake interlocks on the diagram for that year.

It looks like ground (-) is supplied to one side of the panel switch and positive (+) to the other. The switch then reverses + & - to the wires to the motor to make it either retract or extend. and reverses it You may want to verify that there is a good connection to ground from the switch.

Thank you for the information. I bought the coach used and have no wiring diagrams or any info with it. I'll have a friend test what you said tonight. I'm not real good at trouble shooting wiring problems.

Does anyone have a picture of the side out wiring diagram for the 1999 Endeavour?

So looks like the relay test out fine. The circuit breaker has power both sides and when I hook up a battery directly to a battery the motor it works.
Also put in a new switch for side out. Still doesn't work.
Does anyone know where the two wires that go to the motor come from ? There has to be another relay or fuse some where. Ugh.
I'm going to call Monaco and see if I can get a wiring diagram this week.
Thanks for everyone's input so far.
