Simple (maybe) slide issue

Afternoon all. 1999 Monaco Signature. Without getting into the particulars of why my slide is the way it is let's just say we had the rig at a certified truck repair that was suppose to be able to work on our rig put 9 months later that proved not to be the case. Went in because engine died and they claimed it was the generator that burned out and needed to be replaced. However the back story here is not the issue just to say that in their RR of the generator they rewired the rig so that the 12 volt system will only work when the engine is running or in the on position and that is why I picked it up when I realized I had morons working on my unit. Yes I know that it can be fixed but I need to get it to another dealer that I do trust to figure out what they screwed up. In the mean time the slide is out about 8 inches and I need to get it back in to move the reg. Right now it will not move because there is suppose to be a "interlock" switch the prevents the slide from being engaged while the engine is running. See above issue why currently I believe the slide does not work. My thinking is that I should be able to run a wire direct from the battery to the posts of the slide motor to engage it to move in or out depending on which post the power is engaged. Like most electric motors the in and out switch just reverses the polarity of the current to engage the motor in or out. Would love some insight from the group on how best to undertake this issue. BTW it is one big slide and I do not think it can be manually cranked in.

If you slide does have an electric motor there may be a chance that it has a brake on the end. There is a lever that you can move to disengage the brake. Once it is disengaged you can use a crescent wrench to turn the shaft. My motor failed and I had to do this, the slide came in fairly easy.

How many slides does your coach have?

It is common for the "large" slide rooms to be hydraulic. Sometimes the smaller slide rooms (like bedroom) are electric, but I have not seen any "large slides" that are electric.

If you have hydraulic slides there will be a pump with a valve body and solenoids to control the flow. On this style you can manually open a solenoid and physically push the slide room closed (it would take a couple of people). That is the way my Owners manual says to close a malfunctioning slide.

On the electric Slide rooms, usually there is a lock or brake mechanism in the slide motor that has to be by passed for manual retraction. There would be a manual brake release on this style.

I could not find an Owners Manual for a 1999 Signature, but the copy/paste below is from the 2001 Signature OM (so maybe of no help).

Is your large slide hydraulic pump/motor operated?
If YES then motor runs one direction and solenoid valves open to port fluid to move ram in/out


Solenoids should have 'T' handles on end to OPEN them (counterclockwise) and then slide MANUALLY pushed to retract....several folks to push it




On Edit: CountryB posted actual info while I was typing
That 'operational page' should cover your slideout

Thank you all. My fault from having to many prior class A's with electric slides it is in fact the living room slide and it is hydraulic. Found a 2000 owners manual and it looks the same as ours. I will be gathering the neighbors this weekend to help push it back in. That sure makes it a lot
easier then an electric issue. Thank you one and all.

The newer slide-out hydraulic systems don't use the "T-handle" release on the solenoids (see attachment) as shown in the earlier post.

BTW - be sure to have everyone spaced 6 feet apart while pushing the slide-out back in. (COVID-19 joke)
