08 Hurricane 34B Slides not working

I have a slide problem that I'm stumped on. All of a sudden all three slides don't work. The Hurricane uses the 7 valve equalizer system. The levelers still work, but when I depress the three slide switches nothing happens. I get voltage to all three switches but the relay in the wall doesn't engage. I followed the wires forward but I don't know where to go from here. I have contacted equalizer systems and they indicated the leveler controller has nothing to do with the slide. They also indicated if there is power at the switch to change the switch. I changed it and it didn't help. They also advised that the wiring isn't manufactured by them and recommended that I take it to a service center. Before I gave up I also changed the relay to no avail. At this point I think that my problem has something to do with the pink and black wire that connects by the pump to a yellow and another color wire. ( I can't remember the color right now.) I think it goes forward and connects to the RV Custom Product controller. All the fuses on that board test fine. I hope someone has some thoughts...I am fresh out of ideas... :(

My Thor has a slide controller under the coach in one of the storage bins. There is a plug that occasional gets bumped and unplugged by cargo shifting or me pulling out a table. Look for a black box in the bins. Then check to see all wires are attached. Another option might be a high voltage breaker A little black square with a yellow or red reset lever on it. You'll find a couple near the coach batteries and one under the hood. Try resetting them. Good luck!

Thanks but I don't think the Equalizer System Hydraulic slides have a controller. The harness form the panel to the motor all stay with in a loom until the motor and slide controller. I think you have electric slides

Just to help anyone else who has the same issue. I have the equalizer system which one pump controls the slides and levelers. The slides work with their own wire harness back to the switch panel. The red wire and circuit breaker at the motor provides power to the switches through the relay. The relay is activated by the ignition switch. My problem would up being a frayed power wire to the switch panel. I was getting intermittent 12V and sometimes reading 12V and when hitting the switch voltage would drop. The jacks and jack control panel are separate. I just figure I'd share the solution. Now I'm trying to find wiper arms and who makes them.
