DS/ODS Slide

2015 Entegra Aspire 39e. We just purchased this unit last weekend from a dealer. When doing the delivery inspection the full wall slide on the drivers side quit working. The Tech worked for 2 hours trying to fix it. They eventually got it working again by "resyncing the 3 slide motors for this slide.

This full wall slide on the drivers side is controlled by the ODS Slide switch on the panel above the passenger seat and the ODS Slide switch on the included remote. This has always confused me because I assumed that "DS" meant "Drivers Side" and "ODS" meant "Opposite Drivers Side" but that does not match what slides the controls operate.

I think my controls are reversed somehow and that the ODS Slide switch should control the full wall slide on the drivers side. If I am correct I am not sure where the wiring would be reversed since the remote functions need to correspond with the switches. Any suggestions?

DS is door side
ODS is off door side
It is confusing
We are going to use a label maker when we get a chance
Good luck and welcome

I didn't like the labeling on mine either. Took my label maker and changed it. Even the DW understood it. Easy fix.

I am shaking my head

bevandtomH, I searched the manual and couldn't find the answer. Thank you so much for answering this for me. I have never heard of such until now.

brobox, I did that very thing today with my label maker. It was still bugging me though so I had to run it by the guru's!

Thanks y'all

I think we all have been thru that confusion. Just FYI regarding the reason behind what seems like a crazy labeling scheme is the switch maker sells to both the motorized and non motorized market. A fifth wheel or other towable doesn't have a "driver side", whereas "door side" is common to both. It is unfortunate that "door side" and "driver side" share the same abbreviation furthering the confusion. I think the nomenclature may have been normalized to driver side on the newest Entegra model years.

It has, partially - at least on the Aspire. My switches are now labeled DS and PS. But the remote hasn't changed.

For whatever it is worth, on my 2012 Aspire the “DS” rocker extends and retracts the driver’s side slide and the “ODS” rocker works the passenger side. I have always assumed that “ODS” stood for “Opposite Driver’s Side”

Good thing I didn’t need to reference the Entegra schematic as it refers to Door Side and Off Door Side which is flip flopped for me!

Thanks for the schematic! I filed it in my folder of knowledge. I bought a used coach and it did come with the Entegra pouch full of information but it contained no information on the slide mechanism and and control.

Entegra has an entire section on their website with a lot of info on your coach. Head over to Entegracoach.com, go to the “Experience Entegra Coach” tab, then select “Owner’s Center”, at this point you need to register your coach by owner’s name and VIN and you can get to the “Owner’s Center Menu” where one of the options is “Manuals”. Quite a bit of info there!

You are correct. I am registered and have downloaded all the pdf's. I have looked through them several times and I don't remember any information related to the slides, wiring diagrams, control modules etc. I think the documents show the control buttons and described basic operation, but I'm looking for more detail.

Correction. There is information regarding the remote control for the slides and the control module for it but I am interested in the module for the slide motors and how they are wired.

I feel like I should clarify the correction above. Our 2015 Aspire 39e has a seperate motor control module for the 3 motors that operate our full wall slide. I have been unable to find information regarding this seperate module and the motor synchronizing tool.
