Electric Engine Bay Door will not operate

I'm getting ready to head out and wanted to check fluids. I went to open engine bay and I'm not getting anything from the open side of switch. I can hear the motors engage when I tap the closed side. Anyone with any experience with this issue. I have already performed a total reset. Thanks

To get the door open swap the wires and use the close side of the switch. Assuming it’s a bad switch.

If that doesn't work there should be pins you can pull through the slats and release the motors so you can lift it manually. Making the door electric is about the dumbest thing Entegra has done!

I agree. I thought it was nice at first but their selection of motors on the first round failed miserably.

You can always go back to a manual lift with a couple shocks from Moryde.

I agree with the electric door. Great idea but but does it really need to be electric. A simple latch and gas shocks would be enough for me. I just pulled into a coach care location for service and recall work. Iíll let them screw with it.

The motors get power from an autotive style 25 amp breaker, mounted on the rear bulkhead above the DEF tank.

We had a bad connection there. After a new switch didn't fix it, loosening, wiggling, and tightening those connections did.
