Power Gear Slide Out Controller Quit Working

The main slide out in my 2001 American Dream quit working. I've been diagnosing the problem, and think I've narrowed it down to a controller. It looks like a previous owner replaced a resistor by soldering two wires together, almost like a fusible link. That "fusible link" blew.

The controller is a Power Gear p/n 510116, and the missing resistor is R6 on the PC board. If I can find out what resistor value it is supposed to be, I would like to attempt to repair the controller by putting the correct resistor back in place.

Are there any Power Gear slide out experts here? Would anyone have a schematic for this controller? Or has anyone else ever had to replace this resistor? Or does anyone have one of these controllers sitting on a work bench, so they could look to see what the resistance of R6 is?

From what I see by doing a search, a new controller is $200+, so I figure it's worth at least trying to repair it.
