Slider Motor Wiring

I would like to restore the slider motor wiring in my 1999 Pinnacle to its original configuration. When the motor failed, I discovered a “patch” that consisted of a pair of wires running from the house batteries to the switch on the dash, and another pair of wires running from the switch to the motor. The dash switch is a momentary DPDT that serves to reverse the polarity (and thus reverses the motor).

The wires from the switch to the slider motor were simply run underneath the chassis, in what was probably meant to be a temporary work-around. Where these wires meet the motor, they are simply spliced into the existing wiring, which is two #10 wires that come out of the main wiring harness that runs the length of the coach.

So far, I have yet to find where the #10 wires lead, but clearly these wires either went to the switch, or, perhaps a relay controlled by the switch.

My basic question is: what would the original circuit have looked like?
Would the original circuit have used a relay, or did most manufacturers simply wire the switch in series with the motor? Also, would the Intellitec battery control center be part of the circuit?

Assuming they have continuity, I would prefer to go back to the original wiring, and do away with the work-around. Any info on this would be appreciated, thanks.

Battery power in most cases would be protected by a 20 amp fuse and the circuit would look like this .

So, no relay, just power to the switch, and then onto the motor?
Any ideas as to where those original wires show up in the front end of the RV?

The diagram I posted was representative of the way my 2005 5er was wired for slide control . I've worked on RVs with a reversing relay pack and others with control modules like my current coach . I cannot say where a relay pack or a controller would be on your RV ; but I don't believe it would be part of the BCC .
In the paper I have on BCC ( although there could be other systems by BCC part number ) I don't see a slide power 12 volt circuit breaker or fuse listed.
