Slide controller location

Perhap one of you out there or Joshua Cavatt can answer the question as to the location of the controller for the dinette slide in my Forester 2701DS. I have located the box for the bedroom slide under the bed. It has the tracks on the side. But I can't find it for the dinette slide which has the track underneath. Cabinet outside under the slide has this. See photo. There is another forum member with a Coachmen and has similar problem locating his. I think they are the same.

The slide out on our 2012 Solera doesn't have a controller - just a power switch which reverses power polarity to change slide out direction (e.g., switch pressed up for out, down for in). Unless I am mistaken, controllers first appeared with the Schwintech slide outs ( the ones with the tracks on the sides).

Jleising- Good, that explains why we can't find one, there isn't. Now the big question is how do you manually bring in the slide, is it the thing in my photo?

On the Non-Schwintek slides there is a nut in one of the cargo compartments on the bottom of the floor that uses a socket and ratchet to crank it in and out.

Joshua, is that it in my photo? Do you remove the cotter pin and ratchet away?

Joshua,

My 2015 Prism 2150 has the Schwintech tracks on the sides of the dinette slide, and as yet I have not been able to find the controller that Schwintech uses to coordinate the two motors for the slide. I had an experience where the wall switch did not activate the slide motors, but luckily it worked after a few minutes of sweating bricks. If the controller can manually override the normal sequence in an emergency to get the slide back in, I really need to know where the controller location is hidden.

Also, the attached photo is of my electrical control panel. During my panic above, I noticed that there is no fuse specifically for the slide motors, which I would assume would be on the 12V side of the panel, and something like a 30 Amp fuse. Which is the fuse for the slide? The "GP" on the 120V side is also a mystery, but not the slide?

Thanks for your assistance.
Steve
