Schwintek bedroom slide does nothing on 3170

Anyone know where this 30 amp fuse is on the 3170 ? The slide is in and does nothing. No noise , doesn't try to start. I have reset the controller multiple times, nothing
Thanks Steve

May have to go get it repaired. Earlier this year my slide worked but only went out two inches. Turns out I broke some time of "pin."

How do you "reset the controller" as you say?

The controller is in the outside storage compartment under the slide - mounted on the ceiling of the compartment.

Storey - Check for the LED flashes. Quite easy to diagnose. The circuit is protected by an automatic circuit breaker - I believe. Make sure the batteries are fully charged and the battery switch is closed. Seems like an obvious point but when you have 12 volts being provided by the converter, it is easy to overlook that someone opened the battery switch.

Have had it not come in several times before. Maybe the motor is toast or a wiring problem. It has been doing this on and off for six months and I just can't get the problem isolated

There are 2 motors on the Schwintek so not likely both are totaled. The control box will tell you what's going on based on the led flashes.

It says is the front motor. I just don't know if it the wiring or the motor.

Probably the wiring. I noticed mine exposed near the interior fascia under the bunk. I removed the fascia and secured the cable a little better. Unfortunately I didn't take pictures.
