29hfs slide out won't open

Hi all. We went to open our slide out for the first time this season and it seems like only the slide on the bedroom side is working, it moves about 1.5 inches and then stops. Has anyone experienced this? Or have advice on the manual method of extension/retraction? Thanks

First, I assume the battery (ies) is charged abd good. Then, below the slide there is the controller. its about 7" square ... remove the cover and see if there is an error code? Obstructions? Will the non working side move with "by hand" help?

Thanks. We checked the black box and called the rv appears that the motor has failed. I guess we are lucky that it is in the in position rather than the out. We'll get it fixed in the next while before the warranty runs our.

The repair was done under warranty and included a new motor and four hours of labour. The tech said that he had to take off the outside corner molding and then had to drill to get at the screw that holds the motor in. He also said that many slide outs use the same motor and the problems are usually caused by the wire connections breaking..they typically keep the motors in stock because of the frequency.
