Please help slide out stuck

Hey guys pretty big issue I tried to put my slide out on my 29hfs it went out 6" then the left side stopped moving . Now I'm assuming there's a motor on each side if that's true the motor on the left side is not working there's no noise I can't get it back in I don't see where the motor is or how to manually move the slide looking for help !!!

press the in button twice quickly, then press the out button. did both motors turn? I've had to inch mine in and out that way. you can unplug the motors from the controllers and manually push it in or out, plug them back in and it keeps the motors locked. any thing else and you should google schwintec (sp?) slide videos, there are a few that show how do do just about everything...

SaskJade just had the same problem. Look at controller (7" square black box below the slide for error codes (display under cover). You can find a manual online of as stated by PBH view a YouTube video.

Error code says there is a short in the wire between the controller and motor I can't remember the error number I want to say 8.

Now I watched a few videos but the issue here is I can't get the screw on the outside out because the slide is only out like 2-3 inches. Is there a way to just pull the motor from the inside without taking that screw out. Do I have to crawl between the slide and the ceiling on the inside.

I don't want to ruin your day but last year we had the same problem after a camping trip with our Cruiser RV TT. I finally looked under the trailer and found that our frame had bent upwards and the frame was stopping the slide from moving. I hope and pray this is not an issue for you but take a look under the unit just in case. It was determined to be a manufactures defect. The unit was considered totaled but replaced by insurance.

pull the fuse for the slide motors and you should be able to push the slide in or out to help. In my previous Thor MH I carried two precut 2x4's to insert in the top of the slide from inside the rv. This will keep the slide from going out if the motors are not powered or removed (if you can get to the bolt to remove them)

Hey guys so the problem continues I pulled out the motor and saw that some of the wires had come un soldered so I just bought another motor I'll re solder this one as a spare. Got the motor replaced and now if I hold the out button both motors start to go out but the right motor (the old motor) stops and the left motor (the new motor) continues to go out and it puts the slide very sideways. The opposite happens when I try to come in the new motor stops and the one on the right keeps comming putting it even more sideways! I was able to unplug one motor and get it straight. I'm hoping this is an easy fix any one got some solutions?

Hello,
I had issues with the harness itself. The hall sensor on the motor has no feed back so it stop. I wiggle the harness to get it to work again till the dealer replaced everything including the module. Why they don't mount the controller in a accessible location is also beyond me. As well I could get to mine as it was mounted in a cabinet blocked by the slide that did not work.

Maybe the motors are out of sync? Schwintek instructions or videos explain how to synchronize.

Yeah when I first got my motorhome I found my controller well hidden behind a drawer. My next "mod" will be to get into that area to instill some quality workmanship.
