318 rear slide out motor


My rear slide out motor is burnt up. I promise it's done. While bringing the slide in, it seems that the switch in the control center cabinet failed in the "in" position. This caused the motor to run, bound up for over an hour until i noticed the electrical fire smell...

The motor now only works in the in position. The switch in the cabinet melted.

I got the motor and actuator off the unit. It is toast. It seems that i cannot just buy the motor itself, even though out has a part number.

I need to know what part number to get to replace the entire actuator motor.

I an assuming i can find a new switch somewhere....

I am just glad it did not burn the camper to the ground, taking my house with it....

My wife is having surgery for breast cancer tomorrow, she's 34 and having a double mastectomy...

When it rains, it pours.... I can't catch a break...

Any help is appreciated and welcomed.
