2017 Coachmen RV Freedom Express Liberty Edition 321FEDS

Our bedroom slide switch is not working. It worked once to slide the slide out and back in, but now it won't do anything. Any suggestions on what could be the problem? If it is a switch issue, where can I get one online and can I change it myself?

There is probably a 30 amp "self-resetting" 12v circuit breaker at the front of the trailer. Mine is near where the 7-way cable mates to the wires that go inside the trailer underbelly. I have a self-resetting one, but some have a small button on the side you have to push to reset. Mind has a 10gauge orange wire going from that breaker into the underbelly and to the slide out. Although we have different model FE trailers, I would start there. The newer models have all the breakers inside the underbelly, but I think a 2017 will still have them next to a junction box where the 7-way cable connects to the trailer wiring.

If you have a volt meter or 12v test light check for 12v on both sides of that breaker to ground at the frame. If it is on both sides, the breaker is not tripped. Time to look for that orange wire at the slide out motor side of the circuit and see if there it power there also, etc...
