Slide problems

Ok I have 2 slides one in bedroom and in the living in my 5er. Now the problem is when I have them extended fully and start to retract them the bedroom comes in first no problem, now the other comes in almost all the way and stops, its like the power just cuts off. I go the the panel check the breakers none broken so I go back to the switch and it comes the rest of the way in. I know the slides work on 12v so what could be going on here??

I wonder if there is a resettable circuit breaker?
But it still shouldn't be tripping the breaker, unless it is faulty and weak.

It should not trip a breaker as it is 12v should it????

I just went out and used the outside switch to run them in and out. As the slides were coming in the bedroom came in just fine as the other started in it came in about a foot and stopped. I noticed a clicking sound in the relay when it stopped so could it be the relay? It does it everytime at the same spot.

Yes. Our fifth has 12v breakers in behind the battery box in the front compartment. But I believe mine have to be reset by hand. I have heard others talk of breakers that reset automatically. I would have thought one of them would have posted something by now.
Anyone?

Here is a picture of what I am talking about. It only does it when you bring the slide in.

There aren't any breakers behind my battery box all I have is a couple of copper bars with the wires running from it with 2 inline fuses.

Yes it is a solenoid/relay to be honest. My ? is can just one side of it go bad and not the other as it has forward and reverse.

What if you bring the faulty slide in first? Does it stop at the same place or does the bedroom slide then stall? If the latter situation, maybe you have low power.

The bedroom slide always comes in first and goes out first it is not an option.
