Hand Held Remote Operation - Fixed

Since day 1 I have had issues with my hand-held remote for the Trilogy. The Awning functions (In-Out) worked backwards. Also, the bedroom side operation was backwards. I finally found enough documentation and dug out my meter to diagnose and resolve my problem.

The awning and bed slide switches in the customer interface panel always worked correctly. I couldn't figure out why I had problems with the remote not putting the slide/awnings out when commanded and likewise, in. I found the remote receiver and distribution panel. For my Trilogy, it was located on the curb side, inside the basement, inside the panel as you looked aft from the basement compartment door.

I opened the small panel and found the rack of fuses. On the back of this small panel is a list and the purpose of each fuse. This is a picture of the fuse rack and the back of the panel with the list of fuses and their purpose:

If you open the picture with the listing, you will see the first one (at the top) shows Fuse 1 - 15 AMP - Bed Slide (out) and the second one shows Fuse 2 - 15 AMP - Bed Slide (in). Testing for voltage on these two fuses agreed with the operation of the remote. That told me the output wires were connected incorrectly. I swapped the output (right side of fuse as you look at it) of fuse 1 with the output of fuse 2. I retested the function and it worked correctly with the remote. In was IN and out was OUT. Easy fix (and no smoke ).

I then proceeded to do the same with the outputs for the awnings (Fuse 7 & 8 and Fuse 9 & 10). Everything now works as it should according to the operation of the remote control. I also verified the operation of the switches in the customer interface panel and all is still working correctly as well. Nice to finally have the remote working as it should!

Great investigating and troubleshooting.

Thanks much for posting this, as the location and list will be help to others and the fix will help someone with the same issue.
