2015 XLR 29HSF Where is slide out controller

Slide out stuck out.

Cannot find the slide controller anywhere to determine if there are error codes and to use the manual override.

Have any of you good people been able to locate the controller in your XLR?

Thanks for the reply, RSV4Pilot.

I just went out and checked under the master bed and under the dinette and did not find the slide controller.

Any other thoughts where to find it, anyone?

They have hid this one really good!

That's where it is in my 27hfs.

The 29hfs is different. There is nothing under the bed area except for a battery cut off switch.

I pulled the back out of the cabinet under the kitchen to get a visual on the slide out switch, which is located on the end of the cabinet next to the door. The wiring to the switch goes behind cook top and appears to go behind the refrigerator.

I have searched all around the pantry area, the furnace, the bathroom pantry and still cannot find it.

I need to get this slide pulled back in so I can move the camper to its winter storage spot.

I went to the dealership today, they had not a clue. They suggested I look in places I already had, like under the dinette and kitchen sink.

A service tech suggested something that helped me close the slide.

He told me to press and release the slide out button twice, followed by pressing and holding slide in button. Repeat these steps until the slide is fully closed.

Each time I did as he suggested, the slide closed about 2 inches. Several cycles and the slide closed all the way.

Tomorrow I will call the Forest River factory warranty number to see if they can help identify where the slide controller is located

Funny. I'm going to the factory tomorrow. I'll ask where it is.

Wow, that explains why I couldn't find it. I would have never thought to look there.

Thanks a lot RSV4. I appreciate your help!

What a great forum.
