Lippert Strikes Again

Started pulling my slide in this morning and failed to notice a small foam pillow behind the bed. The slide came up against it and stopped. Now itís dead as a hammer, nothing in, or out. No lights blinking & reset does nothing. The 15A fuse in the panel is good, but....according to the instructions there should be a 30A, I suspect Forrest River has a hidden fuse someplace. Any one have any idea where that fuse may be in a 2251SLE ?The slide is only out 6Ē & Iím 200 mi from home so weíre going home. This is REALLY gonna mess up my aerodynamics 🙄

Not sure what Lippert has to do with it. Look for an inline fuse near the battery.

So... you left a pillow behind the bed, retracted the slide until it quit and that is Lippert's fault?

Anyway... what type of slide do you have? There are several different types and the ways to manually retract them are different.
Do you know the procedure for yours?

Unless Lippert left the pillow there I fail to see how they're responsible

As pointed out, look for an inline fuse. On my trailer the inline fuse is near the junction box where the 7-wire umbilical cable joins the trailer wiring. You might encounter one or two more, for things like the tongue jack and any other high current accessory you might have (awning?)

BTW, it's Forest River that installs these fuses, not Lippert.

Iím assuming hydraulic slide. You do not say what model number. I have a fifth wheel and in the front basement there is what appears to be just a buss bar but it is actually a resettable breaker bar. There are small buttons on the side that can be pressed to reset.

Trace the positive wire from your hydraulic pump back and you may find you have one. Mine is behind a swing away panel in the front basement..

See pics attached... sorry they load sideways

After answering I read your post again and looked up your model. Looks like you have schwintec slide so my post is probably irrelevant...

Slide fuse

There should be a 20 amp fuse under trailer in a green plastic fuse holder, close to the battery. I questioned why the put it there. Then realized if they had put in in the fuse box, my slide would have blocked access. My tongue jack fuse is also there.

That must of been some pillow! Hopefully you can find a fuse that needs to be reset. Look up Schwintek slides and you will find all kinds of information on what to do. Might be easier to just call a mobile RV service. Good luck.

Thanks for the CONSTRUCTIVE comments. Still no one with any idea as to WHERE Forest River spliced in a fuse for the slide on a 2251SLE.
