Do you have a manual button to push in addition to the touchscreen for the slide?

thanks for all the help guys! I learned a lot about the camper already. So when i operated the touch screen to move the slide, I could hear a relay clicking in the cabinets. I took the panel off to expose the noise and found the fuse panel there. I found that a 30 amp fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse and all is well. Slide has operated normally with the trailer leveled and a functioning fuse! Thanks again!

Not to Hijack this thread, but since it is solved<G>...

This is a GOOD Lesson learned folks and fortunately ya'll learned your lesson in your driveway We learned ours in a state park 40 miles from anything in NM

Put together a parts bag (a GREAT buy is a 12-15" tool bag at Harbor Freight for $7-8) load this sucker up with spare fuses, hose clamps, crimp connecters for 16-12 GA wire, water hose washers, teflon tape, multimeter, circuit tester, duct & electrical tape, a cheap water hose splice repair kit, and anything else you feel would be useful!

Helps also to get a decent all-in-one "Home handyman" tool set (We got great one at Sam's that has everything from screwdrivers to sockets n wrenches a hammer and a decent level for @ $40)

NEVER leave home without these

Update! We were preparing the camper for its maiden voyage, making beds, filling cupboards etc, and found the slide to blow the fuse again. So far, it has not completed two full cycles of the slide without blowing the fuse. Called the dealer and they said it is either a bad motor or a bad ground, and to bring it back to them. Looks like a 2 hour road trip to Rapid City for repairs. I think we will use it over the 4th and just take extra fuses with us.

Can you manually override the motors with a crank? No familiar with your trailer, but ours has a crank access holes. That would at least eliminate the chance that it is in a bind if your trailer is torqued. I don't think the "level" would affect it much as far as front to back or side to side....as long as it is not "torqued," meaning, twisted. Like holding both ends of a playing card and twisting in opposite directions. As long as the frame is "flat," level shouldn't matter much I wouldn't think.

Edit: I guess I missed the updates when I read then posted. Best of luck to ya.
