First my thanks to this forum if not for solving my problem but for getting my thinking out of the box.
After the constant error signal 2 green and 8 red flashes from the beginning telling me motor 2 with a problem I decided to swap wires at the controller I now had harness one on motor 2 and two on motor one. I again tried to operate the slide and it bound up, this time the error code indicated motor one with 8 red flashes, success. This now tells me the problem is in the wiring. I unplugged the wires from motor two and began to remove the wire, when I got to the bottom where there is a wall mount wire clip I noticed a small cut in the black outside shroud covering and bent at almost a 45degree angle. Just by removing the clip and straightening out the wire the slide worked normal . I now will cut back the black covering and inspect each wire. I believe the routing of that motor wire should be looked at to find a way to obtain a less stressed path.
After cutting back the covering and a close inspection (with an eye loop) of the wire I found no wire expose, I put a slight twist in the wires and taped them back up and put a loop in the wire at the bottom of tract. I operated the side in and out several times with no problems.
I've attached a photo of the wire that was anchored to the floor with a 45 degree bend around the plastic tract that runs across the slide.
Thanks again for all your help, maybe you can add this to your internal trouble shooting for wiring problem.
Tonight I can pour a scotch and think about the scotch and not slide problems
