Slide Not Working On Salem 28RLDS


I have followed this forum since last May when we purchased a new 28RLDS. We have had some issues with the trailer but overall Forest River( Salem Wayne Bigler) has been responsive. Purchased in US as unit was unavailable in Canada at the time. Canadian Dealers are unwilling to repair so we're going it alone. The Main Slide switch in the trailer has worked intermittently since purchase although selling dealer checked it on a return trip last year and said they repaired some loose connections. We are currently on an extended trip in Western Canada and this morning the slide would not retract using either the main switch or the remote. After a few telephone calls and with help from fellow campers one of which was an electrician we were able to find 2 fuses blown (1, 20 & 1, 30amp) After replacing same and resetting the controller using the instructions printed on it we were able to operate the slide with the remote. We are continuing our trip and hoping the slide will continue to operate on the remote. I am wondering if the switch in the trailer is defective?

Any input would be appreciated.

It's hard for us to say if the switch is defective or if it's a bad connection somewhere else. If you can find someone else that's electrically inclined, they can easily test the switch to see if it's the problem or not.
