still no luck....

discovered a cable off.
This is fixed, I replaced the switch as slide would not move. I thought it may have burned out....apparently not.
When the switch is pressed there is noise from my fuse/breaker panel but no movement.
Anyone have any suggestions?

We haven't manually extended the slide yet...difficult to access...hoping for help tonight.

changed switch, motor would not work,disconnected trailer from shore power, turned off main power at breaker, turned main power on and reconnected shore power, in essence rebooted the trailer and whatta ya know slide motor worked...reconnected cable and everything is fine now!
Not sure how the power thing worked but I don't care really. lol

Well after much ado...I replaced the switch, reattached a cable that had come off the slide pull system, and all seemed well in the driveway.
Once at the campsite...no joy.
Brought the camper home AGAIN and after great difficulty got the slide extended to look at the motor only to discover that two wires had melted their insulation when the motor overheated and were now making contact.
I fixed this and so far have had no further issues.
I am installing an inline fuse (40 amp) to hopefully negate this issue in the future and perhaps prevent a fire. I say this because the wires heated to the point that the switch became hot. To me not a safe thing to happen.
