If you take an Allen wrench and turn the solenoid it should bypass and allow the slides to work

Lou, are you talking about the solenoid on the left (1 of 3, as the other 2 appear to be for the jacks) and making the adjustment from the bottom, or are you talking about the manual override adjustment on the front under the protective label? If the former, did you just have to turn it a bit to make the adjustment, as appears to be the case from post 16 here? So after making the adjustment, your slide worked fine by way of the switch?

Forgive me for being obtuse - I'm far from a mechanic, more of a desk nerd. But I am trying to learn and get better. I've been going out to the rig each day after work (and spent tome time on it this past weekend also) tinkering away, hoping to not let this beat me, especially when I get the feeling it is likely something relatively minor.

Thanks,

Wayne

No, not the pump override under the label. It is the solenoid on the left side, I only have three in mine. Yes just turn the Allen wrench a few times and it freed up mine enough to work. But remember this isn't a fix, it just allows you to use your slide until you can get it repaired correctly. Don't worry I am not hugely mechanical with this kind of stuff either and feel free to ask away, there's no problem with that, that is how we all learn.

Update: I finally got it fixed. It was a panel in the front compartment. It took a while to find it but it is working like new.

There was no fire getting to the slide circuit or whatever you call it

Hi Lou, I finally got a mobile RV repair guy come out, today around the same time as your posts , it turns out. It looks like he may have diagnosed the same issue. He called it a "module", and will be calling Cedar Creek to check it out further. Like yours, power was not properly flowing through it. When he bypassed the module, he was able to get movement in the slides. I will see how things go next week.

If you don't mind me asking, how much was that module/panel? I have extended warranty which hopefully will take care of it.

Thanks,

Wayne

I have extended warranty as well, so I didn't have to pay for either, just the deductible. It is still in the shop for body work, had a blow out, when I get it back I am sure the price will be listed.

I am now back in business with working slides! That Alta control panel was indeed the culprit. I got one shipped to me from Cedar Creek, and my brother and I switched out the old with the new, tested and all is well now.

Lou (or anyone that had similar issues), did you by chance use the remote to close your slides? I am wondering because I know I have and may have done so last time I parked the rig. When I stop pressing the button on the remote, it seemed to stick a little and would run for another second or so afterwards. Makes me wonder if maybe I fried the panel rather than it going bad. Either way, I may be more careful using remote, if I ever use at all. They sent a new remote too, so we will see.

But feels good to be fixed, and better that I did it myself this saving time and money (at least after paying for the dagnostic check anyhow).

Wayne

I'm glad you got it fixed and you're back on the road. I always use my remote to open and close the slides and I have from the beginning. I hope that isn't the problem because I like using it. I haven't got mine back yet because I had damage from a tire blowout and waiting for it to get back from The Body Shop.
