Slide controller readouts

So in looking over the coach I noticed this display blinking red and green. One green blink followed by six red blinks.

This is telling me there is a motor short circuit on one of the two motors?? The slide previously worked without issue though I'm afraid to check after seeing this pattern? Am I delusional and this is a normal blinking meaningless led or is something apparently still broken with my slide out?

What readout pattern currently displays on your slide out controller? Thanks for the info as always.

That is a good question. I will go look tomorrow. A fault code of any kind cannot be normal.

Thanks kindly! I've cycled the house power dial hoping for a change but it's the same pattern on reboot. One green and six red. Steps not retracting either and short circuit on a slide motor, say it ain't so..

Just turned the power on and checked the controller. No lights. Only a little spider crawling around in the compartment. I think motor 1 is the one by the bed so you might need a mirror to see if the harness that runs down the inside of the slide frame is damaged.

There are instructions on how to 'over ride' the box at the Lippert Components web site. Print them off. "I think" that you need to 'over ride' the program and let it 'relearn' the perimeters. There is a little button inside that cavity where the light is flashing. Push that button (it says on the box) I think 6 time and hold it down until the light flashes crazy like. Release the button and now try to move the slide and steps. The motor will 'count' the revolutions going out and coming in, it needs to 'relearn' its operation. If this does not help, call Lippert Components

Interesting info. The slide was out of alignment and so I had to realign, I wonder if that did something. I'll look into it, thanks for the thought.

That did it.... what I did in the past was 'over ride it' to get it going and then run it all the way out. Run it in a foot and run it out, do this about three or four time and it will know the out board length. then it should be fine to run it all the way it as it will 'count' the revolutions going in.
