28BH Slide out trouble

First, great site with plenty of helpful information. I have a 2010 Grey Wolf 28BH that I purchased new. Its been just right for my family and we have had very few problems until now. The slide will not come in. Does it have a fuse or reset somewhere? Maybe bad switch? Any guidance or experience would be helpful.

Your slide works off of 12 volt, is your battery full charged? The only fuse I know of is by your battery. If you have a multi meter you could pull your switch to make sure it is getting power and putting power out. I assume it is a rocker switch. Only other thing to do is crawl under the slide and locate the motor and see if you are getting power to it, when someone pushes the switch. It could be any of 4 things, battery is bad, switch is bad, motor is bad, or your fuse. I changed mine to an auto reset 40 amp. Mine is a bear to get to. I have not heard of any slide motors going bad so I think it's in the power to it...Sorry I can't be of more help, but that will get you started. Are you plugged into 110v shore power?

The camper is plugged into shore power at a camp site. My wife went by to check of camper and found slide would not come in. Everything electrical works in the camper except slide power. Could this be as easy as bad battery? I'm currently working out of town and will try to troubleshoot when I can. Thank you for the list of possible problems and places to start.

If you hear the motor try to turn but it doesn't move I would check the manual slide nut under TT and move it with a wrench or socket and then try again. My old TT the slide would stick until I moved the motor a little. HC
