Wildcat slideout wonít go out

We have a 2012 Wildcat 302RL. For the 3rd time since we bought it new, one of the electric motors not working. Talked to Lippert about the Schwintek system. Tested things and he declared it is the motor. Code is 2 green and 8 red (wiring or motor). We really canít afford another visit to the dealer. I have instructions but we canít figure out how you can push that slideout out. It is only inches from the bathroom wall. Anyone have any suggestions on how to push it out?

Did you try operating it in manual override?
8 red flashes says that the hall effect sensor isn't being detected, so the motor may still run in override mode.

Here's what the troubleshooting manual says about manually sliding it out.
Here's a link to the manual Schwintek Troubleshooting Manual

Quote:
Disengage Motors, Manually Retract Room and Travel Lock
1. Bend back wipe seal. Visually locate motor and motor retention screw. Remove the screw (Figs. 4, 5 and 7).
2. Pull the motor up until disengaged. Replace the motor retention screw to hold the motor in this position (Fig. 6).
3. Repeat this process for both sides of the slide room.
4. Push or pull room back in to the opening while keeping the sides relatively even.
5. The room must be travel locked to keep room in place for road travel.

We need to push the room out to get to the motors and that is the problem to do any of this. There isnít enough space to physically get between slide and wall to push it out. We did the override where you push the button 7 times on the control panel til it flashes and push the OUT or In button. We reversed the wires and the one motor still does not work. Where is the hall effect sensor?

There's another page in the manual that instructs you to remove the external fascia in order to access the motor retention screw. You may have to do that on your unit.

The hall effect sensor is built into the motor. The electronic override should ignore that and just try to run the motors. Since that motor didn't run then, it's likely that the motor is bad.
