All slides work great still. Replaced fuses. Relay and checked switch. All are in working order. Hot wired the motor on landing gear, works great. Hooked back to switch, nothing. What could be the problem out of ideas. Battery is brand new full charge. WE need HELP Please! were dumbfounded. Disabled couple, not able to hand crank has a trip planned in a couple weeks would love to have this fixed for them. Please and thank you. any ideas appreciated

Check for power on the hot side of the switch, if no power it's not the switch. Now I would look for more fuses, could be in line fuses, not necessarily in a fuse panel!

Of all the things I've lost in my life the thing I miss the most is my mind!

Look for the 2 or 3 circuit breakers by the battery. One of my 3 tripped and I had to manually reset it. No problems since then.
