it may not have a fuse but rather have a circuit breaker as stated above ......
Some are resettable some are not .
My slide fuse albeit a different camper is in the fuse panel distribution panel.

Any one know where I can find the rascal?


Thanks
Normally the fuse or breaker (can be a 1/2" square by 1.5" long cartdrige with small reset button) is located close to the power source or in a panel. It could be close to the motor but its unusual. Didn't they provide a manual source to bring it in like a long portable crank handle? sometimes a button cover on outside the slide in line with the motor mechanism, maybe 1/2 to 3/4" drive head on it.

I think Turbs is off line. I believe he is suggesting that is a one time fuse. can get at Auto supply stores. Best to test it first, without a meter you can tape two pieces of wire to a 12 volt bulb. Arrange test leads either side of fuse one at a time, with the 2nd lead attached or touching ground, clear area of frame will do. Bullb will light on input cable side, should light on 2nd side also, if not the fuse is blown and must be replaced.

If you look at the fuse panel inside where the small spade fuses are and have someone else press the button for the slide at the same time a red light will light up beside the blown fuse.

Turbo...I replaced this today...still no luck. The landing gear works fine, but the slide doesn't, so I'm guessing it's somewhere down the line...what say yee?

Any idea appreciated....TC

sorry I couldn't or didn't answer your question last night......

Do you have power at the slide motor ?

ONE of the best items you can have in your camper is a simple volt ohm meter.
You'll be surprised how much you'll use it !

They range from 10.00 to 250.00 and A ten dollar one will do just fine.

You need to do some testing and its best if you do it with a volt ohm meter.

When you get a meter I would start at the slide motor connection and work your way from there .
Obviously it would be great to know if you had a breaker as I posted above or a fuse thats inline or even in the converter fuse panel.
Speaking of your fuse panel are your 12 volt circuits not labeled ?

Mine happen to be all labeled and the fuse for slide say "main slide" .
