You can simply touch those 2 wires that go to the switch together for the "in" side, and if the slide works- bad switch. Randy

I have an 8255 and had the same problem with the wardrobe slide. Looked everywhere. Finally called the dealer. According to them the cue for that slide was an inline spade fuse hanging loose behind the power module. Actually I found 2 such fuses there. Found the bad one a d replaced it. Eventually I installed a spade version self-reseting breaker after 3 replacements. Really a slipshod way of doing this and there is no factory wiring diagram to go by. Hope my experience helps. Good luck.

In my rv, the positive wire coming off of the battery connects to a block with 2 posts. I did not know this was a circuit breaker with a tiny reset button on the bottom. The block has a rubber shield that I had to pull off to find the button. After resetting the slide worked. Thank you to forum members for helping me solve this problem. Hope this helps.

Wanted to thank you all for the posts. We were at a site and the rear slide on our Rockwood Roo did not work (had to retract by hand). After my wife found this post, i checked the wiring from the battery and, sure enough, the 30 amp fuse was blown.
this saved me a trip back to the dealer. Thank you guys.
