SLIDE CLOSED - Sticking

Have the Surveyor Model 200MBLE - It has the dinette slide. 2016 model.

Slide worked fine this weekend. Home to unload yesterday... attempt to run slide out and NOTHING. Wouldn't move. No straining motor sound. NOTHING. Checked the 15 amp fuse in my main breaker/fuse panel. Looked fine but changed anyway for good measure. I am plugged into shore power (120). Other 12 v electrical working fine. Battery charged overnight. Still no movement or noise from the motor.

My guess its something electrical. I am fairly new to this and have never tried the hand crank to run the slide out. Thought this might be a start? Read somewhere though that this might (had crank) not be the best next step?? Plan to try and figure it out this evening. Thoughts or ideas greatly appreciated.

Check for a 30 AMP fuse, mine blows when using battery power to pull it in, I replaced the fuse with an auto 30 AMP breaker

This. Same thing for my 285IKDS. With my last TT, I learned to push the button to close the slide once it's closed to give myself peace of mind that it is in fact closed. Make the clicking noise. I've found that when I do this with the Surveyor, the 30A fuse blows. Still trying to break myself of that habit. Haven't tried the auto 30A breaker yet, but I heard it's a fix.

There is often a fuse or circuit breaker under the TT at the frame. Take a look there for another fuse/breaker.

I have a 2018 surveyor 247 and I too have a problem with the dinette slide and blowing fuses once the end of travel is reached. On mine there is a second inline fuse... to access it you need to remove the 4 screws and pull back the switch panel andthe wiring... it should be right there on that glob of spagetti.

I just bought a 2018 200MBLE and also have this issue. Seems pretty crazy this hasn’t been addressed yet by FR given it is a well known issue that is on going for a few years now.
