We purchased a Sunseeker Class C last year. Used it all last summer with no problems.
Took the unit out of storage and de-winterized it just after Easter.
When we were loading up to go on our first trip of this season, I noticed the slide was out and asked my wife if she had put it out for some reason to which she replied that she hadn't, so I retracted it...Hmmmmmm?
We went to our destination and had some issues with getting the slide to go out, but didn't think anything about it until we were getting ready to leave. The slide wouldn't come in!!!
I checked the power and the fuse and all was good.
We checked online for some forums to see what to do and found numerous recommended solutions but the general consencus was to find the controller and do a reset.
When I found it I realized what had probably happened...
The controller was mounted directly under the 12V water pump (BAD choice on Forest River's part!) and when I was bleeding the air out of the water lines during de-winterization, water entered the controller and shorted out the extend circuit!
Not knowing what had occurred, I think the issue with getting the slide out again burned up the controller, No LED's, No Reset...
I have enough knowledge about the workings of DC circuits and was able to by-pass the controller and jumper the motors to get the slide back in.
If you are stuck in this situation where the controller is bad but the motors are still good, AND are comfortable performing the task, I have attached a by-pass wiring schematic to get you back home or to a service center.
If nothing else, show my solution to your Roadside Assistant Technician and he can do it for you?
CAUTION***REMEMBER TO BLOCK THE SLIDE INSIDE THE UNIT SO IT DOESN'T MOVE OUT WHILE TRAVELLING!!!
As commented on by previous threads, accessing & disconnecting the motors wasn't an option since my wife & I couldn't get the slide to push in.
I am awaiting a new module from my local RV dealer, and will be SURE to have them relocate it as far away from the water pump as possible!
GOOD LUCK, hope this helps someone else out of a bad situation!!
