Have you pulled the switch panel and checked to make the switch hasn't gone bad or that you power to that point?

Looked at HF and didn't see one. Amazon carries a bunch of different ones and they aren't too expensive. Nice to have in the arsenal, also.

I have pulled the panel to make sure all connections were good and nothing else obvious might be wrong there, but have not measured anything there yet.
I will do that Saturday.

Thanks !

I have seen them at the local Home Depot. One may be in my future.

Thanks,
Ken

Now I just have to find out why 12volts are not getting to the relay.

Thanks Silver!!! I hope your surgery went well.

Hi Kenny,

Glad it worked. now you have a few decisions. You checked all the fuses and found none bad. Let's assume that is true, This leaves us with the connection at relay socket 87A broken. I suspect a bad splice. Others have had this happen elsewhere in the coach. To find you need to strip back the cable harness leading to the fuse holder and re-crimp. Could be a foot or many feet away, You could forget about finding the break in the wire and take the jumper you made and connect to fuse holder 87A. Repair complete and coach works as before, You could just leave the jumper connected to point 30 and have Forest River repair at the next frog rally. If you go the Forest River Repair route be aware the slides will now work while the coach is running down the street.

feels like I got run over by a truck or maybe a motorhome. With all the nonsense regarding painkillers in the news recently I was prescribed 1000mg Tylenol every 6 hours for pain (knee replacement). All that did was eat a hole in my stomach. But yes I am back. Not quite as quick yet so be kind.

That doesn't sound good. You don't need stomach problems on top.

Rich,
Looks great! Let me know how you like it! Don't know about the neck pillow part though. Might make it a bit too comfy when driving and cause me to nod off every once in a while!!
