Pool noodles is what I was referring to.

What year? Probably hydraulic. Even with the noodles on it it shouldn’t get stuck.

BTW, why did you put it in because of a storm. Just leave it out, they are weather reaistant.

2017. It is parked on a farm and with storm approaching we decided to return to town. We donít leave slides out when we are not there.

Just a wag. Check this circuit breaker for the switchblade being tripped. It will be close to the coach batteries on the battery compartment wall.

Added: This is if your slide is hydraulic.

It is only the living room slide that does nothing when pushing the out/in switch. The bedroom slide is working fine.
Is there a separate circuit breaker for each slide?
Not sure if it is a coincidence but earlier yesterday we found we were unable to extend the awning. Makes no sound when pushing that out/in switch.

Not sure when the bedroom slide switched to electric in the Georgetown but if your bedroom slide is hydraulic then the breaker I mentioned is not tripped. The awning is fused directly off one of the coach batteries via inline fuse.

Added: The breaker is for the hydraulic motor.

Just a thought. The ignition was off when trying the slide, correct?

Should have asked up front if hydraulic or electric slide. Don't know about an awning relay unless remotely controlled. Alrighty then.
