Forest River sunseeker 2800qs slide help.

I moved this post to this forum hoping someone can help me to fix this problem with my schwintek slide.

My closet slideout has started acting up. I finally found the controller under the bed. Motor #2 ( forward motor) starts to push out and then stops while the rear motor wants to continue until it binds. The controller blinks green two times for motor #2 and the red blinks 8 times indicating the hall signal is not present (from the schwintek trouble shooting guide). However the controller label says 8 red is a short. When I reset the controller it all happens the same.
If the hall signal is not present how does the slide move even a few inches?

Have any of my fellow schwintek slide users experienced this type of problem? I am leaning towards the controller being bad. I have not ruled out a wiring issue so far. I am not sure how to get to the hidden wires to check. Any help will be appreciated.
