Slide outs donít slide

2016 MBS 2401R w/ 2 slide outs. Neither work. Coach batteries shorted internally and were replaced. Is there a Ďresetí? Fuses in the fuse box pass continuity check with a multi meter. Fuses somewhere else? Thanks!

I can't remember if that unit has hydraulic or electric slides, but they usually have a separate dedicated fuse either near the slide or near the batteries. A lot of times it'll be a resettable fuse (breaker) mounted to the frame.

30’ Forester forest. batteries went dead in 15 days. Been charging for 24 hours and slide will not work. All I get is a click sound. Do I need to level first or should they work? What am I missing? I’m new to all this. Thanks for any help.

If you have Schwintek slides, you probably need to reset the controller.
If they're not Schwintek then you probably have a fuse at the remote receiver or near the motor.

Thanks BAMA. They are Schwintek controllers. How do you reset them?

There are a lot of internet videos on how to do this.

The manual says to press the in and out switch alternately to clear any errors and the slide should work normally then. If it doesn't take a look at the controller and see what the error is.

Here's a link to a Schwintek video of the controller and procedures.

Next to the door In the step well is your BCC (Battery Control Center). Inside it are some fuses and resetable fuses that can cause this problem if they are tripped. Are your other 12 Volt things like your lights, steps, radio or propane alarm working normally? Are you plugged into 120 AC shore power? Have you tried your slides with your engine or generator running? There are also some 12 Volt breakers in or fastened outside of your battery box. They can be reset by moving the lever or pressing a little button on them.

I’ve tried everything suggested in the thread. Watched lots of you tube videos. Slides still don’t work. I’ll bet is something simple. Any ideas?

Is the controller showing any lights or error blinks?
Do you have 12 volts at the controller?

Is there 12 volts at the switch?
Is the 12 volts passing through the switch when it's pressed (check in both directions)?
Is there 12 volts at the switch terminals on the controller when pressing the slide switch?

Have you tried the override function of pressing the mode button repeatedly?

There is 12v at the switch.
The 12v passes through the switch, both ways.
Voltage at the switch terminals on the controller, but it fluctuates and then the red and green leds flash alternately about 4times.
I cannot get the override to work.

I’ll post what the dealership says the problem was with both the slide system and the leveling system. I’ve got to 9now how to fix it. I’d die if everything got stuck when out. I’ve got roadside service bit I believe it takes 24-36 hours to get roadside service.

Thanks for the help. The dealership I got it from will not help, told me to call the manufacturer.

You need to count the flashes of the red and green lights.
The green light is for the motors. One flash is for motor 1 and Two flashes is for motor 2.
Once you've counted the green flashes (Sounds like it may be motor 2), count the red flashes.
The red light is for the error code.
2 flashes = Battery dropout
3 flashes = Low battery
4 flashes = High battery
5 flashes = Excessive motor current
6 flashes = Motor short circuit
8 flashes = Hall Effect signal not present
9 flashes = Hall effect power short to ground

Once you've counted the flashes come back and let us know what they are and maybe we can help figure out how to fix it.

I'm a little concerned by the voltage from the switch fluctuating at the controller. Do you have a volt meter that you could hook up and take some readings over a few seconds? If so, take a voltage reading at a convenient place and see what it is. Then press the button and watch the voltage. See if it drops and then spikes up pretty high. report what you find.

The voltage is now steady at the controllers when the switch is pushed in, shore power so 13.5v, both directions. Now the controllers each flash one green and eight red.

That means that Motor one's hall effect sensor isn't sending a signal to the controller. It could be as simple as a wire loose at a connector. I'd check the wring from the controller to the motor. Start at the easy place which is probably the connector at the controller. There's also a small connector near the motor that may be loose.
