Slide out problem
Our 2004 235 Lexington slide out stopped working and is in. No problems with it before - just didn't move, or attempt to move, when we attempted to put if out. Appears there is no power to the OUT - IN switch on the control console. Can't find a fuse or circuit breaker for this, and can't find a wiring diagram either. Other switches on the console are powered OK. Seems like a no power to motor problem. The wiring to the OUT - IN switch seems capable of handling the amperage required for the motor to run, but perhaps there's a relay involved. Anyone have suggestions?

Slide out
The problem with the slide out not moving is absolutely MY OWN Fault ! When installing two new house batteries I inadvertently attached the lead that runs the slide out to ground on the batteries instead of attaching it to the + or positive side where it should be. After fixing that it works just fine! I shuda known better!

Glad you found it and thanks for letting the forum know what you corrected. I have found my smart phone works wonders for helping me remember which wires go where lol
