jacwjames Posted August 25, 2022 Share Posted August 25, 2022 I pulled both my slides in last week without a problem to move the coach ~5' to access the engine bay and remove the tow bar. This AM I needed to get to the bedroom closet and the slide was dead, same with the front. Checked the 5 amp fuse in the slide control module and it was blown. This has happened in the past so I tried to put a new fuse in and it blew. So I had a bigger problem. I removed the slide control module and took and tested on my generator slide which uses the same module. It worked so that ruled out module. I unplugged both motors, front was easy but the bedroom slidemotor is accessible when you lift the bed and remove a cover and then had a heck of a time reaching the connector for the motor with the slide in. So not knowing what I was going to get into I moved the small slide out using a battery charger and short jumpers. Put a new fuse in the control module and it held. Plugged the front slide motor back in and the fuse blew. Unplugged again Put a new fuse in and plugged in the bedroom slide motor and tested and it worked. So this isolated the problem to the front slide. I ohmed the motor and it tested "0" ohms, so it appears the motor is shorted. Is this a correct assumption???? I actually have a spare motor/gear box so I'll swap tomorrow. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
