Not sure which motor Alfa uses but I may be able to help you with a little troubleshooting. What can be done to verify the motor is bad is hook up 12 volts directly to the motor and see if the room moves in and out. This can be done by cutting the wires at the motor and getting some jumper wires hooked to a good 12 volt battery such as a car battery or the house battery in the coach. IF the room moves it is not the motor. Normally an electric motor for a slide room will have a motor, control box (which may have fuses and relays) and the switch. The controller should be marked and can be located in several areas. IF the motor works when hooked up directly then I would get a test light and probe all the fuses in the house distribution box and check for power at the motor.. I have run into this before with some slide motors. The manufacturer could have made it's own design and it is hard to obtain any info, the motor should have a sticker or markings to indicate the manufacturer of the motor... I hope this helps and if you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to contact me..
