I live near Edmonton alberta. if it a motor where would I get a new one. could we install this on our own or does it have to go in?

Hi my name is Robert...

Need to check the voltage at the battery, the slide out is normally wired directly to the battery, the voltage should be around 12.8 volts and not go under 11 volts when you are trying to run the room, check all the cables as well make sure none are loose or corroded, I might also pull the battery and have it load tested.... I know one place that you might be able to get a motor, he used to be an expert on this site and now runs his own parts store specializing in slide-outs, click HERE for that info. IF you still need more help please let me know.... Robert
