motor home..I push the switch to xtend the slideout, I hear nothing

Customer Question

I have a 2004 Condor motorhome made by R-Vision. My living room slideout will not extend. When I push the switch to xtend the slideout, I hear nothing. If the in switch is pushed, a slight motor sound is heard. I have replaced the house battery with a high cranking battery. I have two other slides in the bedroom. They both work fine. The work by cable. I have looked for a manual crank and have not been able to find one. I looked for circuit brakers and fuses to no avail.

If anyone has a wiring diagram or schematic for this vehicle, that would help a lot.

There is a RV motor control which is made by Kinetec and the slideout motor itself. I cant get a name on the motor only the part number. There is a switch on the motor that is marked break and end.

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
the motor is located under the coach. by the way, I tried to extend the slide a few days ago and it went out with no problem. I did some work in the coach and retracted the slide to make sure nothing was binding. I then tried to extend the slide and again, nothing. I could get the slide all the way in with no problems but I cant get it to go out. If I push the out side of the switch I hear nothing, pushing the in side I heaar the motor.

First thing to do is remove the switch, and see if the fault lies there, how many terminals are on the switch?
