Hi. Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** perhaps I can assist you with this issue.
When you hit the switch, do you hear any noise at all? Any name on the switch? Any manual that you might have that came with the coach? There are a number of companies that make the slide hardware for these. IF I can determine which one you have it helps to narrow this down. Some, like Power Gear have a separate module that has a fuse. Others, like Lippert units don't. And when was the last time you had the batteries checked and serviced? Most slide out issues are a result of battery problems. And lastly, are you plugged into shore power or not? If you can get back to me with this information, I can assist you further. R.J.

No sound switch is hit, am told that there is power to switch. It is a Forrest river convenience center on the panel where the switch is. I can see the motor through the small area under couch but can not make out the name on the motor it looks like br??e. Batteries have all been checked and replaced and have tried it plugged in and just battery. We do have the emergency break on

sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I was out to lunch. So that is a "yes" to the meter or test light? IF SO, then rug up a ground lead that you will use for either one. Then you can pull the switch panel out. It should have a few screws holding it to the wall. Leave everything connected. Tell me how many leads and what colors they are TO the slideout switch. R.J.

We saw nothing about a meter so confused if we missed a message. Looking at back of switch there are three wires ...upper left is yellow, lower left is black, lower right is green, upper right is empty. Did not understand the ground wire explanation

I guess I am the one who may be confused here........I thought I had asked you if you had either a 12 VDC test light OR a small digital multimeter. Sometimes, our responses go out into e-space and are never to be seen again! And the "yes" to my question was that I thought. So do you have one of those items? With one of those we can test for power to the switch and go from there. The "ground" lead you would need is for either the meter or the test light. Let me know when you are ready to proceed. R.J.

Did not get that message...we will check it out.

First pic is of the meter, never used this correct?other pictures are of a circuit panel and some wires were behind the drivers seat under carpeted box...and use?
Expert:  Randall replied 2 years ago.
That meter won't work for this task.......and I really think that you need to have a mobile tech come and assist you OR someone who has a good working knowledge of 12 VDC circuits. I don't think I am making much progress here and so I will opt out of this and let another tech offer something that might be helpful. Sorry I wasn't more help on this one. R.J.
