Hi my name is Robert....

IF this is an ALL electric slide it could be a Power Gear, I know for some time Fleetwood was using them find the motor and look on the back of the motor for a handle and make sure it is not dis-engaged. IF that lever moved it might allow the room to run out. Click HERE to view, what I also might do for testing is once the room is in disconnect the motor leads and see if the room still comes out, if so then it has to be the motor..... Hope this helps some... Robert
