Slideout not working on Fleetwood Icon 2009 (built on

Customer Question

Slideout not working on Fleetwood Icon 2009 (built on sprinter chassis). It has worked all season with no issue, including yesterday. Stuck on the in position. Power to the switch is OK, but there is no power to motor. As far as I can tell the main breaker is before the switch (breaker near battery at front of vehicle; switch in back interior) and that also test continuous with a multimeter.
My thoughts:
-Blown interior secondary breaker or fuse (I don't see one)
-Sensor to detect is the vehicle is level is defective (Not sure if there is one in the system)
-Emergency brake sensor is defective (definitely has one of these in the system)
I don't see a fuse on the inside panel box and have reset the breakers in that box to be sure that the slide is not tied into one of those. Main changes since yesterday when it last worked: it was 105 degrees and we brought the slide in with the AC running (on generator). Can't think of any other new variables.
