Hi my name is Robert...

Most of these slide-rooms are wired directly to the battery so I would go to the battery inspect all your cables, make sure the battery voltage AT the battery is about 12 volts, if the voltage is under 11 volts the room might not want to work. Sometimes on the cable from the slide-room motor they will use an inline fuse or breaker, as a general rule it would be 18" from the battery and can be on the frame. IF you see any check for voltage to each post to chassis ground and make sure the voltage is close. IF the voltage on one side was very low then it is the problem. Below is a picture of the breaker. Beyond that I would check all you interior fuses, could be a motor issue or a controller problem. IF it is an ALL electric slide I would get a battery and jump the motor leads and see if the room runs out, you should be able to make it go in and out jumping power direct, if it is a hydraulic room then it would be a bit more difficult.... Hope this helps some... Robert

Breaker. (most have a tiny tab on them that pops out when they trip)
