Hi my name is Robert...

Many times the slideroom will be wired directly to the battery, so go to the battery and make sure you have good voltage, it should be over 11.5 volts. Sometimes you might also find a breaker from the slideroom motor to the battery, below is a picture of what the breaker could look like, as a general rule they like to stick them 18" from the battery and can be on the frame, if you see ANY at all you should have voltage on each post to chassis ground. Sometimes you will have more then one breaker near the battery. Most have a tiny tab on them that will pop out when they trip. IF that is not the issue then you might have a slideroom controller problem, the controller would be between the switch and motor.

I would start by checking the voltage at the battery and make sure you do not have a tripped breaker near the battery... Hope this helps some... Robert
