Customer Question
I have a 2017...

I have a 2017 Real Lite 178. Slide out is stuck out. Motor won't run. Can't get the slide in.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Not talking about lights. My problem is with the slide on a RealLite Mini 178.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MINI yourself? What have you tried so far?

Looked at battery and fuses. All are good.
