GO AHEAD

Does your switch have any name on it? Fleetwood has used a number of various makes of slideout hardware over the years. And is it all electric or hydraulic?

THE REFRIDGERATOR HAS RECENTLY STOPPED GETTING COLD

The slide modules that you describe are probably from Power Gear. It would say that. They do have a fuse on them, so check the one that won't work. And the fridge issue is probably not related to the slide out problem, especially if it comes on at all.

WHERE IS THE FUSE ?

Power Gear modules have a 25 amp slo blow fuse on the board. Most boards are mounted side by side in a storage bay on the wall or ceiling.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I'VE NEVER NOTICED ANYTHING IN A STORAGE BAY . THE ROOM WORKED INTERMITTANT THEN STOPPED

See the attached link with a wiring diagram of these. They can be under the sink or under the bed or under the fridge. No one place they put these. https://pdxrvwholesale.com/products/power-gear-slide-out-controller-14-1098-upgrade-kit-800181s

WOULD THAT BE LABLED BATTERY POWER CONTROLL

No. That is under the hood usually and does not have anything to do with the slideouts.

MINE IS BY THE PROPAINE TANK ON THE SIDE

You can give Fleetwood Customer Service a call at(###) ###-####tomorrow and ask them to e-mail you a copy of the wiring diagrams for this coach. They will need the FIN number which is usually found behind the driver's seat on the wall.

ILL LOOK FOR THE BOARD TOMORROW IF IT STOPS RAINING , IS IT POSSIBLE TO HELP ME WITH THE FRIDGE ?

I can, but they usually want to keep the question to one issue. What is the make and model of your fridge?

Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
NORCOLD 1200 I BELIEVE , DOUBLE DOOR WITH THE ICE MAKER

That is probably due to a tripped out hi limit switch sensor. See the attached link for that information. https://www.arprv.com/troubleshoot-norcold-recall.php

BACK SID OF FRIDGE CORRECT ?

BACK SIDE OF FRIDGE

Yes. Open up the outside vent cover. Look for a red light on.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
OK I WILL CHECK IT AS SOON AS THE STORMS BLOW OVER , THANK YOU

You are most welcome! Get back to me later if you need more. I can tell you that batteries that are failing or low on water can cause either of these issues. Best have them load tested to find out if they are viable. They usually begin to fail about 3 years old.
