Another not the same trailer as yours, but both our slide controllers are mounted on the front wall of our main storage compartment right under the bedroom slide.

Update: on my first attempt today I was able to get in contact with a Jayco Tec. and I must say that my faith in Jayco has been restored. 1st I want to thank Billb800si for the links he posted relating to the Schwintec control system they were extremely helpfully and anyone with the Schwintec slid outs should make a copy. 2nd. the Jayco Tec. that I eventually got in contact with was very knowledgeable on the system and the location of the slide controls, by the way they are in the non door side garage bay on the ceiling. They are only about 4"X5" and very easy to miss. As turns out I have a bad slide control board. What the tec. had me do is plug the the kitchen slide motor connectors in the bedroom slide control board (they are right next to each other) pushed the bedroom slide button and the kitchen went out. so if this ever happens to anyone on the road just remember you can use one slide controller to work both if necessary. The manuals that are in Billb800si post also show to do a manual override and well as disengaging the motors so you can physically pull the slide out. A new control board is being shipped to me and my trip this weekend has been salvaged.

Glad to hear your on your way. I know they have upgraded both the motors and the controller since 2010. It nice to know that the controller is programmed to stop the slide if it comes up against something. Kind of like a garage door opener.

Glad you found it. Sounds like many were telling you where it was but you were looking for something bigger?

We're all in this together to help out.
Hope you had a wonderful trip. Enjoy your Jayco. We have the past 7 years....
Happy trails,

Thanks for all the info, now we know why our bed was loose after the first time the Schwintec was repaired at Richardson's RV in Riverside, they were disconnecting the controller. The slide actually worked one time, when picking up after repairs, and subsequently failed again when camping. It's now at Ardell Brown's RV in Draper, UT and we need to get back on the road. Still under warranty but what a disappointing situation spending another vacation waiting for parts. Never another Schwintec for us.

Contacted Jayco and a Tech called back. He has given me confidence that the slide will be repaired, and in time to give space for the wife & dogs so I can relax & finally enjoy some vacation time. He also recommended downloading the manual that someone above attached for reference. And I will NEVER again purchase any RV where the slide can't be manually extended & retracted, and demonstrated by a salesperson or seller!

Today, still under warranty, having our 3rd slide-out failure. Only good is that it failed going out. Been repaired by Richardsons RV in Riverside, CA and second time by Ardel Brown in Draper, UT. Where next? Any suggestions appreciated.

Noticed yesterday while unloading stuff so we can take in for slide repair that I can slide most of my hand inside the bottom of the slide and see daylight coming through. Will install braces before moving it. Anyone know whether Jayco has stopped using Schwintec slide mechanism? So far three vacations shortened due to the slide not working. But still under warranty, a consolation of sorts.

We have one on our BR slide and have had absolutely no problems. BTW I noticed that the newer rigs have them on the rear slides too.
