Unhappy Slide out won't come in

Just returned from weeklong trip and made it home without issue. Spent week in hot summer sun without an awning as it broke several weeks ago and dealer got wrong parts in. Another day/night shade is now broken. And now the living room slide will not come in. Bedroom slide came in fine, but living room came in about two inches and just quit. Won't go in or out and isn't making any type of sound. We've reset all breakers and everything else is working. Any ideas?

Each slide unit also has it's own fuse did you check that?

There is a fuse panel right next to my circuit breaker panel on the base of the bed...is that where your circuit breaker panel is located?

Ok, so hubby knew where fuses are (base of bed by circuit breaker). He has wiggled and pulled them out ant put them back in. All looks fine but no change in slide out moving. No sound, nothing. Guess we'll be calling for mobile service in the morning.

Do you know what kind of motor you have? I have two different types and there are emergency retraction methods for each. The schwintek (sp?) is a bit more difficult, but my main slide has a provision to put a 3/4 socket on it and manually retract. Sorry I can't be more help.

Thanks for the useless help Hawk. We have read and read. We are not mechanically inclined and rely on our friends for assistance when it is over our heads. Not sure why you felt the need to be so sarcastic. All other replies were appreciated.

We would have thought of the fuses eventually, but the quick replies above were of great help. Thank you. We usually camp with a large group and someone in that group almost always has an answer or the right tool needed. This time the problem is in our driveway. When our friends can't figure it out, we pay for service.

I would switch the fuse with one of the same amperage. Sometimes a fuse will blow, but will still look good. I have seen fuses fail near the tab and not necessarily in the middle.
