What to do if the slide doesn't work?

I have a 2011 BHDS and my second slide out has been giving me trouble lately. When I go to set up, it won't slide out unless I fiddle with the fuses. I actually don't know which fuse powers the slide motor (there is a breaker for the 'Main Slide Motor,' but no mention of the second slide motor). None of the fuses are blown, but if I basically go press on them and wiggle them, the slide will then work. What do I do one day when it doesn't work at all? Is there a manual way to crank it out/in? My bottom is covered/insulated, so I can't see a whole lot under there.

That should've been covered during the walk thru but my dealer didn't show me how to pull the slide in if there is no power, I think the dealer should show how this is done with every camper that has a slide

On mine 07 314 bhds it to has the underbelly. If you look under there you will find a access cover mine are about 18x18 and you just remove that and you can see what appears to be the slide motor it has a bolt head on the end to turn to extend or retract the slide.
Hope this helps

Before you burn up the fuse holder and/or motor, I would pull that fuse holder apart and repair it. Either the fuse blades are not seated into the spades or the spades are loose or you have a loose connection. If you are not comfortable with this repair, find someone with electrical or electronics experience and see if they can help. You can also post up pics and I can help.

Sounds like you have isolated the problem. I would recommend finding the loose connection and either fix or have it fixed.

Agree, get the problem fixed before it grows, and gets more expensive.

On a side note, learn how to bring them in manually - you never know when you might need to. When I had a 32BHDS the underside wasn't enclosed, you just used a wrench. As stated above, there should be an access panel.

This IA why Jayco really should have model specific manuals.
