problems with slide out !!!!!

we have a 2014 35sk chateau motor home, the front slide out will not come in all the way , is off. tried to synchronize it and does not work. sounds like the motors on the top quit working. It's a lippert system. does anyone know how we can fix it ???????:

Greetings and welcome

The wires on one of our motors snagged on something, we were lucky the slide would move a couple of inches per button push.

Go to YouTube and search for "schwintek", lippert even has some.


Using YouTube info I took the motor out and soldered the wires.

The controller will flash a red LED 1 to 9 times indication what type of fault is stopping the slide. Mine usually gives a 9 after a heavy, windy thunderstorm (hall power short to ground). Manual override gets it to move again. After a couple days with the slide out, the water in the connector drys out and all is well until there is another storm with the slide out. One of the days I pull the connector out and coat it with silicone grease. Attached is the Schwintek trouble shooting guide <http://www.amlrv.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Schwintek-Manual-override.pdf>

Slide out

Ours does not have any such thing as to tell us any error messages or lights that will come on

The MyLCI app has a lot of troubleshooting info.

If it is a Schwintek in-wall slide system, it will have a controller somewhere. Some are under the bed, some in overhead compartments, but most are in a storage compartment under the slide.
