THOR #19140
New to RVing

Hello, We just took our new to us 2017 Thor Genesis for a 2 night spin. Everything works great except (why is there always one of those?)the side slideout won't budge. We were still able to use and enjoy the MH but if that happened to the back slide out we wouldn't be able to sleep. Any tricks we should know about to keep the slide out motors happy?

first welcome to the forum.

You might want to find the slide controller and see if it is plugged in, first and if it is if it flashing any codes.

Welcome aboard!
The slide controller should be the item you're looking for.
But first: find some Youtube videos about overriding that controller with some creative button-pushing...
Good luck!

If I remember correctly you count the red flashes between the green flashes. The code is labelled on the controller itself.

There are some You Tube videos that have Schwintek troubleshooting. I would attach a link or two but since they start with political campaign adds I will neither view nor post the links the videos.

Welcome to the forum. Is there a dealer that you purchased it from that you can call?
