2011 Freedom Spirit(by Thor) Slide only goes in

My Freedom Spirit slide control system has partially stopped working. It will move in, but not out. I thought it was the Slide Room Controller under the counter, but when I replaced it today, it was still only coming in. I can move the top wire plug to the relay position next to it and it will then come out when I press In on the switch.

I know the motor works.
I know the Slide Room controller works.

Any thoughts as to what else could be causing this? physical switch? Cabling?

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you already figured things out. I don’t know your coach/trailer specifics but a 2011 potentially uses a Schwintek style slide system. From your description it sounds like the switch has failed in the momentary position that controls the 12vdc connection to the controller “out/extend” terminal. I assume the wires you are exchanging to get "out" to work are on the wall switch? Attaching a basic schematic of a typical Schwintek slide system in case this is what you have.
