2016 Thor Axis 24.1 OH bed slide won't engage

I'm out with our 24.1 Thor Axis and we can't get the bed down. Parking brake is on, side slide is out, 40 amp fuse is good, RV is in park... I turn the key on and press the button and nothing...no click... nothing. It's in the full up position and the pins are pulled. It worked the last time we were out. Shore power is good and the batteries are good. The generic manual says nothing.

Any ideas? Is there a manual over ride?

The controller for the bunk is behind a false panel in the cabinet above the kitchen sink (I believe its on the left side of the cabinet).

Once you get there you can look at the lights on it to see what is wrong.

Thanks . I'm suspecting nice. I found droppings in that cabinet and wondered how they got in... I'll pull all the DVD and VCR stuff out and see if they chewed on the wires.

When you get a new RV, you are destined to discover everything about it. And... it's rarely the same problem from one camper to the next.

Check the voltage on the large red wire at the controller as it supplies power to the controller and the slide motors. It should have power anytime there is power to the coach (it also powers the motor's brakes)
