2021 Aria 4000 - PS Slide faulting out

Hello group,

The PS slide keeps faulting out - "motor to controller short"

Anyone experienced it? Is this a thing on these large ( i think 26 feet ) slides?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Is this a Schwintec slide? If yes there are hundreds of posts with the problems is full wall slides.

We have a 2021 Aria. No problems with slides other than forgot trash can behind my seat when extending. Crushed the can and dinette slide got out of sink. Easy to rectify. Maybe contact controller folks? 2021 Thor will not care.

Is it working?
Mine has a perpetual ground fault but always works.

It doesn't - moves an inch or so each way and stops.
Resetting the fault sometimes works, but its super unpredictable

So, it appears I might have figured it out.

It needed a good lube ( it hasn't been used in a while) and few extend - retract cycles.
I also need to remember to " re-sync" each time.

Another thing I did - relocated the conotroller onto the side frame brace so that it is easier to look at and reset if there's a need .
