When I took it off the wall a few ounces of water sloshed out. The box was installed with the open end (where the wires come out) facing up. Is this how Thor installs electrical equipment upside down?
If any one has the same RV could you check and see how the control box is set up in the storage area.
I am going to call Lippert this AM for help.
I just had this happen to me Tuesday morning. Lippert will tell you they have no control over how the manufacturer wires it so will only give you basic trouble shooting ideas.
I tried the bypass sequence which is listed on the box of pressing 6 times and holding the 7th, both a red and green light flash and supposedly you can pull or put the slide out. That was of no use and did not work. Lippert told me I could jumper 12 v to the pin at the bottom depending on what you want Ret or EXT and run the slide. I had disconnected those wires in anticipation of doing that but had reattached them and tried the slide and it worked . I took it by a service center and they thought maybe disconnecting the wires reset the box. I don't know but it hasn't done it again yet.
After getting slide in the jacks wouldn't go down, will be interesting to see if you get the same sequence.
PS: the controller never gave me any error lights either.
