Slide out motor

I have a 2017 Miramar 37.1. With three slides.

Does anyone know if all three slide motors are the same or different?

If the same does anyone know what motor it is?

Thank you

Thank you
All 6 motors on our Citation are the same

At least 1 of your motors should be VERY easy to get out
Lots of YouTube videoS

Do you have slide problems or just being proactive?

Thanks. How do you know what slide motor is the number one motor vs the number two motor?

The slide controller determines the motor # .
Post #1 of this thread has a picture of the controller, most of the time it's located in a storage bin under the slide.

Thanks. I was just trying to figure out. If control says motor two, which one is it, for example facing the bed from the inside of the motor home , is the motor on the left motor one? and the motor on the right the number two motor?

Unplug one, try to move the slide and you'll know for sure.

It is the controller that determines #1 or #2. So the motor cable that is plugged into the left side of the controller is #1. Your friendly floor worker should who installed the controller SHOULD made the left motor (as you face the controller) the #1 motor, but I wouldn't bet on it. Techs often swap the cables when trouble shooting. Nothing wrong with that as long as you resinc the motors before moving the slide.
