2011 areolite Electrical

Hi, new member here. I bought my 2011 areolight roughyl 2yrs ago. Model 255ks-sl
Anyways, my rear bedroom slideout quit working. Iíve done some troubleshooting and the motor and switch are good but no power to the switch. Breaker and fuse is good. I assume is possibly a relay or something of that nature. I canít find an electrical diagram anywhere. If someone could point me in the direction of one, that would be fantastic. Thanks

There should be a slide controller somewhere. Probably behind a panel under the fridge or somewhere near the electrical panel. That is the first place to start trouble shooting. Don't know anything about a 2011 version but current controllers have fault lights on them to tell you what the problem is.

That is literally the scariest slide out I have ever seen, I would be scared to sleep in it.

It does but itís sturdy. I was a littler nervous on it when I first picked it up but it holds me and my 130lb dog no problem. No movement at all

Did you check the continuity of the wires between the controller and the switch?
