Help! On the road slide issue

Does anyone know the location of slide controller on a voltage V3005

One side is giving me a problem. Tried resetting synch of motors and it made it worse. Out in the boonies with my wife and I and may need to manually close slide.

Mine are located on the ceiling of baggage compartment and one is on ceiling in the front compartment above hydraulic pump for level up. Yours may be different but look in those spots.

You will probably have to do an override on the controller. Push the small button 6x and hold on the 7th until lights start flashing.

Good luck to you. I know the frustration. Mine had been to dealer 4x for slide issues. Seem to be good now finally.

Good deal. Lubricating those slide mechanisms makes a world of difference too.

Living room slide on the left side it would not come in at the same rate as the right side so then I tried to sync the motors and it made it really worse I thenpushed on the outside as my wife actuated the switch The slide went in but on the side I was pushing it was jerky and appeared to be something really wrong

Help! On the road slide issue

Just arrived home traveling back from sandpoint Idaho. 942 miles. Will check controller first. Any suggestions would be great. Have warranty on rv but need this thing up and running for the last weekend of September. We use our unit two to three weekends a month. As I have mentioned I lube slide based on lip pert video more than once a month. We started to notice left side of living room starting to be several inches behind the right side( looking at recliner unit) so when we landed last nite thought synching of motors was issue. Watched lippert video where you extend slide fully than bring it back in 8 to 10 inches and repeat that 3 times to reset motors. Well on the third time the left side stalled out. Whoa. No visible damage to track. This morning I pushed on funky side while my wife activated slide switch. The side I pushed was slow to start and jerky all the way in. Controller? Bad motor. Will check for codes

Sounds like the one side my have jumped a tooth on the gear rack and is running in and out misaligned. ?? If that were the case it wont synchronize using the controller. Did you hear a pop at anytime when moving in or out? Take a good look at all the rollers as well.. one other thing, check slide floor underneath for swelling due to water intrusion.

All of the rollers look good. I lube those as well. No pops. If it has jumped a tooth how can I resolve that issue? Thanks!!!
