My first thought is a failed circuit breaker under the front of the trailer. These systems use an inline circuit breaker. It is a small rectangle box with a wire connected to each end of it. They are typically located under the front frame close to or on the tongue of the trailer. If you have a test light you need to see if power is passing through the circuit breaker. Some have a very small black reset button on them. Others are designed to automatically reset, if they do not then they have to be replaced. If this is not the problem then I would check the switch next. After that I would check the motor.

2008 coachman SoA 29rks exterior slide. Right above the slideout is a metal rail that has torn the fiberglass side wall. What is this rail for? Not the roof gutter, but right below that.

Without a photo, this is just a guess. Could it be the rail to hook a slide topper on that perhaps a previous owner removed? Perhaps the slide topper roller caught on something, tore the fiberglass, and so the topper was removed. You need to be sure the torn fiberglass is repaired, any water that enters that spot could cause much damage.

No owners manual with my 2014 Freedom Elite - do you have to have plugged in to extend slide out?

If the battery is good or you are hooked to the tow vehicle the slide will deploy electrically. No need to be plugged in.

How to adjust rv slide

Check to ensure that it's not the cabinets or the frame they are mounted on that hasn't warped or shifted. If the camper is a 2015 take that puppy back to the dealership and have them do it. There shouldn't be a charge, especially if the issue is a broken or damaged part that is still under warranty!

What causes the slideout not extend completely on one side

More information would be needed, i.e. yea, manufacturer, model and type of slide. But there could be many reasons, the slide mechanism may out of alignment, there may be something interfering with the slide so it will not extend. Or it could be simple such as a piece of carpet jamming on the inside!

We would need to know more about where you notice the issue!

Find another dealer...those guys are f***tards! That slide should be level and even when in OR out. Bent slide mechanism, mal-adjusted runners maybe. Have it checked out by someone who knows what they are doing.

Water can leak in FAR from where you see the damage. It runs downhill finding a low spot to settle. I would re-caulk the whole RV, paying special attention to the roof. Spend the money on roof sealer if you have to. Silicone tube caulk is a temporary fix. To be done right, you disassemble joints/panels and use the ribbon/string caulk. More work but should last at least 5 years.

Sooner or later they ALL will spring a leak. Keeping up on inspection and re-sealing regularly will minimize the damage.

Where is the motor for the rear slide?

They are usually located below the floor and would be accessed from underneath the coach. But check the power from the switch before removing the motor as unless you are near the ocean chances are that the motor is good. Usually the switch or the breaker fails.

Thank you i know where is my fuse box but supposed to having fuse around the batterie in front of trailor and i cant found the motor for the slide out

In most cases there will be two terminal circuit breakers, not fuses, located behind the front cross frame support or on the inside of the frame. The slide motor will be located between the two main frame beams toward the opposite side of the slide. Find the slide mechanism that usually has the gear track on the bottom of it. Follow that from the slide to the center of the under belly of the coach. You should find the motor there.
