SOURCE: How can i access the drive unit for the bedroom slide on my 2009 Forest River Flagstaff Classic Super Lite FKBSS?

If the bed is on the slide, more than likely the mechanism is under it. If not then it should be outside in the under belly.
I would check for voltage at the switch first.

Control panel on cougar 2013 res327 will not activate slide outs but remote works

If the remote will open and close your slide, look for loose wiring on the control panel back side. Over time, these blade type connectors can get loose from traveling. Typically, the control panel will have some screws around the outer edge. Remove the screws but hold the panel in place, then once all screws are out, gently pull the panel away from the to first to look down inside and pretty pulling any more off.

Where is fuse/circuit breaker box on Forest River XLR Nitro 31 FQSL. Have power but slide outs don't work. and can't get inside living room/kitchen.

RV's often put fuses in strange places. I have a forest river but not this model. Check the inside fuse panel first. If you do not see any blown fuses there, check underneath the trailer for an inline fuse. I would call Forest River and/or your dealer if it isn't in one of those two spots.

We have electricity to operate the microwave and plugs but the lights are operating off of the batteries. Is this a converter problem? If so is it a fuse on the converter? Doesn't appear the aux...

The microwave and outlets are on a 115-120vAC source running through the breakers box. The lights are 12vDC running through the converter then to the fuse panel. Locate the inverter in the compartments up front, possibly behind a panel that can slide or screws to hold the panel. Depending on the Mfr if the inverter, you should see a blade style buss fuse on the side, typically near the 12vDC output. Use a multimeter to check for the 120vAC input and 12vDC output. AC power-yes and DC power-no, check the fuse, replace if necessary. If the fuse is good, the inverter has blown and needs to be replaced. If you have AC & DC power on the inverter, go to the batteries and check for voltage without the inverter supplying power. Pull the fuse off the inverter or switch the battery disconnect switch. If the batteries have little to no voltage, cells may be dead. Take the batteries to a local auto parts store to get checked to see if the battery needs a charge or replacement.

My slideout doesn't move, battery is new, changed inline fuse at battery, all other electrical seems to work

there is a momentary three way two pole rocker switch used to activate the linier motors that move the slide out. the most commin problem is they use a switch that dosen't have a high enough amp rating and the contacts burn out quickly. it is very importent to release the switch immediatly after the slide stops motion going in or out or these switches burn out very fast.

How do you locate an inline fuse?

Wiring diagrams are not available as the manufactures to not publish them. There will be a series of circuit breakers that control the slide, jacks and awning. The circuit breakers are small rectangle 12v breakers with a terminal stud on each end. Some are automatic reset and others have a small black button on the side that must be reset. On a motor coach you will find these in a storage compartment and they probably will not be labeled. On travel trailers they will be located near the front of the trailer and often times will be linked together with a copper bus bar. On 5th wheels they will be located in the front storage compartment close to the battery box. Follow the positive lead from the battery back and you should locate them relatively easy. Next, make sure the nuts on the terminals are tight and using a test light make sure that you have power to each terminal on each circuit breaker. If you do not have power to the output side of the breaker then it is bad and will need to be replaced. They are amp rated so make sure you replace the breaker with the proper amp rating. I.e, 30amp or 40amp. In some rare cases the inline circuit breaker for the jacks is relatively close to the jack behind where the switch is mounted.

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.

Slide will not go out

Have you determined if there is power at the switch. If there is not then there are usually inline circuit breakers to control the power for the slide. Some are automatic reset and others have a small black button on the side that must be reset. On a motor coach you will find these in a storage compartment and they probably will not be labeled.

Slide out won't move when switch is pressed

The slide system usually uses inline circuit breakers to control the power for the slide. Some are automatic reset and others have a small black button on the side that must be reset. On a motor coach you will find these in a storage compartment and they probably will not be labeled.

2011 fourwinds travel trailer wiring

The slides and power awning use inline circuit breakers due to the higher amp draw. These circuit breakers are typically located near the front of the unit. Sometimes in the storage compartment, on the inside of the tongue, behind the front cross member... Follow the positive battery cable back until you fond a series of rectangle boxes (small with a wire connected to each end). Some of these circuit breakers are automatic reset, others have a small black button on the side that will need to be pushed back in. You may also need to ensure that all of the terminal nuts are tight.
