In‐Wall Electric Slide out System
The In‐Wall electric slide out system is used in the upstairs portion of the RV, typically a bedroom slide out. All slide outs are operated at the central monitor panel shown below. This panel will be found relatively close to the entry door of the RV in a cabinet designed to house this panel. The slide out system should never be used for anything other purpose other than extending and retracting the slide out room itself. To use the system for any reason other than what it is designed for may result in death, serious injury or damage to the coach.
Operating Your In‐Wall Slide-out System
- Level the RV.
- Verify the battery is fully charged.
- Press and hold the room’s switch in the “OUT” position until the room is fully extended and stops moving.
- Release the switch, this will lock the room in the “OUT” position.
Retracting Your In‐Wall Electric Slideout
- Verify the battery is fully charged.
- Press and hold the room’s switch in the “IN” position until the room is fully retracted and stops moving.
- Release the switch, this will lock the room in the “IN” position.
It is important to continue to press the slideout switch for a few seconds after the room is fully extended until the motor shuts off. The control will sense the room has stopped and shut the motor off automatically.
In‐Wall Electric Slide-out Controller Overview
- Status LEDs: 2 LEDs, 1 green and 1 red are provided to indicate the current controller status and faults.
- Mode Button: Used to engage the electronic manual override.
- Power Connection: 12V DC input. Unit will operate from 8V DC to 18V DC.
- Switch Connection: Spade connection for the switch wiring.
- Motor 1 Connector: Power and encoder input for motor 1.
- Motor 2 Connector: Power and encoder input for motor 2.
In‐Wall Electric Slide out Controller Connections
- Connections & Motor Harness
NOTE: Motor harnesses have Molex connectors at the controller and a molded connector at the motor end (2 images shown above). Wire colors match with color codes on the control board. It does not matter which motor is 1 or 2.

In‐Wall Electric Slide out Motor and Harnesses Check for proper connections between the motors and harnesses. Visually inspect the exposed harnesses to ensure they are not pinched or damaged.
Note: Ribs on motor connector lineup with notch inside of female connector on the wiring harness. Color codes on wires also match (black to black, red to red, etc.).Adjusting / Resynchronizing the In‐Wall Electric Slide out Motors
- Run the slide out room all the way out.
NOTE: Keep the switch pressed until the motors shut down on their own.
- Bring the slideout back in 1‐2 inches.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 until both motors shut down at the same time.
NOTE: It can take 3 or more attempts to successfully re‐sync the room.
- Run the slide out all the way out.
NOTE: Keep the switch pressed until the motors shut down on their own. Fully retract the slide out again. When both motors shut down at the same time at full extension and full retraction, the room is properly synced. If they do not shut down at the same time, repeat the process until they do.
In‐Wall Electric Slide out Troubleshooting
The electric slide-out requires a minimum of a 30‐amp circuit breaker. Check the 12‐volt distribution center for blown circuit breakers and replace any if necessary. If the circuit breaker blows immediately upon replacement, there is a problem with the wiring to slide out the controller. Check outside the RV for obstructions. Check inside the RV for any obstructions. Also, check for smaller objects that may be wedged under the floor or in the sides of unit. Remove any obstructions that exist. Check the sides of the slide room for any dirt or debris. Small dirt clumps or metal shavings can cause the spur gear to bind up and stop the slide out from moving. Use an air compressor or a dry brush to remove any dirt or debris from the rack before attempting to use the slide out again. During operation when an error occurs, the board will use the LEDs to indicate where the problem exists (shown below).
In‐Wall Electric Slide out Troubleshooting (Continued)
For motor-specific faults, the green LED will blink 1 time for motor 1, and 2 times for motor 2. The red LED will blink 2 to 9 times depending on the error code. When an error code is present, the board needs to be reset. Energizing the slide-out switch resets the board. Energize the slide-out switch again for normal operation. For motor-specific faults, the green LED will blink 1 time for motor 1, and 2 times for motor 2. The red LED will blink 2 to 9 times depending on the error code.

In‐Wall Electric Slide out Electronic Manual Override
- Press the mode button on the controller six times and hold on the seventh for five seconds to enter electronic manual override mode.
- Use the slideout switch to move both motors in or out. Note: Over‐current and short-circuit detection are still enabled. Electronic manual override provides 12‐volt directly to both motors.
- To exit this mode, push and hold the mode button until the LEDs begin to blink simultaneously. Exiting the override mode resets the motor positions which will require you to have to re‐sync the motors. Note: During this override procedure the motors are not synced. Visually watch the room, if one side is moving noticeably slower than the other (or not at all) then immediately stop and use the Motor Disengagement Procedure covered below.
In‐Wall Electric Motor Disengagement Procedure
- Remove retention screws from the motor, located near the top of each vertical column on the outside of the coach.
- Locate motor.
- Pull the motor up until disengaged. A flathead screwdriver can be used to pry the motor up.
- Reinstall the motor retention screw to hold motor in place or remove the motor.
In‐Wall Electric Slide out Low Voltage
The slide-out controller can operate the room with as little as 8 volts. However, at these lower voltages, the amperage requirement is greater. Check the voltage at the controller. If the battery is low, it needs to be charged or the unit should be plugged into shore power (or generator), if equipped.
In‐Wall Electric Slideout Motor Direction Switches
The motor direction switches are used to change the direction of the individual motors. When running the slide-out a room in or out and one side goes in and the other side goes out, then there is a problem in the wiring. The motor direction switches can be used to correct this problem. The left switch controls motor 2 and the right switch controls motor 1. If motor 1 is going in the wrong direction, then change switch 1’s position. If motor 2 is going in the wrong direction, change switch 2’s position. The motor direction switches can also be used to change the direction of the slide-out switch. If the room extends when the slide-out switch is moved to the in position, its direction can be reversed by moving both switch 1 and switch 2 to their opposite positions. This feature can be used if it is more convenient to change the motor direction switches than to rewire the slide-out switch.
