Transmission inhibit works in the opposite direction - can't put in gear if a slide is out.


Again, keep in mind that he had no Accessory light in the bedroom, and couldn't extend the bedroom.


I can't answer for the front slide, but I wired that back slide, and I can tell you that the Level, Air and Door LEDs are passthroughs with no effect on operation, neither in the OEM arrangement with PLCs, nor my relay solution. I did wire in everything, so shift inhibit is there, but it is an outgoing signal, not incoming.

So, all is good! There is a 15A Accessory resettable fuse in the chassis electrical center (generator bay) and it was about to fall out. Pushed in, and Chip now has usable slides!

Dateline Holbrook AZ (OK RV Park, it is OK!) - 555 or so miles today with errands, fuel runs and such. Tomorrow perhaps I can make it to OKlahoma!

Thanks Don and everyone else too who weighed in. I bought a cheapie multimeter at dead Sam in Flagstaff and we worked backwards from the purple connector to the breaker panel down below. The falling out auto reset breaker was almost too good to be true!

Great trouble shooting. Don Bradner is the most cooperative guy ever.

Chip, congrats on the new bird and glad the fix was simple.

That's the one. These long skinny CBs don't stay in like the old fashioned ones!
