Hi,
Thanks for all the advice. We sort of found it. We ran a wire from the switch straight to the motor and it worked as it should. We split the actual wire about halfway and narrowed it down to the section from where it enters the ceiling to where it comes down beside the fridge. We pulled and pushed the wire trying to get slack and later realized this had apparently moved the wire from where it was touching metal (even though we didn’t see the actual spot). When we tried again, it worked as it should. Unfortunately, without pulling out the fridge or going into the actual ceiling, we didn’t truly solve the problem because it can later wiggle back to the same spot. However, I’m not ready to go into the ceiling or pull out the fridge at this point—especially not knowing which I need to do. The TT is about 4 years old so I’m surprised this happened (I shouldn’t be with other problems I’ve had with other trailers). At least i hope it works as it should for my vacation that is in a week.
Thanks again for the help!
Darryl

If you haven't cured it there is no reason for it not too do it again.

Knowing what it is, you can at least wiggle it again if you need to. Worst case you can always reverse the wiring at the motor like you did before to get the slide in. At least it’s not something you need to do often.
