Cameo slide out issue

Hi All I have a 2008 Cameo F35Sb3 and today one of my slide-outs would not function properly when trying to bring it in. It would move 6 inches then stop I would wait 10 sec and it would again move about 6 inches, after about three moves like this it comes all way in. tried this several times and same results. BTW goes out with no issues. So here are a couple of questions: Is this a bad power connection or is the slide-out motor starting to go. Where would the motor be on a Cameo underneath it is all sealed down there so cannot see.? it is the doorside slide out Would you access it from underneath or inside under the dinning and seating area? thanks for any reponses. cheers Peter

It is easier for the slide to go out, than to bring it in. My thought, thing to check, is the circuit breaker, which often has auto reset. It would act like you mention, when under load. These breakers weaken over time, and yours may need to be replaced. It should be close to the battery, likely just inside the basement on the wall.

Follow the positive battery cable at battery, see where it goes. The circuit breaker usually within 3' or so.

Should be another same breaker for the landing gear. Just as a test, you could switch them. Should be same amp.

Could be your battery isn't fully charged.

If you look underneath the RV on the side with the slide problem.You should see a zipper panel. If you unzip the panel,you will see the slide motor for that slide. But like everyone has said, check out the electrical part first.

Peter,
you do not write if its a just stop and pause ( which indicates an electical issue ) or a mechanical issue
Oir 09 Cameo started the pause issue on doorside slide which indicated motor overload. By extending it an inch then bringing it back in we could eventually close the slide. Eventually the rear gear in the zipper panel mentioned in previous post stripped.
Age and increased friction was the cause as well as poor gear alignment.
Look at these previous threads I made for a cure. Pm me for more

rbw slideout gears ( orphan ) gears again
rbw sideout crown gears stripping
