Then he must see all the issues I donít. I deal with several brands every day that use the schwintek system and see VERY FEW failures.

If your slide is schwintek, that controller is there somewhere. Your “in command” will have a relay that applies 12VDC to the controller. Polarity determines which direction the motors turn.

Schwintek is used in Grand Designs Momentum, and it can be controlled from an app on a smart phone via “one touch” by LCI. Tiffen uses schwintek and can be controlled by a “spyder” system.

Take another look, that controller that I showed in the picture is what “controls” the movement of the slide. Only thing not showing in that picture is the 12VDC connections on the right side of the box.

You will have a cable that runs down the vertical surfaces on both sides of the slide. Common for the cables to go through the main floor near the slide wall and the controller will be mounted on the ceiling of the basement, or even in the front compartment depending on the actual layout of storage. We don’t sell Alpines so I can’t say exactly where it’s located, but I can assure you it is there somewhere. The schwintek system won’t operate without it.

Chuckster my Alpine has th LCI with the relays and circuit boards controls in the basement , that is what I used to override and bring the slide in to within a half inch of being full closed. I for some reason I can't get the picture to post.
This is ALL I FOUND there is not a control like your picture that I could find... When I get back I'll look everywhere for it and contact the dealer...

Then fully extend the slide. Using the buttons inside the coach:

Press “IN” for 1 second.
Press “OUT” until ALL noise stops
Press “IN” for 1 second
Press “OUT” until ALL noise stops
Press “IN” for 1 second
Press “OUT” until ALL noise stops

Try to retract slide.

Chuckster57 I'm sorry I thought you were referring to the leveling system . My bedroom slide has the gear set up like the
Schwinteck system BUT the only controller is the. iN-Command System I have pics of it but I can't get it to post with this message.
Google the iN.Command. I have pictures of the system in my profile.
Again I'm sorry Sir I know you are trying to help me and I keep leading you wrong...

Your not leading me wrong. I think if anything your not understanding what I am trying to tell you.

If the slide is indeed schwintek, it HAS TO HAVE the controller I showed in a previous post. The controller is what makes the slide work. The InCommand system is merely a different way to get the controller energized. In the end the CONTROLLER has to have 12VDC and a signal to tell the motors what direction to turn.

Your RV has the InCommand. Tiffen uses the Sdyder system. Grand design uses LCI one touch. In ALL cases the controller is present “somewhere” in the coach.
When you use either the remote or the buttons, it sends a signal (12V) to the “EXT” or “RET” contact telling the controller to turn the motors in a particular direction. At the end of travel, the CONTROLLER senses amp draw from each motor and shuts them off.

I think they may be “out of synch”, and if you read the PDF I linked, the instructions are there how to reset them. I’ve done it a number of times on several units. If they won’t “synch” then you really need to find the controller and look for a trouble code.

On my 2018 Alpine with the In Command system, we have the Schwintek slide in the bedroom. The controller chuckster57 is referring to is in the front storage compartment on the ceiling on ours.
