There is a microswitch under the bed that keeps it from putting the bed down if it thinks the slide has not been extended. You can lift the bed to either bend the tab that activates the switch, or bypass the switch. My bed did this the day we purchased our coach. We had camped across the street from the dealer so they sent a tech over and he fixed ours by bending the tab. But I didn’t see what he did.

I know I’ve read posts on this fix, but in my searching this morning can’t find the answer yet. I’ll keep searching and report back.

Searching the site for similar issues, some have also mentioned pinched wires and bad motors.

Found a little bit. The limit switch is at the top of the bed. I’ve read it’s on the right side but I swear the guy that repaired ours did so on the left side.

The switch has two yellow wires connected.

The folks I read about that bypassed the microswitch removed the two yellow wires and wired them together. This makes the bed think the slide is out all the time. So you’d have to be careful to not operate the slide with the bed in the wrong position.

I think there maybe two switches, one to indicate when the slide is out and another to determine the slide is in. The PowerGear slide controller at the foot of the bed is part of the system too, I’ve read.

I swear it took the tech 1 min or less to adjust the limit switch but I did not see what he did. I was holding the bed up and it was very heavy. Difficult for me to keep it from falling on the guy.

Here’s the post that I’m referring to. Read this one and the ones following. Hope it helps.

My wife reminded me this morning, one time this happened recently that the bed would not extend. She said we stood at the end of the bed and "bumped" it forward with our hips and this must have made the microswitch work because the bed started working with the control button again.
