You're question is unclear. I understand the slide won't extend and that the power to it is good. You say that it make a gear noise. Are you saying that you hear the motor turning? If so it's a mechanical issue.

It doesn’t move (electric slides) makes a sound like the gears aren’t syncing together. We tried opening on solar/ battery and generator power. Still get the same ratching sound of an impact wrench. Where is the motor and what does it look like?

We had the same issue with our kitchen slide. 2019 MH 331RL. Motor was shot, had to hire RV tech to replace it during one of our long vacations. RV tech guy said we were lucky to have the motor last as long as it did. Usually needs replacement ever 2 years.

Hope you can get a diagnosis and fixed soon.

Smile Slide wonít open

Thank you to those who have responded. It warmed up to 55 and the slide worked. Who knows why it decided to start working!
