Well Lippert got me again.
A couple of years ago my left side Schwintek motor failed (Broken wires on the motor) so I eventually replaced both motors (miss diagnosed and replaced the wrong motor the first time, so replaced the other motor with new as was not going to put a old / used motor in)
Well in the last few moves now the right side has been acting up.
This time I know now better how to diagnose which motor is causing the problem.
Sure enough removed the motor and found a broken wire.
I replaced both motors since the broken wire issue is a design issue that has been corrected on newer model motors and while I had things apart and was motivated I wanted to longtime fix.
The wiring on my 2014 model Schwintek motors attaches directly to the motors circuit board, that is where the wires break. The redesign has a plastic connector / support at the motors circuit board connection that supports the wires and hopefully prevents them from breaking.
Tested operation and all is good in Redwood Land again.

Rob,
Glad you got it taken care of. Lippert put the new, updated motor in ours and it has worked great--no issues. Ours was spinning in the casing. We thought their customer service was amazing.

Rob, what are the symptoms? Intermittent?

Yep, intermittent operation of one side.
When the wires break the motors get out of sync, I have found the side that stops is not the one with the broken wire.
The broken wire has been on the other side so the one that with the broken wire keeps moving but stops sending out pulses so the other side stops as it thinks it is out of sync and stops.
