You shouldn't need to find the controls to synchronize.
Extend the slide 3 to 5 inches, retract while being the button 3-5 seconds after completely sealed, repeat 3 to 5 times, then every time you extend/retract hold the button 3-5 seconds when completely in/out.

I have a different model TT, but my living room and kitchen slide controllers are in the entertainment center cabinet, bottom compartment, mounted on side wall.

Synchronizing the Slide-Out Motors

Motors and Harnesses
1. Check for proper connections between the motors and harnesses (Fig. 17).
2. Visually inspect the exposed harnesses to make sure they are not pinched or damaged.
Note: Ribs on motor connector line up with notch inside of female connector on wiring harness. Color
codes on wires also match (black to black, red to red, etc.).
Synchronizing the Slide-Out Motors
1. Fully extend the slide room using the switch. Keep the switch engaged until the motors shut down on
their own.
2. Retract the room 1-2 inches.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until both motors shut down at the same time. In many cases, two or three
repetitions are necessary to synchronize the system.
4. Fully extend the slide-out and keep the switch engaged until the motors shut down on their own.
Fully retract the slide-out, again keeping the switch engaged until the motors shut down on their own.
If both motors shut down at the same time at full extension and full retraction, the room is properly
synchronized. If they do not shut down at the same time, repeat the process until they do.
Extend and Retract Switch Connection
1. Rev. A - Rev. C1 Controllers: Common connection on controller goes to common connection on extend
and retract switch.
2. Rev. C2 and 8 amp Controllers: Extend and retract connections on the controller go to the extend and
retract terminals on the switch. Switch is powered by the OEM-supplied 12V DC power source.
Power and Ground Connections at The Controller
Power and ground connections are supplied to the controller through the spade terminals located on the
right-hand side of the controller (Figs. 2 and 5 - Power Connection). 12V DC is recommended. A 10 AWG wire
is the minimum size recommended. A 30 amp, OEM-supplied resetting or blade fuse is require

I know it's a small white box and I found the one for the bedroom but I need the location of the controllers that are in the living area were the fireplace is on one side and the dinette on the other side .

Bobby, check every cabinet in you TT. On mine they are not visible by opening the door. I had to literally stick my head into the cabinet to find them, mine are not in a very friendly location.

In my Sunset Trail, they are located in the entertainment center above the power distribution center. Behind the right hand cabinet door at the bottom is a panel. My controllers are behind that panel.

I will check there I have the one that the tv turn to the outside to . I looked everywhere by the fire place at the bottom in both doors and at the top by the radio cd player. . Did you have to cut the panel or was it already made to access. I think if I am correct my power distribution panel is under the drawer beneath the refrigerator. .

I have found them in different places on the same model of TT. All depends who is doing the install that day.

Check below your fuse/breaker panel. Is there a small wood panel there with a screw in each corner? That is finally where I found mine.

check for removable panels (screws) below your switches. The wiring will go to floor then branch out. Usually they put the 2 controllers in the same location. And usually right where the wiring should split to either slide.

However that would mean the installer has common sense....
