I had an issue with my motordome shop I just finished. No matter what the left gate would not open. Even though it has a test mode. I verified everything was working and wired correctly.
I grounded the transistor tab and the gate operated. This narrowed it down to on the board.
After searching online I found a lot of mention of the issues. Even one person that had three all with he same issue. But no solution offered.

The solution is for you to install a jumper in JW8. I used a 0 ohm resistor. I found the right gate (JW10) had its jumper installed. And the schematic is genric so it shows it open.

So that's it. Verify by grounding the tab on Q9. Then install jumper JW8.

Must have been missed like the factory flasher rewire.

Yes...its very possible that someone exchanged the logic board at some point in the game's life. We run into the PCB's having one wrong jumper, etc, every now and then. It is possible the factory missed it, but I would have thought the vendor may have noticed it or at least heard complaints about that gate! Good find though!!

Good point may be. Or could be missed like the add on wiring harness for the flashers.
I guess it's kind of weird I found a lot of people with a left gate issue. I hope people check these two jumpers before gettin frustrated.
