Slideout problem

Our 2003 Winnebago Brave 32V slideout seems to be creeping out. I have had it in storage for about a month and the sofa / dinette slideout has creeped out about 3 inches. What would be causing this and is there a way to fix it?

Thanks

Hydraulic operated.....
Solenoid valve leaking thru allowing pressure on piston to bleed off
Replace solenoid



Electric operated.....
Motor clutch/brake slipping
Adjust



As Alternative...
Slideout locking bars.
Commercially available/after market



DIY/Homemade

Thanks for the reply, I thought about cutting two 2x4s just was not sure where would be a good place to put them. Looks like they put them on the top of the slideout.

1" closet pole rod with rubber cups on each end


Cut to fit SNUG with the rubber caps in place


Place top/side....one on each end so equal pressure on slide out trim/frame and RV interior wall


Also place ribbon/post note on slide switch to REMOVE before extending

Slide movement is usually caused by air in the hyd system. Liquids cannot be compressed, air can be compressed.

HWH says to run the hydraulic motor a few seconds after the slide is closed, you will hear it begin to whine when pressure is built-up enough.
Always insure the hyd oil reservoir(never use hyd jack oil, only what is listed in the owner manual) is to the full mark when jacks and slide are retracted. If air is allowed into the system you must purge the air out by operating the jacks and slide until all air is removed, there is no bleed valve in the system. After each jack storage cycle top-off the hyd tank, repeat the process until no more oil is needed to maintain full.

Your HWH hydraulic slide system has extend solenoid and retract solenoid for each slide. The most likely problem is that your retract solenoid is leaking and not keeping pressure on the system to keep the slide closed. The solenoid can be easily replaced. My solenoids are located on the hydraulic reservoir. Jack solenoids on front and slide solenoids on rear. The primary challenge normally is to figure out which is the extend and which is the extract.

When replacing the solenoid save the old one and send it into HWH and they will rebuild it for less then $100 and send it back then you have a spare which is what i did on our 2005 journey
