We need to know if you have the hydraulic slide or the electric one.

If it is close to closed, the alignment pins on each side might need lubricating. That held mine from closing the last inch or so. Hopefully it will be that simple.

And welcome to the forum!! Like the others said, if you put your year and model of Alpine Coach in your "signature", that will help us evaluate your problems, as equipment changed from year to year.

If it is not catching on the alignment pin as Jim suggested you may need to re-sync the cylinders. Has a cylinder or hose been replaced recently? If so you may need to run through the procedure described here. Although this describes a room extension the generator slide uses the same setup.

Not sure how it could happen but make sure nothing/something has gotten in the slide rails and jammed the rams.....

Tech at our local RV repair shop says it's an adjustment that they can fix for us. Also, does anyone know where we can get a hub cap for our 2003 Alpine 36 ft. coach.

Front or rear? Front can be purchased at Flying J and other truck stops. They are cheap. Measure the diameter, and check if you need one with 4 clips or 5 clips. (Spacing on the wheel.)

The rear is another story. I know the source for the 2004 rear hubcap, but not the 2003. They bolt on. Mine has one bolt in the middle holding it on. Other hubcaps mount on the wheel studs. Sorry, but I don't have a picture of it.

Unless they changed mid year, the front caps are 4-slot and the rear caps bolt on to the lugs [10 lugs]. Havent tried to find the rear hubs, 4-slot front caps can be harder to find, vs 5-slots. Fianlly found mine at the Iowa 80 truck/chrome shop--they are on-line too. They are less than $10 each--suggest you get a couple spares.

At the time (probably 5 years ago) Flying J had both the 4 clip and the 5 clip types.

....last few years, 4-slots seem to be hard to find anywhere.

I ordered three stainless ones from these folk:

4 Notch Front Hub Cap Chrome and Stainless Steel - Raney's Truck Parts

Keep a spare for when I lose another one.
