Bedroom slide drifts in

Since we've been parked in an area with high winds recently, we notice that when the wind hits the driver's side of the coach, the bedroom slide "scootches" in just a bit... i.e. about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch, just enough to feel air come through the top. We just bring the slide in a bit and extend it all the way and then it's fine... until the next big wind. I guess it's not a serious problem but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

Gator, we had the same problem with our front slide last year. The bottom would slowly creep in about 1/2 inch or so. The problem was a faulty solenoid in the HWH system, letting hydraulic pressure relax and let the slide drift in. It's the first thing I would change -- the solenoids for the rear slide. They're located on the HWH hydraulic pump, and are not difficult or expensive to change, but if you haven't done it before, you might want a tech to do it.

Bedroom slide drifts in

We thought we had the same problem with our 2006 MDTS, but we think we didn't have the slide out far enough. After making sure the slide is out all the way, we haven't had the problem again.
