I had the same problem with my '05 FDTS. I found a broken wire on the "extend/retract" switch under the console slide. Once I soldered it back into place things were fine.

John & Mary, I am glad someone wrote about the bar that is put down manually from the back of the generator, Mine is a 2005 and that is what I have. I feel better know, on the other hand I have checked every bolt & nut that hold the generator into the motorhome frame. That's not all bad either.

What kind of lubricant do you use on the Generator slide rollers? White lithium grease?

Rick Davis, nothing wrong in using the white lithium grease. I use an open gear lubricant which is pretty stick but does not get any worse with weather changes.It stays around a long time.I would use a little 3 in 1 oil on top the bearings and then put grease on the top of them and force it into the bearing with the palm of your hand. Home Depot, Lowes, etc. may carry but more than likely an Industrial Supply house.
