I've owned my alpine coach for a few years now and cant understand why my passenger side slide only goes out part way. There looks it could go out another 6 inches does any one know the reason for this? Is there a way to make it go the rest? Sorry, i did not say that it is the passenger bedroom slide.

I think all of us with that vanity slideout end up asking the same question. If you look behind the inside side paneling you'll observe that the slide operates on a scissors type mechanism. Since there isn't room to fit the slide with hydraulic rams like the opposite bed slideout, WRV used that scissors jack arrangement which also means that it can only go out as far as the compressed jack will allow. Wierd but that's the way they did it. It still makes for a fairly nice bedroom in my humble opinion. Enjoy
