Rear slide 31sa

Just took delivery on our 2013 Allegro 31SA. The rear slide (stateroom) seems to be struggling. This is the electric one. Is this usual? Any suggestions?

This is a brand new model and I have one ordered. But the slides should be the same as the other Allegro models. You may get better results on the Tiffin forum.

It may sound that way especially if your batteries aren't fully charged and you are not on shore power. Next time, plug the coach in before you run the slides out. You did level it first, right?

they recomend you leave the engine running, or pluged into shore power, or run the generator. it will provide a little extra voltage to the slide motor, which by the way, the front one is hydraulic, the rear one isnt. The front seems to operate much easier, this is on the 36 LA which I would assume the rest are similar

When you say electric slide; do you mean the Swintec style slide, with the track on top and on the bottom of the slide walls?
They are different than anything I've seen before....a bit slow if that's what you're talking about.

I know when we test drove the 36LA, I was surprised that the front slide operated very smooth and quite, and the bedroom slide was very mechanical. the sales man said the front was hydraulalic and the rear was a worm gear type. which i would guess the front slide had pistons and the rear was possibly a worm gear type

The rear slide is not Swintec. I believe it is made by Lippert but check with Tiffin or check the tiffinrvnetwork.com site.

You should hear a ratcheting sound when it is all the way out or in. Perfectly normal, btw.

Schwintek is a Lippert product. I spelled it wrong the first time.

Lippert may own Schwintek but the slide does not have tracks on the side walls as you described. The hardware is all underneath the bed and hidden by the bed frame. I enjoyed exploring the area when I cat got himself stuck under there.
