'09 Magna again

Does anyone know why the drivers side living room slide requires the ignition to be on to open or close it but not the passenger side one? Salesman didn't seem to know till he tried it. We didn't try the other slides either.

On my 08 the slides are operated by either the front or rear control panel and both panels are turned on or off by the key in each panel. The ignition key has no effect on the operation. I would ask them to make sure it is working correctly.

Yep, requires a key in the switch too, rig was plugged in so it shouldn't be a battery problem! At least I hope not with 4 AGM 8D batteries at over $500 each!

I'll have it checked out I guess. Another question on the list!

Louie and Gary are both stand up guys and have a good reputation for doing the right thing. Tell them what your concerns are and I know they will make it right for you.

I agree after meeting both of them and I know Damon from previous Newmar experience! Plus there are good reviews here and on their site.
So far we're just in kind of a holding pattern waiting for final word on the financing. But Joseph said we were "eminently qualified" for the loan in an email today. Now just need the rates and payments. We are, however reserving the right, to pay it off if we want.
You know, you have to prove you don't need a loan to get a loan!

We do not need ignition key on to move any of the 4 slides as long as we are plugged in. Even on inverter it will work, although I prefer not to.

Must vary between year and model. Our 04 Allure with two Driver Side slides, requires the key to be in the ignition, and turned on. We also only operate the slides with a window open, and usually have the engine running. Though with full 50 Amp service, I will sometimes close them before doing final disconnect of the power. Especially if getting an early AM start from a park.

I wonder if they treat the Driver side different then the Passenger, to avoid mistakes of opening a slide into the street? (Like a kid playing with buttons.)

Best as you sort out the new ride!

our 09 magna doesn't need the key in the ignition for the slides, when we park the first thing we do before we shut off the engine is level, then shut off the engine and open a couple windows, pop the slides and satellite. Always works but never with the ignition key on.

08 Affinity

On my 08 Affinity: Suncoast Designers defogged several windows, and when all done couldn't get any of the slides to close since last Friday - batteries good, fluid level good. I had to send a mobile RV tec. He said he jumped the solenoids to get the slides to retract. So, it looks like I have some electrical issues. Anyone venture out to guess??

Our CC manual recommends that the main motor be on when you operate the slides. Our slides will not move at all if the ignition key is not turned on.
