Bedroom Slideout - '06 Inspire

We have a 2006 CC Inspire, 36'. The right side bedroom (cabinet) slide is straining more and more when retracting in. Access to the mechanism isn't obvious. The shear pin, hopefully, will give before anything serious develops, but I would like to fix the problem before that. Are there any suggestions please?

I'm not sure of your definition of straining, but here is something that might help to ease the strain on the motor, open a window when retracting the room, letting the air out works for us.. 06 inspire 40 footer Geno series #51651..If the room is tilting from top to bottom/ if the bottom come in first then top, this is a pretty good indicator you have a air pocket build up inside the coach, hope this help...

Most slides that are flush floor do come in bottom first, then top, whether the door is open or not. There are seals around the slide out the let the air out once you start moving the slide.

Straining could be low voltage, bad switch, no lubrication, or just your imagination. No way of knowing without doing an amp draw on the circuit to see what it is using in terms of electricity.

You are right about the flush floor being bottom first then top, however ours has an extreme tilt when we forget to open a window, Once the window is open the top move inward on it's own to align itself for retracting the rest of the way in, I'm not sure if we have different types of seals, but we were told to do this when we first purchased the coach in 06. Best of luck

I have experimented with the windows open and it makes no difference. I can get to the bottom of the slide (on the outside of the coach) when it's open and have looked under there for some clue as to why it is so sluggish going in but see nothing unusual. The very slowest point is when the bottom rises and the top hangs back - probably as it moves up a ramp to get in. Once level, it moves easily the rest of the way to fully closed.

Have you cleaned that ramp part of the floor with a vacuum cleaner the spray it with teflon dry spray
