front side slipping while driving

HI,

Our Curb side slide out is slipping about 4 inches when we drive down the road, such that the bottom sticks out 3 or maybe 4 inches and the top is still against the side of the coach. When I stop , I can just pull the slide in again, and it stays in for awhile, but given a bump or two and its sticking out again. It never goes beyond 4 inches out and is not a hazard at present, just an annoyance.

Is there a way to "tighten" the system so it doesn't slip?

cheers
geo

Is this operated by a motor or is it hydraulic? Makes a big difference.

sorry, I should have added that... it's electric motor driven.

Look at the motor and see if it has a lever on the back end. If so there should be a label showing which direction is LOCK. If not in LOCK move the lever to that position. In the Unlock position the slide can be moved manually with a wrench and can also move during travel.

If the lever is in the Lock position, the electrical lock has broken internally. Contact me directly rbdtanasi at yahoo dot com and I will send you details on how to fix this without having to replace the motor and save big $$$. The motor is most likely made by Power Gear and they will not even talk to owners, only dealers. I replaced the lock on mine for $135 rather than buying a new motor for $700.
