Living Room lags at end of pushout

In my 2007 Excel 30rso I have an issue with the long dining living Rm slide only during extensions. Both of the smaller work greats do the long slide retracts fine. In the last six inches of extension it will sometimes stop. If we retract it about six inches and extend again itís fine. Iíve checked the hydulaic fluid and it seems fine. Other times it extends just fine. When it does stop it seems like it adjusts for a unevenness in the extension.

Does it seem like an adjustment or failing motor on that one slide or something else? Presently in Fairbanks, Ak on a trip.

Fred, that sounds like a weird one to me. It sounds like maybe the room is getting out of time and possibly getting cocked. I can only suggest that your get under the rig and check the gears and rail for missing or damaged teeth. I'd also watch the ram and slide mechanism while your bride operates the slide in and out. The issue may be visible when that's being done. NOTE: There's a tendency for one to put their fingers/hand on things when we are diagnosing things. Don't do it. The slide mechanism is very powerful and you can get hurt badly very easily! Be careful. Please let us know what you find.

Thanks Tom. Do you know at what point the fluid in the tank should be checked, slides in or out? Also does the extension work from a hydrplyic motor or a ram driven system?

The instructions to check hydraulic fluid level on my '13 Excel is to retract all jacks, kitchen and dining slides, and extend bedroom slide.

What doc said...on checking fluid level. The rooms are on hydraulic cylinders (one per slide room on your model), so it controls both retract and extend. Pinion gears and toothed runners welded to the bottom of the slide rams are what "time" the slide room, so the room goes in and out at the same time or keeping it "true". The photo on the right is off my old Excel (electric) but the set up is not exact but similar.

Maybe lack of power from poor connection suggest you check all and grounds, once had similar and found loose connections and a fuse with loose studs.
