creeping slide

I have 4 slides on my coach. One of the sldes (the large one) will creep out in one of the corners after it has been closed up and sitting for several days. If not attended to, it will continue to creep out to about 5 inches.

I had the problem addressed at camping world a year ago but it is still happening. Has anyone had this problem and does anyone know what causes it to happen?

Do you have one switch for all 4 slides? Or 1 switch for each slide?

I experience the same situation with the living room slide on our two slide MH, although not to the extent as the OP. I have power clamp locks at the top of the slide but the bottom will sag out after being stored for two weeks or so. I believe that it is a HWH hydraulic system. I have separate controls for each slide. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Suggest you check the seals on your HWH slide solenoid.

is this a hwh system? what did camping world do to repair the problem? did they replace the extend solenoid? this is the only thing that will let a slide creep out unless you have an external leak.

What kind of mh do you have. Are they hydraulic or electric slides. If hydraulic it could be a ram leaking past it's seals or system is not holding pressure due to a leak. It should not creep out

Also if it's hydraulic have you checked the fluid levels in the reservoir?

i have the same thing the hydraulic cl. on the pump is bad so they say to get both the in and out cl/realys that well fix it if you look at your hydraulic pump they look small cans with 2 wires coming out of them they well bee 2 sets for each room look up your system on there website to fond out what set you need and what room it is and what styli A or B slide out you have after you find that out call them and get the parts no tools needed to install you can do it by hand

Is it a lippert setup you have if it is it will be the hydraulic ram the seals in it are leaking. You will have to take the ram out and contact lippert for seals or replace the ram. I had this happen on mine

Follow up on my HWH slide system sagging out. I replaced the extend solenoid as other posters had done and it solved my problem. Not a difficult changeout either.
