KItchen Slide Popping Out few Inches

Recently had my 2005 Providence into the dealer for a kitchen slide that would pop out after driving about 2 inches on bottom top seeds correctly. Dealer made some adjustments and said if it happens again may need a new motor. Has anyone had this problem? If so is a new motor the solution? Thx

I have the same year Providence and have had the same problem. No, the motor is not bad and does not need to be replaced. When you can, crawl under the slide and find the motor. On the gear end, there is a rubber boot, covering the brake. Squeeze the the rubber, you can feel the brake, as a toggle. Push it which ever way it will go and the brake should then engage. I've done that a couple of times and the slide will not ease out while traveling. I don't know why the brake comes unlocked but it does. I haven't had anymore trouble for several years now.

I Cant Wait To Try This---Thanks

Thanks for the info I cant wait to get out to my RV and try try it. I have a 2004 Dutchstar so I hope the motor is the same one that you guys have had a problem with on your Providence units. I have wondered why this problem only existed on my kitchen slide. I figured it was due to the weight of the slide and the fact that there is only one slide lock bar one this slide. The other two each have two slide lock bars. I hope this is the answer and thank you guys again.

2008 Winnebago and the long slide does the same thing. I just reset the brake lock and hope that takes care of it on the next time out. I have the Kwikee/Powergear electric motors.

There is a manual override on the control panel. I can manually push the in/out buttons and bring the slide in. I have gotten in the habit of checking the slide at each stop and if it is out a little I'll just go push a button and cinch up that end. There is a little pin hole on the control panel that can be pushed with a toothpick. The lights start blinking and then the in and out buttons can be used accordingly. Hope you have the same slides by PowerGear/Kwikee, but the info is still good for others.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
