I would like to thank all those who have responded to my questions, everyone was very helpful. Here is an update: the dealer replaced all the seals on the slide that was leaking, we won't know if this resolved the problem until we head to Florida in January, praying for this issue to be resolved. As for the slide creeping out, the dealer still felt it was our fault for not having the slide locked, which I feel is incorrect. I called Winnebago and spoke with tech named Al, very knowledgeable gentleman, who said I need to have the dealer replace the cylinoid, that the slide should not creep out even if slide not locked. Now a new issue with dead house batteries, so the motorhome going back to dealer Monday, for these items to be addressed and the slide issue to be readdressed. We will post the outcome, thanks again.

Hang in there

Getting all the bugs worked out of a new coach can really be frustrating but "this too shall pass" You made a good decision to buy a Winnie and they'll stand behind you as you get early failures fixed and get to know all of the systems in the coach yourself so you'll feel more in control when something goes wrong.

Keep us posted.

re slides

I too have an Itasca 2010 Ellipse. Bought it new in Arizona last January and have almost 16,000 miles on it. No problem with the slides whatsoever. Our model, the BD floor plan, has power locks for the slides. The controls are located right beside the in and out controls for the slides, the fold-down panel by the pilot's right knee. There is also a lock on the dash that turns on or off the slide locks. I would think you have the same feature?

Looking for a bit of help. Am new to our 2003 Pace Arrow 37A. When demo-ed all worked well. Got home and rear slide doesn't work. Called, dealer says controll boards are in electrical box in bedroom, mounted on the inside wall. That I will likely find loose wire. It did get bouunced to death, like me, on the Pennsylvania Toll Road. I mean beat to death. Anyone had this and know where to reach?
