Pace Arrow questions

I just got a 2001 pace arrow. Could anyone tell me how to change the oil?

Also, we have a slide out that isn't going out easily. Needs someone inside pushing on it. Any info on what we should look for to fix would be great.

Oil change is no different than a car. Crawl underneath, slide a container under the oil pan, and remove the drain plug. Remove the spin onoil filter and replace with anew one. Add new oil via the filler tube up top.

Slide drag: Look for something wedged underneath, or perhaps loose rubber seals along the top, sides or bottom. Also, have you checked battery voltage? It may simply be that the motor is starved for electrical power. Does the slide operate faster when the coach is plugged to shore power? Or if the engine is running?

Good info - thanks. But how much oil? And how do I know specifically what filter? The Owners Manual has no such info that I can find.

The slider - we'll check for something in the way. Not the battery because the other slide out works perfectly.

Welcome!

More info on your PA would be good. Model, chassis, engine, etc. You will see that many here put this info in their signature at the bottom.

This allows folks to best help you.

As for the slow slide, if like my 2002 PA main living slide the engine has to be running, parking brake on, and batteries good and charged else it will need a push assist. My slide runs off the chassis battery. The it on shore power or generator so the converter is powering as well. Also ensure the slide rails are well lubricated. My main slide moves very slowly even when working correctly.

As for one slide working and another not, the large main slide requires a lot more from the batteries than the bedroom slide.
