Are your slides hydraulic or electric? If the former, check the fluid level.

Welcome to IRV2. Not sure what type of slide you have, but I had a similar issue with my rear slide. They are hydraulic slides and I had a bad solenoid that needed to be replaced. Once that was done I have not had any more issues with slide creep. Hope this helps.

I would "think" that perhaps a solenoid is not fully sealing.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I have HWH hydraulic slides and just had this problem fixed a couple of months ago. It was a leaking solenoid/valve which needed replacing.

As a suggestion, you might want to list the year, make and model of your rig in your signature line so that those who might be able to help can have a better idea of what kind of equipment we're discussing.

Best of luck.

Rick

Hey Rick, any idea about where to locate the solenoid/valve on the chassis?

Wish I could help but I think it's unique to the coach builder and I had mine replaced at a shop so didn't see where it was located.

On ours the pump, control box, all the solenoids are located under the entry steps on the right front. Our second step is hinged to gain access but also have some under chassis access.

If the solenoids are between the pump and hydraulic lines, are they all the same as far as flow rate?

If so, could two of them get switched in order to determine whether it's that?

Does changing one out cause air leaks that a DIYer can't fix?

They call it a transit brace. From Thor, it would have been 200$. Rv dealer had this one in stock. Generic. $40. Talked them into giving to me free by explaining the mh should have come with one.

I think the solenoids are the same, but switching might introduce air into the system. The hydraulic solenoids have a "T" handle on them to allow the user to manually move the slide in the event of a motor failure. This handle/valve should be closed, but not overtightened, which will ruin the seat. The "T" handle will be described in your manual if you have this type.
I mention this because the handle/valve might have been bumped accidentally, or vibrated loose.
