Slide-out issues on 2006 Sightseer 30B

I recently noticed that the slideout on our RV is not retracting all the way in or extending all the way out on the end towards the front of the RV. After operating the slideout, there is a green led that blinks six times in a row then stops and repeats near the buttons used to operate the slideout on the kwikee control panel. Can you help me begin to diagnose this issue? Help! :-)

Also I have a saftey question related to this slideout issue: When the slideout has been retracted as far as it will go in, (even though the "front end" of the slide is approx. 1.5" short of fully retracted, is it safe the drive the RV? Will the slideout extend out away from the RV on its own when driving the RV and making turns, etc. Thanks

Hello and We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
Do you by chance have the owners manual on the slideout system? If so, it should have instructions on how to sync the motors of the slideout. The key pad (touch pad) needs to be removed and on the back the motors can be setup to run independent and once you have it "timed" correctly you can st the "sync" into the controller.
If you do not have the manual, pull the key pad off the wall and give us the mfg. model and serial numbers.

Welcome, fellow newbie

I asked a similar question about the slide drifting after having been retracted. A member gave good advice when he suggested that I place a 2x4 board between the lip of the slide and the wall of the MH, in order that it keep the slide from drifting out while driving.

Obviously, we want to put a post-it note or similar that tells us to remove the board before extending the slide....but we're safe to drive.

Mike, does this change anything about what you were thinking I should do? "The 6 flashing lights indicate a stall to the rear actuator, possibly a low voltage or wiring issue to that motor on that ram assembly."

Thanks!

You need to start by clearing the fault, set the timing (equal spacing front and rear), and reset controller to start with. Once you have this done check operation to see if there is a problem. If so, follow diagnostic flow chart. Otherwise, do not fix, if it is not broke.

Turned out that motor was not working properly and had to replace the motor/rail assembly on that one side. Also replaced some plastic bushings that had supposedly fallen apart prior to the issue, thus causing the issue. It was recomended that we replace to plastic bushings on the other side in the near future BEFORE the same thing happens on the other side... Work fine now, $100 later. Oh, and there's like six different motors on the 2006 Sightseer, took third try to get the correct one.... good luck!

As an added note for safety my 2008 Sightseer came with a slide lock bar that is placed like the 2x4 but is adjustable for tension. My slide control key is tethered to this bar to be sure it is out when operating the slides😃
