Slideout Creep

I have a 2011 Thor 4 winds Hurricane and have noticed that recently when I extend the large living / dining room slideout the lower edge (floor level) starts to creep in. Any suggestions

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.
Depending of the slide out system, if electric, the brake may be failing. If hydraulic, the valve on the manifold may be partially manually open. make sure all the valves are manually closed. If they are then the seals in the valve are failing. One other hydraulic system possibility is air in the lines. This would only occur if you have had to add fluid to the system.
Give us more information and background and we may be able to identify the actual problem. Thanks.

Hi Thanks for the information. The slideout is hydraulic and worked fine until a couple of days ago. The slide goes out fine but after 5 minutes or so the bottom edge of the slide has rotated inwards (into the motor home) and has to be pushed out via the extend switch for the slideout. There dosnt appear to be any leakage of hydraulic fluid from the system. I spoke to a tech support guy at Thore industries and he indicated that it was the internal brake on the hydraulic pump motor.
