Not familiar with the setup, but I'm curious. This coach has 3 different $1000. controllers to make the slide out work?


Or could you be talking about something much more inexpensive, like a relay?

Good deal. Besides the dealer, try to google the part number, or try this if you're feeling lucky;

If it's under warranty, why not just take it to the dealer and let them install it?

Well DUH, I just finally opened the manual and it states that the Slides will NOT work if engine is running, must be a safety thing. With that being said, then it may be a restriction issue. I think I have to bring it in to a professional.
Thanks

Have gone out side and looked under it to see if anything is loose or in the way. I once had a metal arm that held wire up, it came loose and almost got bent when closing the slide.

a. how old are the batteries? Do you see any corrosion on the terminals or ground straps?

b. disconnecting shore power, then re-connecting it made the slide work? That sounds like a connection issue. Is the SP converter cable 10 years old?

c. do me (us)f a favor and remove the wall switch that actuates the slide. Remove the wires from the spades and see whether one is a lot easier to remove than the others. Connect them up again and see if there's a change.

I'm not convinced that your controller is the problem, because the symptoms seem to keep jumping around.

Just a though but I had the same sound, expereince once. My leveler was on a 3" wood block and the shaking from the washer/dryer caused it to slip off. One spring came loose and wow, the noise all that made when it hit the bottom of the coach and threw the wood piece up into the coach was scarrrry. Might check your jacks to be sure they are all OK

I had an issue with my slide retracting on its own as well. PowerGear did replace the bad components and pay for labor even though I was out of warranty. The "move on its own" is a big safety issue and you should ask that your issue be reviewed up the chain of command. I did have to file a complaint with NHTSA before they would take my issue seriously, however if you ask for the escalation of your issue you might be able to avoid that.
