Slides are slowing?

My living room and bedroom slides are starting to to slow and even struggle to go in and out. Has anyone had this happen and what could this mean?

Try them with the generator running or on shore power just to be sure it's not a coach batteries issue.

2 suggestions. Check battery terminals for any corrosion. Even a little can cause your problems. The other suggestion is to load check the batteries. How old are they?

It to see how the batteries are holding a charge. In their 4 year life, if the water level ever got down below the plates inside, it will significantly shorten their life. Also depleting the charge over and over will shorten their life. I would take the batteries out and take them to auto zone or equiv. They will load test them. They may need to be replaced.

Before you unhook any cables, be sure to take plenty of pictures so you get the cables back on exactly how they came off.

Try doing the slides with the engine running, they draw a lot of power. Our mfg says the engine should be running.



4 year old batteries are probably due for replacement also assuming they are wet cell.

Winnebago says to run the engine for the jack and slides. It gives quite a bit more voltage than just the batteries alone. It will help the slide motors last longer. As others have said, your batteries are maybe weak.
