Coachman trailer slide out noisy

I have a 2005 Coachman 29 KS single slide. It is very noisy when it goes out or comes in. Sounds like it is dragging or binding and it sounds like it is working very hard to move. Is there a way to lube it? Royboy

Sounds like it's time to lubricate the sliding rods. As with all moving mechanical parts, the general rule is they need to be lubricate. You can get a can of high temp lithium grease at walmart for $5 bucks.

If your unfamiliar with how to service a slideout mechanism, gets some help from someone who can help you properly lubricate all the moving parts, operate the slideout several times. Lubrication will work if you don't have hydrolic system. This will hopefully do the trick. If you still have trouble see the techs at Motorsports Land or Camping World. They can test your motor to see if it has been compromised.

Thanks for the help. I am going to take the couch apart and find the gear mechanism (not hydraulic) and lube the heck out of it. I will get the lube you mentioned from Camping World plus some slide lube spray for the seals.

Thanks for the response and have a great rest of the summer, Roy
