2001 Winnebago Journey slide issue

Retract button does not retract. Hear clicking. Batteries show 13.1 for house and 13.8 for engine. I am plugged into shore power. Have tried MOM switch and retract without success.

While waiting for a more expert response, check all electrical connections, especially ground to frame. if you have a multimeter, ensure you have adequate voltage at the pump and not just go by what is read at the One Place Panel.

It does sound like an electrical problem, but the difficulties I have had so far have be hydraulic so I can't offer much more.

Road tech came out - big hammer - it's the motor.

Thanks for response.

This was not your problem, but on my Itaska 33V, we had a leak and discovered that the high pressure hydraulic line was about 8 inches too long and when it was installed, they just pushed the excess into a crack to hold it and it eventually wore through with the vibration. A 25 cent plastic wire tire would have prevented it. They are rough to change as it is under the bed which has to be removed.

Journey Slide Issue

Home now. Found an electric motor shop that will look at my HWH motor. FYI - no help from calls to Winnebago Ind nor HWH. HWH does not take calls, will call back, 10 hours so far.
I am unclear as to how to remove the motor. The relays are banded to the motor and the motor shows no mounting screws. I plan to try the two small headed screws I see at back of motor, they must be very long and go through the entire motor.

Thanks again.
