Hi,

I have a 2004 Winnebago Adventurer and it does the same thing but on the Living room slide.

I called HWH and they said that happens somtimes due to high heat. The told me toopen and then retract the slide and hold the button at least 3 seconds after it closes. I did that and it has helped a lot.

All Summer it only went out once and not as far as the first time. Hope this answrs your question and kf you need some further info I would suggestg you call HWH.

If your talking about a non-slideout exterior wall? you probably have a case of "delamination", usually caused by water encroachment, causing the interior wood to rot and glue to release. NOT GOOD. The wall may eventually crack.

LOnestar,

If he had delamination it wouldn't only be during the heat of the day and would be there all the time.

What he is talking about is a hydraulic slideout which sometimes tend to creep out due to expansion of hydraulic fluid or not closing it properly.

Enjoy!
