Sounds like the circuit breaker is tripping. If so, there's a few things it could be. Motor going bad, gear box dragging, rams dragging, slide dragging on something.

Electric or hydraulic? If electric ensure the battery is very good condition. Might try the boost switch to couple the house and chassis batteries together to see if it makes a difference.

Vsheetz.. Electric ,and the Batteries are one yr old and good. were is the Boost switch. there is 3 slide out and only one does this!

Jesilvas. If the circuit breaker is tripping would you not have to manualy re-set it? All we usually do is just keep mashing the switch to keep it going.

Most of these circuits work under the principal of current limitation. If the voltage supplied is low then the current level will increase shutting down the circuit. Also if the slide is binding the motor will draw more current shutting down the circuit. Have your batteries load tested , clean all battery connections including ground connections to the frame. Check to make sure the slide is going in/out square and use what ever dry lubrication your manufacture recommends. If it is only stalling on the outward move you may also have a problem with slide toppers sticking.

It is quite possible that it is the switch itself. I trouble shot everything else and in the end it was the switch.

Boost switch is located usually at the drivers area. If yours is Ford chassis, on the dash.

Biggest slide has the problem, right? Requires biggest power to move it. Battery may have enough to move smaller slides.

CB is probably auto-reset type.

Anything that does not collect dirt. They make a dry silicone spray which is recommend for slides and jacks. Blaster 11 oz. Dry Lube Silicone Lubricant-16-SL-THD at The Home Depot
