Howdy and welcome to the forum! Yes, it is possible to overload your storage compartments; you might check your manual to see if the load limits are listed. Other than that, maybe it's just the cold weather!

It could be because the R.V. is not level.
We are talking about a slide out are we not?
Another thing, are you connected to elect.?
If not, then maybe your battery's are getting low.
Just a thought.

Hi and

x2 on the advice above

Is your slide hydraulic or electric, if hydraulic check your fluid level and valve operation. Look for leaks.

I agree with all the above as well. The slides will not work fast and cold can affect the movementas well. More than likely as posted above.

Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the bunch here! My first thought on the slide-out problem is that you're trying to run it out without being plugged into shore power. That would definitely cause the slow movement if the batteries are not fully charged. You might want to post future questions over in the appropriate areas of the forum for better results. Not too many folks hang out here. Good luck & God bless!
