Generator slide not working

Went to slide the generator out like I have several times before and when I hit the switch, the motor makes noise but the slide does not more at all.

Any ideas? It is an 02 American Eagle.
Thanks,
Jake

Clear that up for me. Are you trying to slide your generator out or the slide for your unit using the generator? Thanks

I am trying to slide out the generator. The slide is on the front of the eagle. I get a clicking noise, but no movement. I have been doing a google search and came across a wander lodge forum and a guy has the same issue. Is the slide motor operated by air? Could I no have enough air in my system if that is the case?

Thanks,
J

Went out this morning and it opened as normal. Ghosts in the RV?

On my Mandalay, the generator slideout is on the same hydraulic system as the other slides and the jacks. If jacks were down and other slides were out, you could possibly run low on hydraulic fluid (which is ATF in my system), but that's just a thought. Were all other conditions the same between the two days?

Everything was totally the same. We did not move or change anything. Too strange.

I think mine is a hydraulic motor that moves the gen slide. Have you called Fleetwood?
