Angry Jammed Slideout

I have a 2007 Country Coach 42' with 4 slides. The bedroom slide (passenger side) has jammed and I cannot move it in or out. The front of the slide (portion closest to passenger) is out about 4 inches and the rear of the slide has not moved. The entire slide is hopelessly wedged at an angle. I have even tried releasing the hydraulic pressure and using a wench to bring the coach in. No luck.

I need to take it to a knowledgeable HWH mechanic but before I can drive the coach, I need to get the slide out in. Can anyone help.

I have a friend who has a similiar problem. He called the manufacturer & they told him to have someone hold the button in the extend position while he pushes his body weight against the stuck end of the slideout. However it sounds like yours is wedged much worse than his was. His MH is a Beaver

You will have to relieve pressure off both pistons and then straighten out the slide out. You might be able to get enough people to push on one end. You might have to use a come-along if people cannot do it. This happened to my dad's Magna once time.

Jammed Slideout

I appreciate the input. I followed the Country Coach manual to release all the pressure in the hydraulics but could not push or pull hard enough to break it loose. I used a wench and tried to pull the slide back in per coach instructions. I put as much pressure on the system that I felt it could handle and it still would not budge. At this point I am waiting for HWH to call me back and maybe recommend something.

My dad had to use a couple of come-alongs; as he was not paying attentions as to what was happening and jammed his very tightly also.

Have you come up with a solution to move your slideout yet? If so how did you do it?
