slide out issues

I have a 2006 Country Coach with a slide out problem. While traveling down the road my main/large slide out slides out like 1 or 2 inches. I have to push the retract button to bring it back in. Has anybody else had this problem? It doesn't seem to get any worse if I just leave it out that 1 inch. I new to RV'ing so I'm not sure if this is a major problem.

Congratulations on your new to you coach and I am sure you will find this website and invaluable tool to help you with your new lifestyle.
Your system is probably an HWH brand which is of good quality. Find the pump and be sure that the "T" handles on the back side of the electrical solenoids on the pump manifold are all closed clockwise. If they are you either have air in the system that can be purged out or the valve is not seating well and pressure is escaping through them and will have to be replaced. Make sure the reservoir tank is full when the rooms are in and if you have hydraulic leveling jacks, that they are up. Let us know what you find and we can instruct you on how to purge the system for air and any contaminates that might be causing you a problem if need be.

If hydraulic then before checking the fluid level check your owner's guide as on CC's some slides shoudl be retracted and some shoudl be extended before checking/topping off with fluid. On our '06 Allure we have 1 hydraulic slide (the other 3 are electric) and it has to be extended when checking.

FYI -- we had a similar problem and it was low on fluid.

If electric, check the position on the motor for the brake as it can be moved fairly easily. When that happens on a CC it will usually result in just the bottom of the slide moving out a bit.

Check the position of the brake onthe power gear motor. If pushed accidently it woudl release which could allow the slide to creep out.

It's on the slide motor itself. It's a lever about 2-inches long. The motor, typically will be mounted in the center of the shaft that drives the pinion gears to move the rack in and out. Should be able to see it up under the outside of the slide.

I am having the exact same problem. I am very new to Rv'ing with levelers and slides. How do I check the hydraulic level? and technique to checking fluid? I have a 1995 Itasca Suncruiser with HWH 200 Series jacks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
