Recently purchasesd 2008 Tropical with three slides Two of the three are not flush with the side of the coach on the bottom. When they are sucked up as far as they go the top is flush and the bottoms stick out about 1/2 inch. After driving for a short time the bottom of the slides will move out to about 1 1/2 inches.Since National went basnkrupt there is no help there. Is this a job that can be done at home or is there special tools that are required?

root, the slideout system (HWH, Powergear or Atwood) should still have a warranty that covers a problem like you have. It sounds like you may have an HWH system with a bad solenoid valve. HWH has a three year warranty and most all RV repairs facilities has a working relationship with HWH. I recommend you get a shop to diagnose and help you out with correcting the problem under the slideout system manufacturer. Good luck and keep us posted.

Mike and Amy-Thanks for the input. The paperwork that came with the coach pertaining to the slides came from RBW Industries. I contacted them and they did not think the installed slides are theirs. I have been unable to locate a nameplate to determine whose slides I have installed. Will crawl around tomorrow in an attempt to find a name plate. Will also check with service organization for repairs.

POWERGEAR has a brake / lock lever on the motor, if it is not on your slide room can move out slightly.
