Slideout problems

I hav a 2004 Condor by R Vision. The Main slide work intermittently. It will retract all the time but will not extend all the time.The two rear slides have no problems at all.

I replaced th house battery and the rig is constantly hooked to shore power. Could I have a problem whit battery charging?

My Bounder has two rocker switches. Recently one slide was intermittent, so I replaced the switch and all is well. If you have the same, you could try cleaning the contacts.

The switches in my coach are.... Not high quality.. Eitehr

I have an "emergency" switch for two slides..

But one thing you can do is disable power to the switches (Remove the center wire) and operate them 40-100 times.. then re-connect and see if they work better.. Sometimes.. it helps (I've had it work twice so far)

Many systems are maxing out the switch's amperage rating and the switch's do not last very long. Reverse the wiring connections on the switch and if it now extends OK but has a problem retracting; it is the switch.
