2005 Jamboree GT Slide Operation

I noticed the other day that my bedroom slide does not close fully. Slide operates but it is a little sluggish and when closed, there is about a 1/2 gap out the outside of the coach.

Ive been searching the internet with little info found on exactly how my slide operates. My main question is based around the batteries. Would failing house batteries cause the slide motor to be sluggish? I do have to have the coach running in order to operate my slides. Engine battery is about a year old and I have no idea how old the house batteries are.

Low voltage to the motor can cause high amp draw and poor performance.

Thanks for the reply! Would the voltage be low from the house batteries or the chassis battery? I'm thinking my house batteries could be getting low but I have not had time to prove that theory yet.

If the motor is running, then the batteries are possibly combined electrically.

Is the slide partially out evenly or is one side flush and the other not?

Slide is partially out evenly. Top is in completely but bottom is out about a 1/2 inch.

For the last inch or so, it's like the slide has to go in and up a little to seal. It stops right before it lifts up. That is why I'm thinking it could be a battery not giving enough juice to the motor.
