slide problem

Have a 2012 Forest River Sunseeker with 2 slides which have been working fine until today. Judt returned from a trip and the bedroom slidee will only open half way and stops. No grinding noise no odd noise at all just stops and wont fully open Tried several times and cant figure out why it wont open. Kitchen slide is working fine. Has anyone had similar problems or any ideas on what i might need to be looking for?

Try messing with the switch, it could be going out. Mine did that and I had to push real hard at the top of the switch or toggle it back and forth until it work. I ordered a new switch and works fine again.

You may want to look under bed for anything getting caught to stop movement of bed.
Most 12v motors need a good 12v to operate slides.

If you have slide toppers make sure that it is not in any way jammed and able to extend freely. It will stop your slide if jammed. Good luck. Let us know how you do.

Go to your favorite hardware store of mega mart and get a can of DRY silicone and spray all of your tracks down. This should be done once per year or as needed. Some times the tracks get stuck and a little lubricant can go a very long way. If you have a hydraulic leveling system you will also want to fully extend the unit and spray the poles on that. It is also good for door hinges and stabilizer jacks. Hope this helps.
