Slideout doesn't work

Yes we're brand new owners of a 2006 Itasca Navion, but we tried to pay attention when the tech guy gave us a quick trip thru the units systems before we took it home.. When we got there, we were unable to extend the slider. Yes, the house batteries are charged, although our books say this unit is powered by the car battery. So, the inside retaining strap isn't connected, and the car battery is good. Bue when when push the switch, nothing happens. Any suggestions? Iv'e put in two calls to the dealer with no response (Colton RV in Buffalo).

Make sure your Salesman switch is on and the ignition off. At least that's how mine works. I'm not familiar with the chassis battery powering the slides, but I learn something everyday. I assume there is not a safety bar installed.

With Navion, switch on, engine running, and parking brake engaged and it should work.

With Fleetwood Icon it's the same : engine running, parking brake must be on.

Try just the key in the on position. We where told that the engine had to be running but I tried it with just the key in the off position, it worked just fine.

The older models can work without the engine running I believe, but you probably want the engine running. The electric motors that run the slides draw a load of current and it's best to be sure that you don't drain the battery and have enough power to run the slide out. I have a newer model and they actually require the engine to be running before they will work.

Transmission in Park and emergency brake set.
Not sure if the engine should be running or not.

Slider doesn't work

My thanks to cmb0268 for THE FIX. He suggested applying parking brake. Worked like a charm!! Wonder why that info isn't in any of the manuals we received.

PS Can't we reply to these posts directly instead of like this?

Glad I helped :-) Was guessing because ours is a little different than the '06s. There's a key switch to enable the slide switch, and there's no safety strap on the slide. Makes me wonder what they changed so that you don't need the safety strap?

We all want to know the fix. Others may have similar problem.

On his coach the parking brake needs to be applied. I never would have got that one since I have a Workhorse Chassis. So many different systems.

On my 2011 the parking brake needs to be set and the ignition switch needs to be on. No need to start engine if batteries are fully charged.

I guess they are all wired different. My "parking brake" applies itself in park. In fact it is park. However the slides will not work if the ignition is on, and if the ignition is off it would be in park. So, some coaches have to have the ignition on (OP) and some have to have the ignition off (mine) so who decides this stuff. Having the "parking brake on" means different things depending on what kind if coach you have, and when it was made. Just when I think I have it all figured out, I find out something else I don't know. What a learning experience this forum is.
