2010 Ventana 4333 Slideout Issue Help

I am having an interesting issue that i have researched and attempted every possible fix/modification listed in the Newmar forums and from Newmar helpdesk. My kitchen slide on the PS with the sink and refrigerator is on a single motor drop down system.

It works fine extending. It works fine once up the ramp and on flat ground. The problem resides with starting to retract and going up the ramp the motor amps out and I have to continually push the switch to get it up to floor level.

1.) I have solid 12v and no issues with electrical as this has been checked repeatedly via amp meter. This happens no matter plugged in to 50A, using genset, or only on battery power.It is NOT a bad ground, or power/electrical issue.

2.) All bolts have been tightened on motor and guides screws, etc.

3.) Trying to use Living room slide switch as a replacement does not resolve.

I cleaned the rollers and noticed that they do not roll going up they somewhat drag but roll coming down and I have tried to spray lubricant on bearing to help and that worked to increase roll but still drags on floor- so this could be an issue?

My Norcold refrigerator weight has basically doubled after I replaced with a new JC Refrigeration Amish built helium unit. Would the added weight be too much for the motor to move the slide? The problem timing coincides with the appearance of the issue.

Would increasing the tension on the adjuster at the controller partially resolve?

Any ideas on what else I can try as my next step is probably schedule to have rollers replaced.

Thank you for any ideas.

I think that might be the problem. Have a couple of friends push on slide as you are bringing it in. If it doesn't stall out you will have to adjust that little pressure switch. From what I have read you make very small adjustments.
I have a 2010 DS 4333, the fridge is not on the slide and no ramp on that side. Good luck

As things get older we need a boost at times.
The pot on the slide control needs a small adjustment to increase the current to the motor so it can get slide up your ramp.
Its also a good time to check ramp to make sure there is no screws or metal plated loose on ramp than increase the pot just in small increments until slide moves up ramp and to flat floor, may want to look at rollers also nothing loose there either.
This link will lead you to all slide information.
