EXPLAINATION OF NEWMAR SLIDE SYSTEMS
SLIDE OPERATIONS OF GAS COACH'S BAY STAR AND CANYON STAR ONLY.
We have some people that say they are becoming confused as to how to open and operate their slides questioning Newmar instructions in manuals or latest instructions on FULL WALL SLIDES.
The answers we will discuss are for Newmar slides
for Newmar people.
I WILL USE LINKS FROM PEOPLE'S POSTS THAT HAVE BEEN DEPLOYING SLIDES FOR MANY YEARS PAST.
Check the highlighted portions of posts to be linked.
There has never been a problem for opening slides from years back to 1995 if correctly done
, until the AUTO LEVEL shows up and the now new FULL WALL SLIDE coach's.
For years the proper way was by leveling each side rail of chassis
than deploying the slides, jacks lowered manually.
This method of deployment
of slides has not changed unless you have A FULL WALL SLIDE.
This would apply to a gas coach and DP coach after the DP coach dumped their air bags.
This would also apply too one to four slides only.
As of 10/8/14----- I NEEDED TO ADD THIS
for some people as to WHY THE DIFFERENCE
of deploying 1 TO 4 slides as compared to the FWS.
To add to all this we now have three jack leveling systems in the Newmar coach lineup. ---- HWH
And now we can add AUTO LEVEL
to all this mix.--HWH

After many discussions by owners and some with damage to slides
Newmar came up with this procedure to operate their FWS's.
The only problem with that is when do you deploy your FULL WALL SLIDE
and we have this to add to that
which some people have to sign off on when visiting the Newmar plant and receiving instructions for operating their FWS.
I think this answer high lighted
will point out why this is the thing to do for FWS.
We have some people that want to know why do I need to use MANUAL LOCK's,
its a no brainer when people have the AUTO LOCK's
they lock when you move in slide to store.
Here is a good reason to use your MANUAL LOCK's
its up to you if you use them and may suffer then consequences if not locked.
The question on using AUTO LEVEL
can be seen in some of the links of chassis' out of alignment in a four slide coach or one with a FWS its best to request a level site or level your coach manually
as explained how the jack systems work in links provided.
A interesting feature of AUTO LEVEL
is it can put on a show of how well it can twist your coach on a unleveled site pad
all you have to do is operate the auto button and go out side and watch how the jack's progress to ground and stop and how each jack will lift its part of coach and stop but after another one stops, says I have to trim a little more and lifts again and that is going to trigger another jack to do the same.
I have seen front wheels of the ground, which a normal operation can do, and also one side of rear duel off the ground in a depress area of pad, which is not good.
Auto Level may never find level and every now and than pop a jack up than the whole sequence may start again if the jack has any more lift left.
You do not need damage to your slides or your windshields using AUTO LEVEL.
To use Auto feature make sure your site is as level as possible.
