I have an 06 dolphin 5342,and the living room slide just started creeping as we traveled from Ill.,to tx.Slide gear is RBW with Von Weise motors.No external brake on motor,or any levers to be found.I believe the motor alone should hold the slide.

Update to original post

RD2006 is right. Was out readying for a trip and went into the compartment where the slide motor is, IS NOT any sort of mechanical, electro-mechanical braking device visible on motor or reduction gear assembly. Motor is clearly visible, center of slide and has wire harness going in a smooth cylindrical housing with a larger cylindrical gear housing that bolts up to the large reduction gear on the slide mechanism. No switch, lever, or any other locking device here. Guess comments about motor being designed to hold the slide in are correct, or there is some kind of internal electric lock.

update again

As mentioned in prior post found no evidence of any lock on the slide motor or mechanism. Problem persisted and worried me. My solution was to take my old truck bed bar, the type used to secure loads in pickup bed from sliding, that has padded ends and snugs in place by turning bar to tighten, and cut it down to fit in the space between the slide and wall, snug it between the trim on slide out and outside wall. I place it down low near floor so no stress on middle of wall. So far has worked well.

As a safety precaution I take key out of slide switch and hook onto this bar, so I cannot forget it is in there and operate slide. Not sure motor would have power to damage wall, but don't want to find out!

Trode,on my 06 dolphin had the same problem.Slide motor does not have rubber boot,as others have described,but a metal cover on end of motor.I removed cover,and found electric brake.Removed motor,and replaced brake,problem solved.Motor is Von-Weise,brake is made by Stearns.
