2011 Tiffin Phaeton Slide out opening unevenly

Any help with my rear passenger bedroom slide out? When I open and close it starts to close for about 6 inches or so then the front side stops while the rear continues. I have to cycle it in and out a few times to get it opened. when the travel on the rear stops the front continues until it has reached its full open. The same when I close. Any help? Thanks!

I would suggest you first make sure there is nothing binding it. Give it a good lube.

If those don't do it, check for low voltage at the motor.

Here are a few documents I have gathered on troubleshooting, maintaining these slides.

It looks like the troubleshooting manual is too big to post here. PM me with your email if you want that document.

It sounds like your slide needs to be resynced. With the slide full in, start it out for about two inches, stop and bring it back in holding the button until all sounds from the motors stop. Repeat this about four or five times to get the slides back in sync.

My issue is that the P/S back slide front closes at the bottom and not at the top. The back part of the slide closes tight. Tried the synch several times but did not work. Behavior continues the same.
Any suggestions?
