Drivers side slide operation on Allegro RED

In my Allegro RED, the drivers side slides (both the living room & bedroom) only work when the ignition key is on. That seems backwards to me, like the lockout is connected to the wrong pole of the relay. How does yours work?

Also, my drivers side bedroom side makes loud ratcheting noises when it reaches the limit of travel. All the others just stop & you can hear the pump groaning for a second before you can release the button. Again, what does yours do?

Yeah, normal for a Tiffin. My 2013 works exactly the same way, key on, slides work, and the ratcheting you hear is also normal at the end of the electric slideout stroke in the bedroom. I think the slide motor is too powerful, and that ratcheting prevents it from damaging the slide mechanism by over-driving it at the end of the stroke. We had a 40' 2008 Allegro Bus that worked exactly the same way. Wamma try another quirk, turn your ignition switch to accessory and see what works. Just sort of depends on who wired that one. I have 3 slides that operate on Acc, and one that doesn't.

Mine is the same. The two slides on the DS are electric and require the key to be on ACC in order to work while the two on the PS are hydraulic, no key required. The bedroom slide makes the noise when fully in and I immediately release the switch. I had to replace one motor with a broken gear already. You know you have broken the gear when the slide starts jerking and finally quits moving at all. So take care of that BR slide! Don't put heavy stuff in the under bed storage area.
