Slide out creep

Hello all, Im a little concerned about my large slide out as the bottom of the slide creeps out about 1 to 1-1/2 when we travel. At a rest stop or somewhere similar we can press the in button and it will retract. The top seems to stay where its supposed to. What adjustment should I be looking at to correct this issue? Its a 2005 Allegro 32BA. Thanks for any assistance with this.

Your RV looks just like my '02 Winnie. I have the HWH hydraulic system and mine did somewhat like yours is doing but the bedroom slide. And mine it creeped in when I was parked. I took it in for factory service ( ripped off) at Winnebago Service in Forest City, IA. They told me that they had to replace 2 hydraulic solenoids, that one was bad but both were required to be changed. WRONG. That's only required by HWH when it's under warranty...they handed me an owners sheet which said that IN BOLD PRINT.

After the new parts were installed, instead of slowly creeping IN when parked for days or weeks, now it would creep OUT as I drove. Grrrrr. Took a year to 18 months for it to stop doing that. And I'm a full time RV'er.

What I learned is that creep out is caused by air left in the system and that it'll slowly work it's way back to the tank and to not worry about it. At least for my system.

What you could do is use the device that ratchets the slide in and attach it just before you drive away. That should hold the slide in place. Check basement compartments for that device...usually on the wall.

If you do have the HWH system, contact AZPete here on the forum...he works with us here on our HWH stuff because he works for them. Great guy. Doesn't charge for the advice.

Your problem is the slide retract solenoid on the HWH hydraulic pump is bleeding off pressure to keep the slide closed. The only way to repair it is to replace the solenoid. This is not at all unusual for a 2005 coach. You can download a system diagram online and order a replacement solenoid. Yours should be a "625" system.

When I had to get mine repaired earlier this year, HWH was out of the replacement solenoids. I was able to get a pair from Stuart's Service in Elkhart, IN. They were easy to deal with over the phone and shipping was prompt. This was several months ago so they may be out as well:

I replaced both the extend and retract solenoids just to be safe. The independent RV tech that did mine said that both were pretty full of crud. I was going to keep one as a spare but after finding that out I had him replace both. It was a little over an hour's labor.

Thanks for all the great info, my previous MH had the HWH system and I can relate to those repairs. This one, however, is an Atwood electric system and is a little different than what Im used to so Im learning as I go. Any insight on that system would also be appreciated, I know I should have mentioned that in my initial post, I apologize for that.

Electric slide motors normally have brakes on the end of the motor that prevents any movement in the slide after power is shut off. The "at rest" position of the brake is "locked". Applying power releases the brake and operates the motor. Sounds like the brake is not properly locking up.
