Slide out creeps out

Well I was driving the other day and noticed that wind noise was pretty bad and thought my window was open. Nope the slide was out one or two inches. I pulled over and it was coming in but slipping. When I got back and parked the slide still has a tiny gap. Anyone have this happen? If so what was the fix?

Your slide motor has a lock on it which might need to be engaged. It is on the end of the slide motor with a rubber cover on it. Twist it to the lock position. Never done it myself but know it happens from posts on this forum.

An older post by the OP indicated they have electric slides.
Hereís a manual that explains the brake lever procedure on page 3.

Then you most likely are down fluid. Is there any sign of a leak.

If you have hydraulic slides, then you probably have a retract solenoid valve leaking fluid. The HWH systems use hydraulic pressure to keep the slides in and one creeping out is a sign of a leaking valve.

Yes that was for the bedroom slide. The current issue is with the living room slide. Iíll check the fluid.

My Itasca Horizon had HWH hydraulic slides, 4, and the reservoir, pump and manifold was under the front entrance steps. As stated one of the solenoids is leaking so you need to isolate which one. Each slide has 2, 1 extend, 1 retract. When you determine which set goes to which side, look on the back side of the solenoids and you will see wires attaching and in the middle either a 1/4" nut or a flip lever. Flip the lever ( or turn the nut not more than 1/2 turn and activate the slide extend/retract a few times. It could be debris in the solenoid valve causing the leak. If not the the valve will have to replaced. My 2 main living area slides had slide locks so see if you have and use them until you can get it fixed.

Download the HWH trouble shooting guide for your system and go through that thoroughly. Read all the instructions before starting the trouble shooting.

You could also have blow buy in one of your hydraulic cylinders. Do they go out and in correctly?
