Slide Moves out during travel

2003 Monaco Windsor with two slides on the driver's side. The front slide is pulled tight when I move it in but slides out about a quarter of an inch while travelling. How could I adjust it to keep it tight all of the time? Thanks in advance for any and all responses.

If it hydraulic check fluid level.

MIne started doing that last year, turned out to be that the hydraulic rams were going bad. Had them replaced all good now.

Had the same thing early this year. It was a hydraulic hose leaking. Pirtek came out and replaced the hose. Good to go.

Most front drivers side slides have a locking mechanism.

Some have stainless steel locking mechanisms that run the full height of the slide on each end. They are covered by black plastic covers. You can see them clearly when the slide is extended.

Other slide outs have locks that install inside the coach. They are long bars that clip on near the top of the slide and run the width of the coach.

If it is electric is there a lever to disengage the electric brake on the motor? Mine is in the storage compartment easy to bump it!

If itís hydraulic it could be the retract solenoid leaking but, it would also creep when stationary.
