Slideout on drivers side rear

I read the thread on the problem with the plastic gear in the gear box for the drivers side rear slide. I think my problem is different then that, my slide goes out but when it's time to bring it in, the front corner ( or corner closest to the front of the coach). Won't come in, after a little muscle or just steady pressure it will straighten out and come in as normal. This is on a 2005 HR Imperial.

I worked on the slide out driver side rear for a few weeks, almost to the point of taking in for the experts to work on. My slide out went in, but the last inch or so, the slideout shifted, and backside would not go all the way in. Drove me crazy trying to figure it out. One day, I pulled the bed out getting ready to dive further in, I noticed something that didn't look right, sitting sort of on the floor against the wall. I climbed in to check it out. can you guess what it was. No, it was my wife's slipper. JHC, how could that be, I showed my wife, she said thanks, I lost that. So, first ask your wife if she is missing any slippers, then go from there.

Just an update on this thread, after taking the motor home into the shop, it was diagnosed to have a circuit board going bad. The only problem is that after contacting Monaco, they no longer make this board. Does anyone know were I can locate a new one?

As to the Op's question wish I could help, but I would call the manufacture of the slide mechanism and see what they can do.

As an update to the slide, the shop found that it was not a circuit board, but they found that one of the slide rollers had come out of the guide rail. Just as a warning to anyone, I had a lot of weight in the cupboard, a lot I mean maybe 150 lbs, with bottle water, soft drinks and cases of pet food. I feel that all this weight was to much to pull when bring in the slide.

Good luck telling the wife she can't carry that much when you go out. Let me know how that works out.
