Slide Issue

I have a 2007 Winnebago Tour. Opposing slides in the living room. The galley side slide sometimes doesn't retract when I push the button. I can hear the motor activating but the slide doesn't move. After waiting a few minutes and pushing and holding the button for about 4 or 5 seconds, the slide begins to move. Any idea on why this is? I'm a bit nervous that it's going to quit on me at an inopportune moment (like checkout time at the RV resort).

What type of slide system do you have?

Does this happen on this slide with either deploying, retracting or both?

Does it have an electric lock?

Here's where I would start:
If you have a rack & pinion system it may be that the 4 or 5 seconds your waiting is because you could have a stripped or rounded off pinion gear. During that 4 or 5 seconds is the time it takes for it to rotate around and grab good teeth on the pinion gear and get the slide going.

The next time it is deployed, I'd crawl under the chassis and carefully inspect that entire system, inspecting the gears, possibly loose wires, and of the mechanicals being loose or anything else visibly that could be causing this.

It's a hydraulic system. Only happens when retracting. Doesn't happen all the time... Roughly 50-60% of the time. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll crawl under and see what I can see.
