Renegade Classic 2024 Slide Problem

I FINALLY took delivery of my 2024 Classic in Indy and drove it home to NE Ohio today (and new to this forum as you will see this is my first post). Had to stop several times with the CS (passenger side) large slide starting to come out? Worse, only the front part of the slide (closest to the cab) was coming out and not the rear (by mid door entry). Since it was cock-eyed, we had to push and pull several times to help the slide go completely out before allowing it to come all the way in.

In speaking with the dealer's rep, come to find out Renegade apparently has had these problems since using this new slide? Basically, the motor used isn't strong enough for its brake to hold in the large slide by itself? I wasn't aware, but the DS (driver side) slide has their new hydraulic slide and can't understand why Renegade wouldn't just use this stronger slide system all the way around? After what I spent on this build, I'd would have gladly paid to have the option, especially knowing what I've experienced.

Anyone else experiencing this issue??

Man this isn't good to hear. Did they just change this on the 2024's? My 2023 XL just arrived to the local dealer

Not sure?

I'm sorry. I don't know if there was a change?

Today, I had additional problems with hydraulic leaks from the other slide. We then went on to lower the leveling stands ("elevator") to check to make sure they worked since the hydraulics were all the same cylinder. Fluid all over, blowing out the overflow? Then, the rear jack stuck and wouldn't move.

My tech went over every inch of it to learn, the solenoid had a wire that came out?

What is going on??

If one wheel is off the ground and the other is not, that tells me you are on a pretty good slope.

IMO, the better way to go, vs how you are doing it now, is to buy some stackable plastic squares that interlock -- so you can drive up on them. This is far better than torqueing your chassis, but don't be surprised if your jack on that raised wheel side will not reach the ground.

I carry a few 12x12 wood blocks (double stacked) to put under my jacks with this condition.

Ours is a 23 but on our one front CS side the dealer told us to always use the slide keepers since its the lightest slide and can get sucked out. On our rear slides (master BR) we have never used them and never had an issue. On our large Street Side slide its petty heavy with the fridge/sofa and two recliners so also never used the keepers and never had an issue.

We have a 2014 with hydraulic slides, so take these comments with that caveat.
With the hydraulic slides, the buttons control valves. Those same valves also have manual lever that can be flipped/switched.
I have seen 2 reasons the hydraulic slides will want to move on their own:
1) Air in the system - temp changes will make the slides move. Fix - typically fully cycling the slide/jack multiple times. In some cases may need to have system bled by techs.
2) Manual valve isn’t closing completely. Checking the manual levers on the valves, flipping them back and forth a few times to be sure the valve is fully closing has solved this issue for us.
