Slide out retracts few inches each time.

Running to the end of Google College so I thought I post here.

Have a Class A with the Lippert Powergear in-wall slide. (not Schintek) We have a full wall slide and a bedroom slide as well. Each one of those works fine.

The issue is with the other slide. It runs half the length of the RV. The issue I'm having is it will retract a few inches then I have to press the switch again and a few inches more - may 1-2 seconds between each press. It will fully retract but a few inches at a time. I will note it was cold (40ish degrees) but I don't think that is the issue. It was suggested that there is a low voltage fuse that may exist but I've reviewed all wiring diagrams and can't find the fuse. It was also suggested that it is binding but this only happens periodically and so far only when retracting. The maintenance on these slides is almost nothing so no real place to grease.

I've attached the wiring diagram for those that are more adventuresome.

Any help would be appreciated.

First off, Welcome to IRV2!

Are you connected to shore power or engine running when operating the slide? The Lippert in wall slides are very susceptible to low voltage conditions. What you are describing sounds like the battery is being pulled down below minimum voltage, then recovers allowing another cycle. If your batteries are older or weak can also cause the voltage drops when under load.

Thanks for the reply.


I do have the engine running and wait until the grid heater for the intake (diesel) stops taking its toll - basically warming up the engine. Then I bring the slides in. The other 2 slides work perfectly - 1 of those slides is a full wall slide. So, I don't think it is low voltage issue.

Thanks for the reply.


The only circuit breaker I can find is a 1600-070-300 push to reset breaker. I've found the control box and looked around it as well as the switch and around the circuit breaker. All other lines are buried in the floor or wall.


Is this the breaker you are thinking of?

NO.....
Push to reset is a manual reset CB. If it trips you have to manually reset it

Sounds like 'controller' is faulty or possibly wiring harness
What model is controller?
