Slide out Problems

I am a new member, have a 2011 Jayco 322fks, have had problems with the both slides failing to extend. My dealer replaced the main switch on the front slide. Both slides failed to extend this past week-end again. I took the unit back to the dealer again, and this time they said the "clutch" was slipping, but I did not like the sound of the slide, dealer called Jayco, and Jayco agreed to replace both drive units on the slides.

This is my second Jayco, first was a 2004 and this slide system is not the same as my old one, which I never had issues with. It appears from the blog, I am not the only one with these problems. Also where do you manually extend the slides? My old unit had a hole one the door side, and a long handle nothing marking the location of the manual slide.

Another issue with my 322fks, is the lack of air flow out of the furthest heat run in the bedroom, there is a five degree spread in temp, from the front to the rear. Jayco went to flex duct rather than metal duct and the dealer say's it slows the air flow and this is about the best they can do. Other than this we love our unit, hopefully once the slides are fixed they will be trouble free.

In my old camper I replaced the floor registers with adjustable registers. This allowed me to "fine tune" the flow of heat from one room to another. We had the opposite problem, the rear bedroom got TOO much heat so we needed to limit it. It took a little bit, but I did eventually get it tuned in to where we liked it. No idea on your slide problem though.

Welcome--We don't use the heat much, if we need it we use spot electric heaters. They have always kept it plenty warm inside and you don't use your propane.

I wonder if there is some obstruction in your heat vents, since it is new maybe some debi from the build or a disconnected flex tube?

Welcome to the forum. Household heat registers that are adjustable may solve your heat problem.

Hey Buckeyejim,

I just had the screw drive replaced on my livingroom slide (2011 31RKS). The service tech. replaced the slide motor only to determain that screw-rod had snapped inside the pipe somewhere. Was'nt able to close my slide or even push it in.

All repaired now.

Jayco has had issues with the slide motors made in China. You need to call Jayco and tell them the problem with the motors. Your airflow may be blocked by material left in the vents during construction. Take off the vent cover and use a shop vac to clean out the duct. How is the A/C airfow to the back, my 2010 365BHS has horrible airflow to the back of the camper.

Welcome to the forum. Nice folks here. I'm kind of new myself. In my PDI on
April 18th I asked how to retract slides manually on our 320RLDS. The answer wasn't pleasant. Crawl underneath, remove plate covering motor, crank there. I hope there's a better way. Maybe your unit is different. Mine is only a couple of weeks old, so I best be learning more about this before the slides fail. I'm writing Jayco tonight. Please let us know if you learn something that doesn't come from this thread. Now let me find a smiley I haven't used yet. :lightning:
