Seismic 4113 slideout won't retract

Today is our 90th day of ownership of a 2018 Seismic. To celebrate, the couch slideout died after extending 2" today. We have tried every possible fix suggested in the Seismic manual as well as the Lippert Power Gear website. It won't budge. Any ideas how to get the thing to move so we can haul it back to the dealer for service?

Welcome to the forum.

Sorry, no help, but a couple of questions...
Are you on 'shore power' and is your battery fully charged?

Is the dealer close? If it's out only 2", could you 'tie' it so it can't move any further and tow it to the dealer?

Jayco has authorized some mobile RV repair businesses to do warranty repairs. This may be one of those times.

You might try having one person hold down the power button to the the retract position while you push the slide in from the outside. Sometimes keeping that switch held down while you push in will work.

Keep us posted, ok?

Thanks for the replies, yall.

We're on shore power. Dealer is about 25 miles away. How would you suggest tying it closed? It won't move in or out.

We tried to push it while holding down the button. Nothing.
Tried to retract manually with ratchet. Nothing. Tried to disengage the motor, still nothing.

After six hours of this, husband was ready to push it into the Red River. Lol

Did you try the over ride button on the controller in the basement?
How did you try to disengage the motors, electrically or physically?
Also call LCI customer service 866-5247821.

Also, if you want to try to move with it like it is, you can block it in place by placing a 2 x 4 or something similar between the top of the slide out and the inside wall.

This model doesn't have an override button on the controller in the basement. We tried to disengage the motors physically but couldn't. Service center told us they're a booger to get out and even harder to get back in. They were right.
Thanks for the LCI number and 2x4 suggestion. We accepted the next available appt for service - Oct. 25.

Good luck and let us know what caused the problem and how it was solved when it gets serviced.

If someone with a working system (Lippert 366701) could perform the check on the attached bulletin and confirm if voltage is constantly present or only present when activating slide in/out switch, I would be ever so grateful. Ours has 0 VDC either way. Might be our problem..
