I have no idea how it works but the battery disengages the brake when the switch is operated to open or close the slide according to what I have read.

No battery drain except when the slide is operating.

If it requireds power to disengage the brakes, how do you use a manual crank? Hold the switch while someone else cranks? What if you have no power?

I'm not trying to be a wise ash, I'm curious as to how this works.

Assuming that our discussion is on the subject of slides manufactured by Lippert Components, Inc., the following link may provide some clarity on the manual operation "differences" of various Lippert slide models. Confirming the slide model in question will be the first hurdle.

I noticed that there are a couple different model slides with the 12VDC brake with different manual operation procedures, and some have the manual override switch, others don't.

Hope this helps...... a little

Bob:

Thanks for the link. It will take some time and patience to go through the info there.

We had a discussion about electric brakes in slide motors on another forum a few years ago. The electrical engineers pointed out that there was not electric brake function in the motor that was being discussed at that time.

That's why I want to see what has changed since then.

If there is a brake in the motor, it either requires power to engage or disengage.

That one is bookmarked. Seems like they now have an index of all slide arrangements. Great idea.

Flush Floor slide problem

Well I got to Maggie Valley this afternoon and the door side slide would not open. I was able to push it open manually from underneath while my wife operated the motor from inside.

The motor is running but the gear box obviously has a stripped gear inside. I called my dealer back home and they were very helpful. Talked with Jayco Cust. svc. and they will agree to pay for a mobile tech to come out and repair. There are no dealers that do mobile work nearby. Talked to a mobile tech today and he agreed to come out and give me an estimate. Jayco said to have him call with an estimate and it will be covered.

If I can manually move it back in, I may just take it back to my home dealer next week when we return home.

A 5/8 in socket is the correct size but has no effect on the box so it has to be stripped.

More as it unfolds?

The gear box has a stripped gear. We decided if we could close the slide manually, we would just enjoy the rest of the week, take it back to our home dealer next week.

This morning, two of us were able to push it back in. No brake effect due to the gears stripped. Back out and in camping mode. I will need to get 2 sticks of 2X4 to wedge it closed on the trip home. (Travel Bars)

I called our home dealer, gave them the motor/gearbox part number. They will get it on the way from Jayco. BTW, big letters on the bottom "Made In China"

Another fun day camping!!
