Unfortunately, the floor supports are not exposed. Our under body is fully enclosed.

Retime a Schwintek Slide

Ok, I was able to get my slide in thanks to the tip offered in this video.




I held the retract button until it stopped. Then I touched the extend button until I heard the motors than I pressed the retract button again. My slide came all the way in.

I repeated this twice to make sure it worked.

My slide does stop once upon retracting. I really think there is still an issue but I am able to get it all the way in by following the procedure in the link.

Try pulling gently on the fridge side. Mine was doing exact same thing. Don't jerk on it, just grab it and lean back gently. Once I did that and pulled it in 8-10 inches and put I back out no more issues

Try syncing the other way, heard that can be done too. Out 8-10, then back in three times.

vivusCraig- the controller for the kitchen slide on the FBTS is located in the cabinet under the sink in the 1/2 bath. We had the same problem and went thru the reset process of pushing reset button on controller 7 times and running slide in/out. That took care of our problem. If you haven't already done so- go on the web site and print off the manuals for the Schwintec slides- you'll be glad you did!

Fingerlakes, thanks so much. We found the controller. We reset the controller according to your instructions ( also used the Schwintec pdf), ran the slide out and in.... without stopping.

Did it 3 times successfully! Woppee. Is there anything that needs to be done to take the slide of manual mode. It doesn't look like it but just in case we missed something.

Thanks for your post.

Was having same problem, check those braces that are welded to the outside of the frame and bolted to the floor. Found this on the jayco forum showed it to dealer he contacted jayco with pictures and they said could cause the slide to bind. Jayco instructed dealer to replace braces with heavier braces and add two more under the slide where the rollers are, dealer did this and so for so good, look under the slide behind the wheels see if that brace is bent.

What make and model 5th do you have? I checked our pinnacle as per your instructions. Braces look in tack, no bends, welds look good, no signs of trauma. What did your's look like?
