Remote Control Slides

Has anyone had their slides move without touching a remote or a switch.
I had the DS slide move in at @ 0600 Saturday morning. What a wake up. The dogs were not happy.
Any help would be appreciated.

I can say I have never had that problem. How much did it move? A few inches or all the way in by itself?

We have the remote control but have not seen that issue. But it is, what I would call, quirky. I know the remote is "paired" with the receiver (ours is behind the rear wall in the basement, curb side) but I wonder if someone in the CG was using their remote to retract the slides in prep for leaving and your receiver "listened" to their remote. Shouldn't be possible, but...

RedHorse1, quirky is a good definition. We quit using our remote. the large slide would start and stop no matter how carefully we would try to aim the remote. I don't need something to jam up when I'm dry camping somewhere.

It moved all the way out. Last fall it was the rear stablizors. This has me worried. If the dogs had been kennelled it might have hurt them.

Ever time I see the remote ... I get lost in what the abriviations are for... Can someone help me... little slow I recon. I have to admit I like the look of the Montana remote my friend has VS the Jayco.

I would ask the dealer to look at your remote and receiver, also might not hurt to know where you could disable it AKA fuse or the controller box.

ODS = opposite door slide
DS = Door Slide

door meaning entry door.

You need to determine the number associated to each from there. Which I am still guessing most of the time when I use it.

I just noticed that our remote doesn't even work, our 2014 eagle sits on our lot, and never moves, they want the camper to pair it, I guess the remote is a loss, as im not towing it anywhere.

Our remote has an extra button for a 4th slide that we don't have. As I said above, our receiver is on the door-side of the basement behind the rear wall. We have a small hatch allowing access. It has replaceable relays and I'm thinking that I could figure out how to hotwire around it should it fail, kind of like the hotwire instructions for the power awning.

faster, I believe there are pairing instructions on the backside of the remote and the dealer told me that is was a 30 sec effort tho I've not had to do it.

The batteries that come in the remote from Jayco are junk. The first thing to do is toss the battery and buy a good alkaline battery.

The battery number is 24C or C24, depending on the manufacturer.
