Slide won't work

Folks, got out bedroom slide out today but when bringing it back in, the front part of the slide mechanism kind of quit working. It's a Jayco Eagle SuperLite HT 26.5 RLS with a bedroom slide for a wardrobe. When we did the walkthrough the slide balked when I tried it, but later the mechanic got it to work. We have put it in and out a number times, but this time it just doesn't want to work. Any ideas and is this the proper forum for this question? If not, would the moderator move it to the proper place?

First question is , how far to the dealer? It's good that it has already been documented as not working before you took delivery. If it is in warranty they should take care of it.

I would check the connections on the slide controller. if it has one. Not sure what type slide that is but it does not sound like a big one.

It is a small slide but it is a system with electric motors and what look like a series of long skinny "U's" where the slide system is. I have called the dealer, 2 1/2 hours away but probably will not hear from them until tomorrow. Was just hoping somebody had had the same type problem and gotten it solved.

I realize it's an obvious question, but is your battery fully charged? They are very sensitive to low voltage problems.

Actually it is plugged in to our house with a 30 amp set-up. Sorry I left that out. The larger slide worked ok as did the awning.

Next question? Does it move at all, even if ever so slightly when you push the switch? If it does try bumping it in with the switch. If it is in any kind of a bind, or there is any debris under it the controller will think it is closed. We had that happen on our kitchen slide and I found a loose screw that was in the carpet. Stopped it from continuous movement but I could bump it in.

It does move a bit, but will go out until it seems to line up the front corner with the rear corner. It is the slide on the front corner that seems to bind. I have tried to pull and push it in but that doesn't seem to work either. I'll try to "bump" it in later. Thanks for the help.

Sounds like the same type of slide mechanism as the front bedroom slide on our former 2011 365BHS. When the tornado slammed it against the tree, all my slides still worked, but the bedroom slide (which had the "U" groove slides was "****ed" where the front end has been forced out an inch or 2 further than the rear. I got it to slide all the way out, but when I went to slide it back in, it slid maybe 16" or so and then bound up and stopped. Wouldn't go in, but would slide back out. You might check and make sure yours hasn't somehow slid out further on 1 side.

That mechanism has more than one motor. Somewhere there is a little box called a motor Synchronizer module. Check all the connections on it and I'll bet one is loose. Your dealer should check this out as you stated it did it once before.

Found the control for the front bedroom wardrobe slide and it's flashing a red light eight times like the guy talked about in the video. Something about "hall power". I will talk to the dealer to see if they can help.
