My 33 RLDS has bedroom slide issues. When I retract it I always "help" pull in the top with my right hand as I work the button with my left..If I don't, it will stop moving before its in all the way.

When did it develop this issue?

I probably noticed it early on. For me, my method works and its not worth 2 hours each way, twice, to drop it off at the dealer. I write it off as expected issues in a coach of this price range. I have 100 problems and I wont let this small issue be one for me

If it bothers you I guess you could bring it back and hope it wont be worse when the tech monkeys start fooling with it..

I don't have that problem with mine. Just curious where did you purchase yours from?

Thumbs up

Update: My husband went out and moved the slide out then back in when the weather warmed up some. It moved in much better than before, and after he placed the brace bar in a different place the slide was pulled all of the way in appropriately.

Have/had the same issue with the wardrobe slide on my Eagle 328 RLTS. I lubed all the gaskets and made as many adjustments as possible without compromising even sealing on all four sides. I spoke with Jayco and was told that the top of the slide will not close tightly due to slide being such light weight, and that is why they supplied the slide lock to use during travel. I have thought about modifying the slide bracket to get the adjustment necessary to bring the top in tighter, but since the slide lock brings it in OK, I have not fooled with it too much. I have a good seal and no water leaks, so I will live with it.
Seems to me it could be a pretty simple design redirection to solve the problem. I think supplying a slide lock to fix the issue is pretty lame.

Slide lock to me is more a safety deal while traveling. My old Hybrid came with 2 for the one big slide. If it was loaded up and top heavy, I could see the top tilting open on the road. I mean nothing really locks it in place except the bottom mechanism..

Re: Gap at the top of the bedroom slide.
Please see my post of this day on the same problem. It is not a temperature related problem. It is a Jayco engineering problem. The large slides work properly I assume this is a failure of company policy. Leo
