Slide Out would not retract

We have a Jayco Jay-Flight 26RLS and purchased it just two years ago. This last Memorial weekend had a great time and the one main slide went out just fine. And also to say we had not been experiencing any issues with the slide at all. On the day we were to come home all was going well until we went to bring the slide in. Pushed the button, motor ran, but slide did not retract. Tried using the manual method of cranking it in but to no avail. After further inspection noticed the motor ran and when viewing from the outside noted the retracter bar was not moving underneath the slide. Had not heard anything break or any unusual noise on the first attempt at retraction. Finally with a tip from an RV tech at an RV dealer where we did not buy the rig.. He said to have someone push the retraction button while a few of us pushed on the outside to get the slide in. I suspect it either came off track or there is a gear mechanism I could not see which may have broke and without cutting into the underbelly cover was not able to further diagnose it. Dropped it off at Camping World where we had purchased it and now waiting for it to be repaired. Seems this rig is way too new for it to have had this kind of issue. We dropped it off on June 1 and our Jayco factory warranty runs out June 12. We had purchased the 5 year extended warranty but hope they will honor this repair under the factory warranty. Have any of you experienced a retraction problem similar to this?

Curious to see what the fix is... Did you all have to manually push the slide all the way in or did the gears catch after you manually pushed it is some? We finally broke down and got a camper with a slide and it worries me when I go to open or close it...

Good questions. First of all it did not appear to be the motor as the motor did kick in each time it was activated. But, to answer your main question.. we had to push the slide all the way in. At first after pushing it in a few inches I thought the mechanism would bring it all the way in but no such luck. Four of us out side pushing while my wife coniinued pushing the retract button until we got it all the way in. I will also be interested to see what the issue was. Had it just been the motor I could have cranked it in manually but that is obviously not the problem. Will keep you all up to date on the resultant repair.

On mine there is a connection on the gear motor that is coupled to the drive mechanism,( Non Schwintec) that is connected with a bolt. The bolt has sheared on mine several times. I just know where to go to replace it. It has happened several times on my large rear slides.

Repair cost about a dollar for parts.
