RV Slide Out Trouble - Will Not Extend All The Way

by Rich
(Prospect Park, PA USA)

Question: Slide out will not extend all the way. When closing it's ok, it will go out except for about 3 inches.

Robbie: Thanks for the question and I would like to help but, I need much more information from you to answer this sort of question.

I would need to know details including things like:

  • Is it a motorhome or trailer?

  • Is it electric, hydraulic, or cable operated?

  • Is the control and in and out button, automatic, key operated or a combination of two?

  • How old is the system?

  • Has it sat for a long time?

If you can answer these questions and give me any other information you can think of, I will do my best to help you out.

You also can always contact the manufacturer for ideas if they are still in business.

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

I have the same issue NEW
by: Garry

I have a 2007 Damon Astoria with 2 slideouts. I bought it used last year and used it several times. The slides were fully extending. Now they are going most of the way out and coming about 3 inches short of becoming fully extended. I check for obstructions and everything appears to be clear. The slideouts are LCI Electric motors.
