Monaco: My passenger side front slide (..rv..now pistons..mechanism…

Customer Question
My passenger side front slide...
My passenger side front slide (Camelot 42 PDQ) comes out a few inches after sitting for a few days to a week; the RV service center I have been using (Monaco authorized) has been trying to fix for more than a year; first it was the pump' that didn't do it; then loose fitting; that didn't work; now pistons in the mechanism; this is a 2008 M/H and I can't believe a Monaco service center cannot repair it! Ay ideas? Thank you.

Hi: Thanks for coming to Just Answer with your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX perhaps I can assist you with this. Sounds like you need to find a new place to get service. The most common cause of creep on a slide room if it is a hydraulic unit is a leaking solenoid valve on the pump manifold. It allows the fluid to creep by and allow the room to move. If you can tell me who made your slide room mechanism I can get you a manual so you can see how this happens. Many of the Monaco coaches use either HWH or Power Gear and the name is XXXXX XXXXX the switch plate or the fluid reservoir. If this is an all electric unit I need that as well. Go HERE for a copy of the Monaco Manual for your coach if you don't have one. It is quite a few pages long and you may just want to Bookmark it. I will watch for your post. R.J.
