Have RV Questions? Ask an RV Mechanic Online.
Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.
That can be from low voltage or a lack of lubrication or both. One battery or two? Plugged into shore power or not? And do you know whose slide hardware this is? Tracks or cables on the sides of the room? Get back to me with this information and I can assist you further.
One battery is going to give you trouble
Tracks on the sides or underneath? If underneath you need to lube them up with slide rail lubricant on a regular basis.
And get some wiper seal lubricant for the seals all around the sides, top and bottom. Thetford makes a good one for both of these. Get another battery in there. Slide out motors are power hungry and use a lot of power and can suck one battery down quickly. Any RV with slideouts should have at least two batteries and be plugged into shore power when moving them. Hope that proves helpful here. Please get back to me if you need more as all followups are included in our fee.
If they are on the side, this is a Lippert Schwintek systems and those can be troublesome. I see these questions every day here. Use some silicone spray on those tracks. Wiper seals need to be lubricated each time as a rule. Definitely need all the power you can get from the batteries.
Find the control module and have some extra fuses handy. When I get to my computer here shortly I can get you a good trouble shooting video.

That can happen. It may need to be reset on the zero points. See the attached link for that video on the system. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=lippert+schwintek+video&view=detail&mid=3945D01532C2BEAC014D3945D01532C2BEAC014D&FORM=VIRE
You are most welcome!

That would do it. If the system isn't properly zeroed out then it won't lift evenly.

That should be asked as a new question. Follow ups are for those things associated with the original question and solution. Thanks!
