44,000 miles. No, first time with this issue.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your RV?

2007 Winnebago Voyage 38J

Yes. Nothing yet.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Check to see if any debris is found in the track or guides causing this issue here needing cleaned out or removed from this fault.If this is or was already checked and found to be o.k. make sure the RV is level as this can also cause this fault.If these are all o.k. let me know here so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
