wiring diagram for the slides

I have a 2000 wilwood 28RKSS. When retarcting the slide it won't shut off. It will reactivate and then shut off, It will do this two or more times before it will shut down for good. Is there any ajustments for it to hit for shutoff?

Sounds like you have a bad switch. When you quit depressing the switch the slide should stop immediately and not restart until you press the switch again. Pull the switch out and see if the contacts look burnt or bent. I'd probably replace the switch anyway.

Thanks but the switch on the pump does the same thing. When we brouth it last year the dealer said that when it was fully extended and retracted the lights goes dim till the breaker releases which it does when being extended fully. Could it be a fualty breaker?

Something doesn't sound right about that. Do you have to hold the switch depressed in order for the slide to move? If you don't then I'm thinking of a completely different animal. I've never seen a slide switch where you didn't have to hold the switch in to actuate the slide.

You should not be tripping a breaker when extending or retracting the slide. Once it seals against the side you should release the button(switch) and it should stop. Tripping the breaker means you're overloading the circuit and that's never a good thing.

Do you mean the hydraulic pump or the water pump? That's weird too.

Someone please chime in here if I'm completely off base.

No it is the hydraulic pump. No it keep on moving without the switch being pushed. could it be the wall switch is bad. I used the switch on the pump the last time and it did the same. I wish I could find the wiring diagram so I could check out the entire circuit. This is the crazyest thing that I have ran accross. This the frist trailer that I have had with a slide so I'm in the learning curve.

Sounds like the wall switch is bad to me. Here's a manual for power gear. it may not be your brand but it should be close to the same. PowerGearUS

I looked up the web site that you gave and it has the manual for my pump system. They have manuals for a lot of different systems. Mine is a Dewald system. It has a trouble shooting chart plus part numbers for all of the parts. Thank you for pointing me in that direction. According to the manual it could be a selonid or the wall switch. Again thanks.

I finally got it fixed. It turned out to be the seloniad as it wasn't shuting off fast enough. The rep at the pump web site said that when one goes out both of them should be replaced so I have the other on order. Again thanks for all of the info. I downloaded the manual for my pump system. Agian thanks.
