Bedroom slide out

Has anyone noticed a skip when extending the bedroom slide? On my 14 390BH, when the slide is fully retracted and I go to extend it, it starts to move out, sinks down, stops for a split second and then extends fully. Does not do this when retracting and does not do it if I extend it from any position other than fully retracted. Not sure if this is normal and I just haven't noticed it or I have something else starting to go wrong. Motor works just fine and strong just that quick skip in the beginning but only when trying to extend from the fully retracted position.

I have not noticed this issue but there was another thread on this. If you lift up the bed and remove the wood panel covering the motor, there may be a loose bolt that holds the motor and track that is causing the skip.

Found this post on the issue. I believe that there may also be another post that shows the slide mechanism but can't find it at this minute.

Thanks for the help!!! I'm dropping the coach off tomorrow for some final minor warranty work so I'll have to add this one to the list. Hopefully once they are done with it I have no more issues.

Thanks again!

I have "fixed" mine three times, but it just goes back out of adjustment again. The motor with it's pinion is adjustable up and down. I push it up as far as it will go (tightly against the rack) , then re-tighten the bolts.

After one or two cycles, it's again skipping. Driving me nuts!

However, yours sounds like there may be a tooth on the rack broken off. JMO.

Boowho??

Boo,
is there any way you can get some washers under the rack to help take up some of the slack so it doesn't slide down?

Tom, thanks for that idea. If those bolts "bottom out" in the cast housing before they really tighten, then washers sould certainly do the trick.

I'll be checking on that after my leak problems are all fixed up..... And you all thought full-timing was just a 365 day-per-year vacation!!!
