I'm a little late to this discussion but I had the same problem with my sofa slide. As Mmnsc said you're gonna have to change your slide piston & the associated anti-creep valve.

So much good info on this forum. I got my hydraulic lift leak fixed half way through my lap on Weds, and slides don't look to have budged for 90 miles. I have a 120 mile round-trip tomorrow and I'll watch 'em. If the anti-creep is gonna fail, I'd be happy for it to happen while still in warranty. Still figuring this all out as I go...

I had my anti creep value replaced in Elkhart and the kitchen slide is still creeping. In storage it came all the way out with the slide locks out. I have an email to Randy. Going to Gaffney for maintenance does anyone know of a good rv repair shop to help get this fixed.

It sounds like you still have air in your hydraulic system. After I had my anti-creep valve replaced, I did get some creeping periodically. I ended up putting the slide in and out 6 to 8 times in a row. I also put the slide locks on when it was in. After about 6 months I found the creeping had stopped and now I don't use the slide locks anymore. As for Gaffney, sorry I can't be of much help, only that Freightliner is not response for nor do I believe they do any work on parts of the Motorhome other than what they manufacturer at the factory. Hope that helps. Craig

Craig,
Your info is a big help I will try it on Monday. I have not found a good rv shop and I wanted to know if there was a shop between New York and Gaffney to help resolve my slide issue. I hope purging the air in and out will help and I will not need a shop.
Thanks.
Debbie

Unhappy

I am having the same problem. I thought it was the battery, checked it today and it checks ok.

I have to let kitchen slide rest 3 or 4 times before I get it extended or closed. Generally the small entertainment center slide moves without having to rest.

As I found out the hard way the anti creep valve is not always the problem. Sometimes it is the cylinder as you get a small amount of blow by the main seals and lets the pressure equalize allowing the the piston to creep out. I eventually had to replace both the new anti creep valve I had installed the previous month along with the cylinder. Also the replacement cylinder from Equalizer is now a larger diameter piston and therefore stronger.

Debbie, Bought the valve from Equalizer. Had Buffalo RV install, as I didn't want to mess with the hydraulics. Buffalo RV had to call Equalizer to figure out how to install, as there are less connections with the new valve. Look at this post for pictures and more information. Hope that helps. Craig
