Once the hydralic slides start to creep it usually means one or both of the following. The anti creep valve is failing and or the hydralic cylinder is bad. If any paint or debris got on the shaft of the cylinder it wears the seal slightly and allows the cylinder to creep. I know this from personal experience and had fought the issue for almost a year before both got changed and issue corrected. It was so bad that the slide would move out about 5 inches while driving and I had to stop every 15 to 20 miles to bring it back in. Of course I did not have the slide locks with me but I now carry them and have not needed them since the last replacement.

Thanks for the heads up. Is this an expensive fix?

Sorry I do not know what it cost as this was still under warranty at the time. You could call Jamie at Equalizer Systems as he is extremely helpfull and could walk you through the fix if you are mechanically handy. He will also tell you what the parts and shipping would cost. Do you have an extended warranty as that should be covered. Good luck and if you need additional info on the slide just PM me
