I've had my 3051S for 6 months now and put 5000 miles and 35 to 40 nights in the RV with no real problems.
During the PDI the dealer told me to just push the slide out button until the slide was extended and the motor noise stopped. Same for retracting the slide.
But I've read other comments on here - one in the last day or two that there is more to it than that. The most recent comment was:

So, perhaps I'm missing something. I am usually worried about holding the in/out button too long and I'm careful to let go of it as soon as it seems "done."
Are there slide operation steps and instructions that I'm not aware of? If there are I'd sure like to know what they are. I'd say that slide problems are my number one fear of problems (and leveler's are number two) when setting up or breaking down.
