The info on the Lippert seems to say to stop when the slide stops.
Lippert and Schwintec are one in the same sort of (Lippert owns Schwintec).
Schwintec is an IN-Wall slide design by Lippert. Tale-tale sign is the four aluminum rails that run the length of the side of the slide wall (two each side). There is nothing on the bottom of the slide room...just a blank floor
The other one that we use is a Lippert above floor slide. Tale-Tale sign for that is a double metal rail on the BOTTOM of the slide room. That is driven by a single motor. There will be NO rails on the side of the slide room.
Above floor is clutched. Once you hear the clutch (if not before) you stop.
In-Wall is the one that has a brain and needs to be held so the motors sync.
All 3050's use the in-wall slide design.
