350 slidout interference

I got my 2011 350 just one month ago but I seem to have a couple of odd problems...
one of them is if i close the left bed slideout after the right slideout instead of the contrary, the right slideout will go out about an inch
i checked to see if there was a mechanical interference between the two but they dont touch and i see the right slideout go out when i push on the 'in' button for the left bed slideout
of course, if i close the right slideout after, it seems ok but it annoys me cause sometimes, the right slideout is left a little open without my permission...!
thanks for help!

My bedroom slide will move a little when I open or close the Sofa/Dinette slide if I opened or closed the bed slide last. Not much but I think it may just be the valve doesn't close off 100% until that other slide gets moving out. I just make sure I close it or open it which ever is the case when it happens. It must have something to do with the pump and valve assemblies. I haven't notice anything happening when I level the unit though.

My 350 is the same way. It seems to behave better if the left rear slide is closed last. The bed ends up squishing a bit but the slide gaskets are still sealed even though it's pushing against the opposite slide.

On our maiden voyage with our 378 I noticed after leveling our rig one night that the main slide had extended about 5" without being actuated with the switch. Freaked me out thinking "did I just drive all that way with a slide 5" extended, nah I would have seen it in the mirror". Only happened once more with the same room and right during leveling. Have had the rig 2 years now and it hasn't done it since. I can only guess that there may have been a few air bubbles in the system that caused it to work funny until they got out. May or may not be a cause of your problems but it just came to mind when I read your post.

Samething - My 2011 Georgetown 350 does the exact same thing. Let me know if you figure out any solution other than closing the slideouts in a certain sequence
