Bedroom slide not fully extended

We have a 2012 378 and our bedroom slide all of a sudden decided not to fully extend, leaving a few inch gap at the top..took it in to the dealer and they were stumped as to how to fix it..first thought it was over extending at the bottom and they added longer screws but that didn't help...suggestions?

This sounds like you are low on fluid in the tank.
I have a 378 also and if the tank is full with slides in and levelers up.


1. To setup with a full hydraulic tank 1" from top.
2. Put your levelers down.
3. Take the largest slide out 1st
4. Then the other one in the living area.
5. Then the bedroom.


Now when you are ready to leave
1. Bring the small bedroom slide in first.
2. Then the smaller living area slide
3. Then the large slide
4. Then lift the levelers.


This way the tank will have enough fluid for all.


But again I bet your tank was low and that's why the slides stopped.


Then the large slide.

I had the same problem. The bottom is fully extended but the top is a few inches in. Turns out to be that the rubber flap seal (not sure what it's called) does not flip outwards when the slide is moved out. This causes it to bind against the edge of the slide. My dealer put abrasive sticky paper (like your steps have) on the top of the slide so the friction would flip the seal. It worked for a while but eventually the sticky abrasive came off. Now I put the slide about 1/2 of the way out and stick my hand on the top of the slide and run down the top pushing out the seal manually before fully extending. My guess is that the top seal is too long so it won't flip or the slide is set too high in the opening. Mine was out of warranty before I figured all this out....
