Cool Slides creeping out

We have 2012 Georgetown 337. The bedroom slide creeps out while not in use. At the same time the levelor under the driver side comes down. Sometimes the slide comes out 3-4 inches (same with levelor) and sometimes a foot! This has been going on since purchase and the dealer says there is nothing wrong and to hold the slide button in for 5 seconds after its in for the hydrolics. They claim it doesn't do it when its parked in the lot but its been out when we have come to pick it up. Nothing is working...I know this isn't normal....any suggestions?

This means you have a small leak in the system. You need to have it checked out at the dealer. Contact Lippert and get a case # ASAP.
Call 1-866-524-7821. This way it will be in their system Monday and you can take that reference number to the dealer.

Check all around the pump and valve body as well as the levellers and if you can see the slide pistons to inspect all. I would also examine the hoses for bubbling on the surface. It happens when fluid gets between the inner and outter jackets and cause a weak bubble which usually bursts.


Good Luck
