HELP ON ROAD: Side won't completely extend

Hi everyone

So I just pulled into Fort wilderness at Disney, and my slide won't go all the way out. I have no idea what to do. It sounds like the motor just stops when it is about 8 to 10 inches extended. Any ideas please?

I had a similar problem and the slide out owning bracket was loose and getting jammed preventing the slide out from pulling out. White ring on awning.

Reel it back in then have a helper slowly extend the slide while you check around the inside to make certain the edge of the slide isn't hanging up on a cabinet door knob (ask me how I know)..*s. If all is clear and it still doesn't go out fully, repeat the process while outside, under the slide looking for something jamming it up. Last effort would be to use the crank and manually extend it to see if it's the motor getting weak. Maybe others can chime in with other idea's.

Thanks everyone. I figured it out. It was these. Although I don't know what they do. Looks they they loosened up and got caught. Could someone tell me what they do and if I need to have it fixed before the long home on Froday, or can it wait?

I had the same symptoms and my dealer replaced the front motor on the slide out. It was an intermittent problem that did not show an error light on the controller.


EDIT: I believe the parts you just posted a picture of are part of the slide out cover. Where did you remove them from?

That's what I was referring to. That was my problem. They only have one screw and come loose.
