2015 2400s slide out

I recently became the proud owner of a new Sunseeker 2400s and I'm really enjoying it. I have a question I'm hoping someone can help me out on with the slide out. It takes up to 5 minutes to go in and out. I'll be holding the button and it continually starts and stops, moving a few inches each time. Why is this happening and what can I do to fix it?
Thank you all.
Sam

To me it sounds like something wrong with the unit, might want to have it looked at. Did it take that long during the PDI?

It wasn't smooth then either, but it has gotten worse. I bought it new two weeks ago.

Take it back. Sounds broke to me.

No way should it take that long. 30 seconds is about normal. Take it to your dealer.

It sounds like you have loose wire connections.

Something is hanging up, which means it will stop so that you can re-sync. When it stops, let go, then hit the button again, the other side should come into square, it will stop again, then start back in square (until it is unsquare again and stop). That is what is happening...now you need to figure out what is causing it.

Check that the rubber seals on the outside are not getting caught in the roller below the track. Sure sign is a black roller wheel. (should be white)

The more I talk to the Forest River authorized repair shops the more I fear I'll be fixing this myself. It seems the two tracks are not on the same tread. Not sure how to fix this. Ideas?Click image for larger version

As shown above, one side is touching the stop, the other is not. Holding the button down doesn't fix it.

1. My earlier post is all incorrect. I did not pay attention to the model. You have an above floor Lippert flush floor slide out (not a schwintec). My apologies.
2. The stops could be in the wrong spot.
3. Let me print this, take it to the slide out department and get back with you in the morning.
