We are also having the same issue with large slide, have had it adjusted and was told not to operate slide in with It leveled on hydraulic legs. It's ok to slide it out with legs down however when retracting the slide in it should be attached to tow vehicle. That way it sets on the suspension and should retract in normally. This doesn't really make a lot of common sense to me however this is what the service tech recommends.

I am not a service tech but that doesn't sound right to me. But that is just my opinion. I unfortunately don't have the hydraulic system. But want it.

That makes no sense to me.
How does the slide know if it's attached to a tow vehicle or on its legs???
I'd think you need to contact FR

I will be taking our 415 in for service and it would be the wrong thing to tell me when I ask them to adjust our living rm slide. I have not taking it in because we wanted to use it 2 or 3 times to make sure that we cover everything that needs to be checked. I have been in contact with our dealer and he sounds like he knows what to do.

I have a list!

Take pictures before you take it in for repairs of everything

that's what I do as well.
I document everything with pictures and video.
just in case you get into one of those situations where the techs ticket reads "could not duplicate".

XLR Thunderbolt

Fixed... The glue they used on the pipe was keeping handle on the grey tank from going all the way in.

Try spraying silicone on the wipes both inside and outside. The "tech" that said to hook it to the truck when running the room in is.....um....crazy? Sounds like a small slide head adjustment and some silicone will work.

Sooooo...I cannot stress how valuable going to the Goshen FROG rally is....for getting repairs done on your camper. We have gone two years in a row, and the plant manager and the service manager come to your unit, and work non stop, until every item on your list is repaired or replaced! Free of charge!
As a matter of fact, there were only 4 XLR's there this year....and that is out of 308 FR units that went.....so we were actually spoiled by the XLR team! They would love for more XLR's to show up at the rally! If you ever have the opportunity to go, it will simply blow your mind, what they can do for you! I fall in love with my XLR each time I go!

Stunned to hear they do repairs like that at the rally's. That is a great benefit for sure. Makes me feel even better about ordering a new 340x12hp!!
