I have the 320. The bedroom slide on the 298 is much shorter by looking at the floorplans.

The Schwintek system operates on 2 electric motors and shaft system. There is an electric motor/gear assembly at the top on each side of the slide engaged in the track that you see on the outside when the slide is open. A shaft and gear assembly then runs down toward the bottom of the slide and engages with the bottom track. The motors are independently controlled through a control box (probably located under the bathroom sink - that's where mine is), so that if (in your case) one side should finish it's travel first, that motor will shut off and allow the other side to "catch up". Since the wardrobe slide is, in escense, a box, I think it should ride on the rollers for support. The noise you hear could either be the motor/gear/shaft assemblies not aligned properly or the side of the slide rubbing against the wall as it goes in and out.
I hope this helps explain how it works at least. Good luck

Error codes
During operation when an error occurs the board will use the led’s to indicate where the problem exists.
For motor specific faults the green led will blink 1 time for motor 1, and 2 times for motor 2. The red led
will blink from 2 to 9 times depending on the error code.
The error codes are as follows:
2 Battery drop out: Battery capacity low enough to drop below 6 volts while running
3 Low battery: Voltage below 8 volts at start of cycle
4 High battery: Voltage greater than 18 volts
5 Excessive motor current: High amperage, also indicated by 1 side of slide continually stalling.
6 Motor short circuit: Motor or wiring to motor has shorted out.
8 Hall signal not present: Encoder is not providing a signal. Usually a wiring problem.
9 Hall power short to ground: Power to encoder has been shorted to ground. Usually a wiring
problem.
When an error code is present, the board needs to be re-set. Energizing the extend/retract switch
resets the board. Energize the extend/retract switch again for normal operation.
WARNING!
DO NOT MOVE THE RV UNLESS THE MOTORS ARE PLUGGED IN!

Manual Override - C1 & C2 versions
1. Electronic Manual Override (available on board revision C1 and newer)
Locate the circuit board
Press the “mode button” six times quickly, press a 7


th time and hold for approximately
5 seconds.
The red and green LED lights will begin to flash, confirming the override mode.
Release mode button.
Back inside coach; use the normal slide control switch to retract the room.
A video demonstrating this technique can be found on the internet.
Follow this link:
2. Manually push room in override
Locate the circuit board.
Unplug both motors from circuit board (releases motor brake).
Push or pull slide room in as desired; Larger rooms may require several people to push.
Keep both sides of room relatively even.
When room is completely in, plug both motors back in to the control board (this applies
brake for road travel).
3. Disengage motors, manually retract room and travel lock.
Repeat this process for both sides of slide room.
Push or pull room back in to opening, keep both sides relatively even.
The room must be travel locked to keep room in place for road travel.
A video demonstrating this technique can be found on the internet.

Pull the motor up until
Bend back wipe seal and disengaged, about Ĺ”
visually locate motor
Locate and remove motor retention screw
located near top of each vertical column.

Checking Fuses
The Schwintek Inwall Slide requires a minimum of 30 amp fuse. Check the 12 volt fuse box for blown
fuses, and replace any if necessary. Consult the rv manufacturers documentation for the location of the
12 volt fuse box, and the location of the Room Slide Controller’s fuse. If the fuse blows immediately
upon replacement, there is a problem with the wiring to the Inwall Slide control box. Have qualified
service personnel check and repair.
Obstructions
Check outside the rv for possible obstructions: tree, post, car, etc… Check inside the rv for any
obstructions: luggage, furniture, open cabinets, etc… Also check for smaller objects that may be
wedged under the floor or in the sides of unit. Remove obstructions before proceeding.
Error Codes
Consult rv manufacturer’s documentation for the location of the Inwall Slide Controller. See page 1 for
a description of the error codes, and possible problems.
Low Voltage
The Schwintek Inwall Slide Controller is capable of operating the room with as little as 8 volts. But at
these lower voltages the amperage requirement is greater. Check voltage at the controller. If voltage is
lower than 11 volts, it is recommended that the battery be placed on a charger until it is fully charged. It
may be possible to ’jump’ the rv’s battery temporarily to extend or retract the room. Consult the rv
manufacturer’s owners manual on the procedure for ‘jumping’ or charging the battery.
**********Never ‘jump’ or charge the battery from the power connections on the Inwall
Controller. Always do this at the battery.*****************
Only 1 side moving
The Schwintek Inwall Room Slide has a separate moto


r to operate each side of the room. Does only 1
side of the room move a short distance (2 to 4 inches) and stop.
Will non moving side move with help


?
If only 1 side of the room is moving, then with someone’s assistance press the switch to extend or
retract the room while pushing the non moving side in the appropriate direction. On larger rooms it may
be necessary to have 2 or more people pushing the room.
Non moving side moved manually
Try to push the non moving side in and out. If a motor shaft has broken then it will be possible to move
that side of the room several inches by hand. Larger rooms may require several people to push.
Debris in the rack
Check all 4 gear racks on the side of the room for debris.
Do status led’s light
Consult the rv manufacturers documentation for the location of the Room Slide Controller. When the
room slide direction switch is actuated, do the status led’s light up. Check this in both the extend and
retract modes.
IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS OR QUESTIONS CONSULT YOUR LOCAL AUTHORIZED
DEALER OR CALL LIPPERT AT:
(866) 524-7821.
