Its been a while since I have contributed to the forum, but I hope someone can assist me on a issue I'm having with my main slide out.
I was camping in Aug., packing up and of course thats when the slide out would not respond. I was plugged into shore power and had a fully charged battery, so I was thinking the slide motor was shot. I used the little nine inch whip driver and brought the slide out in. Of course I had to remove all the top 1x6 wood trim around the top and side perimeter for the slide in order to gain full access to the slide motor. I'm pretty tall and it took all my arms length plus standing on the cooler to reach that driver as the slide started coming in. Since then, I spent $100 on a 3ft whip driver and hopefully won't have to use it, but if so, I'll be ready!
I initially contacted the MFR Norco Industries who makes the slide out motor and tried to trouble shoot it with one of their techs, they felt it was not the motor, but instead said to check if there is a voltage drop. I passed on this option and brought my Tracer 3150 into the dealer. The first thing they did was tell me my 6 month old battery was not properly sized for the trailer and replaced it with an adequate one. The other item they identified was that one of the electrical wires was melted (for the slide out). They replaced that, tightened up the slide cables as they were loose. But now, they are trying to adjust a skipping or slipping of the slide out!
I tried searching for skipping slide outs, but only located one fix that was listed as a Reseting of the slide out. I do not want to pick up my trailer when there is still an issue with it, so I am hoping one of you readers might have heard of a similar scenario of this and can provide a fix.
Please let me know!
