If it's hyd I'm thinkin the sylnoid is not set right.. my guess is the stop is not set correct.. or a faulty sylnoid.

Have you lubricated the arms of the slide out? It sounds as if the slide is binding on something causing the relay to open. When the relay cools it allows you to move the slide. Plus there should be a switch that will allow you to bypass the bedroom slide and allow only the dining room slide to open.

The cylinder with the least resistance will move 1st,thus your bedroom like stated. Then your L/R slide. I would check your fluid level and the area where it is stoping 1 ft short. If you need fluid also check for a leak in the system. In regard to the slides moving independent by Your selection,very Few units are plumed that way,regardless of Price. Youroo!!

That is a reversing solenoid, not a breaker. The breaker has to be on one of the power feed lines going to one of the spade connectors. We use these solenoids for reversing direction on electric wenches.

There is an auto re-setting breaker under the copper bar you spoke of. My 365 did the exact same thing. You can test this by jumping the breaker after it has "popped", you'll have about 7-10 secs before it resets itself. If the slide starts working, you have a bad breaker. The last time I was out camping, I had to let the breaker reset about 10x's. The dealer installed a heavier breaker and all is well.

Ok I found the re setting breaker. My question is can the breaker be weak just on the reverse side and not while extending the slides? I have greased the slide rails but it still kicks out.
