help gas to stove shuts off with slide out

hi everyone this is my first visit my boss just bought a 2013 salem cruise lite camper and the stove will only operate when slide out is in.

no gas when it is out

my thought is its a safety switch creating the problem. possibly wired backwards or in demo mode???

The originating dealer is an 8 hour drive and the closest dealer is about 2 hours

he is a auto tech/manager so he has tracked it down to only working when the slideout is not in the out position

works perfectly with it in

any help would be greatly appreciated This will be his first year with the camper and work is going to be so much easier and productive if I can help him figure this out without him sacrificing valuable vacation time towing it to a dealer

thanks again

If the gas line is a rubber hose it's probably getting crimped somehow when the slide is in.

I would guess that the gas line is being pinched with the slide out. Look under the stove, there should be an access panel,or cabinet door. Trace the line back to the source.

Thanks for your replay that was our first thought and haven't ruled it out (yet)

was hoping it was a bonehead newbie thing that has an obvious "hey joker the dealer forgot to reverse the switch" LOL

got to thinking well... maybe it is a safety switch/solenoid that was operating backwards and with his limited and my zero experience with new equipment and safety features the elementary kinking of the hose would be too simple lol
