Unhappy Georgetown 300FW- Slide out retraction only "inches" its way in

I have a 2011 Georgetown 300FWSNBF-3011-- with one long slide out from the bedroom to the cockpit. The s/o works just fine going out, but for retraction, it only “inches” its way in at first-- requiring multiple presses of the switch-- & then, after the s/o raises to its highest retraction point, it retracts smoothly thereafter with one continuous press of the switch.

I have the same unit as you and find that the slide works much better on the initial rise if you give the ramp area a shot of silicone spray occasionally. You can get to this from the underside of the slide outside, or by lifting the carpet flap inside. I also make sure I am plugged into shore power or have the generator running when I am operating the slide. If you do a search on the Georgetown forum, you will see more posts on this issue. Mine seems to work fine.

My largest slide did the same even when plugged in. However, my battery was on it's last leg. When I replaced the battery it went in/out smoothly and just as quick as the other two.
