Sandpiper Slide Problem

Purchased a Sandpiper 365SAQ. After 6 months of use, we started having slide problems. When you hold the button to open, the front, middle and one side goes out. The other rear slide will stop. Even the motor stops. You can let the button off and push it again and it will start moving then stop. This goes on several times. Same thing happens when you go in. Doesn't do it every time. Any ideas? Switch going bad?

seen my friends slide out act up
the motors I think
stop easy on purpose
so as not to destroy something
just enough kick so as to
get the THING out there

many times these ones
straight from the factory
are NOT greased as one would think
and at times
workers get light with the grease

and then others such as my friend
let his slide on his older unit
get somewhat dry
he took it to an RV shop
for the so called pro lube
they did not do a good job
charged an arm and a leg

best to know it
do it yourself

try the very best you can
to get to all moving parts
and lube everyTHING up well
it is amazing what a
little grease and silicone can do

Be sure the trailer is level. Slides aren't as balanced as we think they are and need/require the unit to be level front to back, side to side.

Also be sure the battery is fully charged, even if you have shore power connected
