Lacrosse 301RLS slideout failure
That's interesting post. I have a 2014 and I have the Schwintek slide on my bunk/bedroom slide. One time when bringing the slide in, one side got hung up on something my son left on the floor in the path of the slide. Now the ends of the slide were off timing - one side closer in than the other. Not knowing what to do and we were leaving from camping headed back home - I simply powered down the controller and pushed the slide in. I did worry about the slide working back out so I used the "blocks" that FR supplied.
One I got home I researched the controller and figured the powering down already reset the fault. So I powered back up, ran it in/out 3 times and never had a problem since. Now my top of the slide closes in tighter than the bottom but the dealer told me this is normal as the to and bottom track its "timed" within the frame.
Point is - even though I have a 2014 my slide was able to be pushed in or out with the motors still in the the assembly.

For future failure with people with the schwintek, removing motor wires from controller will enable you to push in slide. Then reattach motor wires and slide will stay in. this worked with a code of 7 flashes, shorted wiring or motor, so should work with other electrical issues and possibly mechanical since having motors energized keeps them in either full extend or retract.

Did you actually push yours in/out using this method? If so your the first. Everything I've read on other sites say its impossible to move without disengaging motors unless its a very small lite weight slide. Curious, what size is your slide? Also, does this mean if your battery is dead or becomes disconnected somehow... the slide will fall out in a sharp curve if not energized?
Thanks

I can confirm. I did with the schwintek on our bunk/bedroom slide (3171). It wasn't that bad even though it is a long slide.

Thanks bgilly, almost makes me want to disconnect mine on my toy hauler to see if it works for me. My slide is 9' long 36" deep and has 3 recliners stationed in it.

Okay just out of curiosity I got up this morning stretched out, few push-ups (2) jumping jacks (1 1/2) getting ready for a mission. I disconnected both motors on my living slide as stated earlier, 9' × 36" deep and tried to push it closed. Boy was I surprised

It didn't move a fraction either side. What did I do wrong? I'm not the strongest guy in town but not the weakest either... thought it would have moved some or had a little play in it. NOT.

Thoughts
