Greywolf 26 DBH

We own a 2016 Grey Wolf 26 DBH. I am interested in the type of slideout system that it uses and how to operate it manually if needed. I have read the Forest River Travel Trailer Owner's Manual and the Lippert Components towable RV Master Manual. Thanks in advance for any assistance on this topic.

I'm not sure if the 2016 uses the Schwintek system or not, but my 2017 26DBH does. Here's a YouTube link for troubleshooting.

Well that was good to see. My 2016 DBH has a Schwintek. I better practice that and get a 2x4 to lock it in place. Now I wonder where that panel is for the slide? hmmmm.....

2016 Greywolf 26 BDH Slideout

Thanks for the timely reply and information. My 2016 Greywolf 26 BDH does have the Schwintek system. Would anyone know the location of the Slideout controller?

It is under the slide near the front. When fully in you can craw under at the bed and see it.

Hello all we took delivery of our 2017 26DBH on weds it was raining hard but we loaded the inside and had the slide out. Before we took it back to storage I did wipe the top of the slide off since it was rained on! Thursday we ran the slide back out as we where still doing some things and there was a puddle under the slide when we slid it back out! Today(Friday) we brought back home again to load for weekend trip and same puddle same spot but we had not opened the slide at all today! Puddle may have been a little smaller today but still there and the silver slide bracket was damp but I didn't see a drip. The only area affected is the back part by the bunks front part has stayed dry! Any thoughts!? Thank you!! Click image for larger version

Had this leaking when my top slide seal was not sealing correctly. The water would run along the roof of the slide, down the side and onto the ground. I had the same pool and flow along the floor and to the rear bathroom area.

Depending on how hard it was raining, mine at least, did not have a slide topper so what is on the 10 x 3 slide will need to go somewhere when it is retracted.

That being said I also get a bit of a puddle when I retract in the rain but it does go away since it is only what was on the roof.

Same problem here. I'm told it's the top seal. I have spoken to several owners and seems to be a problem with this model. Suppose to take mine in in January for them to look at it. So long as the slide is out, no leak.
