Slide out help

We have a 371 REBH. It's been winterized and sits at our campground. When we came to check on it the bedroom slide was out. We put them all in. Last time it was partially out and I thought maybe I overlooked it. Starting to wonder? Can something make it come out in its own.

Not sure what could have caused that. But to prevent it further, consider closing all the valves for the winter. Then they can't open in the case you have something wrong with it.

You can try to diagnose in the spring when you are staying there.

We did close all the valves. It is only an hour away so we will probably check next weekend. Hopefully it's still in. Already has bad A/C and holding tank issue that needs warranty work.

I vaguely remember this happening to me too. I only had it home for a week and had a ton of other issues I was keeping an eye on. Maybe I didn't close them all they way. But I came out one morning and a slide was about 4" out.

It must still have (12V Power) live for the slides to Creep,be it Hyd or Mech? Is is parked on a Hillside? No power and Level parked it will NOT allow slides to Extend! Youroo!! Wait a minute,if the Hyd system is Pressurized and the Valve or Piston is bypassing it can move! Thats IF it is a Hyd. system!

It is hydraulic. Should be level too. No shore power but battery was still connected. We didn't flip breakers or battery disconnect as maybe we should've before storing.
