Wildwood 281QBXL Slideout issue

First time out in my new Wildwood and the slide has a problem. I push button and slide moves about. 6 inches and stops. Wait a second and push again and it slides another 6 inches and stops. I was able to get it out but has anyone seen this issue before?

Sorry your having issues on your new camper. Sounds like it may be a thermal protection and something is binding and it's stopping. I'd call the dealer and have it serviced sooner than later.

Before you call get a can of dry lube at an auto part store spray your rail and gear and run it in and out, that should take care of the problem. You need to keep that lubed 2x's per year. You can get it any auto parts store I use white the white grease in a spray can. the graphite is hard to see. Don't feel like your spaying to much it will not attract dirt.

X2 and also make sure your battery is fully charged or on shore power as a low voltage will cause same issue.
