I have a silly question?

We own a 2015 Shamrock 23ss. My question is how do we know when the slide is out all the way and in all the way. My DH is worried about the the clicking it does when we slide out or in, he is worried that it will stop it's gears. Sorry about the silly question, we have upgrade from a popup that we had for over 10 years. We have never had a slide out, fresh water grey or black tanks. We have alot to learn!! Thanks for any advice!!! We are so excited to take her out. It's still pretty chilly here in Indianapolis Indiana!!

We use the 'clicking' sound to let us know the slide is all the way in....or all the way out.
Not a silly question at all, if your not sure or don't know. ...ask

Hope that helped

I watch the living room slide when it slides into place it kind of lifts.
Bedroom slide I watch the molding it will be about a 1/4 inch off the wall.

It's a ratcheting over torque. Excessive noise will over amp the circuit and burn out a fuse.

During our PDI the tech told us the clicking was the indicator that it was all the way in or out. That is normal. Sometimes when working off of battery it will not click. Usually all I do is release the switch and push it again and I get the clicking.

Exactly, run it out until the clicking starts and then let go of the switch.

We let it go until it clicks. That's what we were told during the PDI. I think the manual says similar. Shouldn't hurt it.

Think of it like the gas cap in your car. It's not closed until it clicks but there's no benefit in turning it more after it does. In fact, if other's claims are correct, excessive clicking isn't a good thing.
