2013 Grey Wolf Limited 26DBH Slideout Issue

Hi All.

I have a 2013 Grey Wolf Limited 26DBH that sits on a permanent lake lot. We've never had any issues before, but it is the first season since purchasing it that we had it on a permanent spot and we left the slide out all season. Last fall when we were closing up for the season the slide would not retract. It would just start to retract and then appeared that one side would stop shortly before the other side and then it would just stop completely.

I located the Dual Motor Synchronous Velocity Slide Controller (Part # 13398-C2) and was able to do a manual override to get the slide to retract for the season. It's now time to open back up and the slide does the same thing when trying to extend it now as well (Slide starts to extend, one side stops shortly before the other and then it stops completely).

Just curious if any of you have any thoughts? I wondered if replacing the controller will take care of the issue? I don't think it's a slide motor issue as overriding the controller allowed the slide to retract perfectly. I can change out the controller easy enough, but at roughly $300 a pop, hate to replace it only to realize it was something else.

Any input is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Smitty

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. I don't have the answer does sound like a faulty controller but I'm sure someone on the forum has had this problem and will have a good answer.

Thanks SeaDog. Yes, the forum is a wealth of knowledge! I've found several threads that are somewhat similar, but none so far that seem to be specific to my issue. I will keep searching and working on it and when I have it figured out I will post the solution in hopes that it helps others at some point. Thanks again!
