When preparing to leave today after being parked in Bradenton,FL for six weeks two slides retracted fine with the normal noise. When we retracted the kitchen slide it got about halfway in and made a VERY loud screeching sound the rest of the way in. The sound was from the rear side of the slide.
Nothing was jammed and the hoses, drain and fridge propane line on the rear side of the slide moved OK.
We held the button in and the slide appeared to be moving at the normal speed and closed normally. Both motors cut off at the same time so they are in sync as they usually are.
Amy thoughts would be appreciated. We’re apprehensive about extending the kitchen slide for the remainder of the five day trip home but the coffee stuff is trapped in the only compartment that is inaccessible.
I’ve never applied slide seal lube and do not have any with me but wow, if it was the seal sticking it was really loud. I believe the SlimRack track is not supposed to be lubricated. All were clean before we ran the slide.
