Need Some Help With Slide Issue
« on: July 17, 2017, 10:20:00 AM »
On my new truck camper one of my 3-slides when opening and closing stops before reaching it's inner and outer limit despite continued depressing of the switch.  Once I release the switch and depress it again it continues it's travel without a stopping.  As mentioned my rig has 3-slides and the other two work flawlessly.  It is a new rig and under warranty, but I thought I would post my issue here in case there might be a simple solution before bringing it back to the dealer.  Frankly as of right now it is only a very minor inconvenience, but want to keep a breast of it in case it is indicative of a future failure.  The slides are Schwintek slides. Thx.

With my Schwintek slides, I was told to hold the button for 3 to 5 seconds after it stops in each direction. I don't know if doing that will solve your undertravel issues or not.
Here is the troubleshooting guide I was advised by the Tech to down load when doing the walk-thru with me when we bought ours:

It doesn't say anything about under travel though.

There are also some good YouTube videos  on Schwinteks also.

Problem solved thank you, this helped.  I was holding the switch for 1-2 seconds after the slide reached it's end of travel, so after reading your post I have held the switches for 5-seconds and now the one slide is working correctly.
