Slide Works Its Way Out On Bottom
« on: November 03, 2017, 09:07:26 AM »
Hi Folks,

My primary slide seems to open itself up some as I travel?
I have the stays for the top but I notice after driving the rig for a while, the bottom of the slide is open a inch or two at the bottom. I can pull it tight again with the motor but it will open again after some driving. Is there an adjustment for this to prevent it from moving out from its stored position?

It's an electric system.

Some electric systems have a electrical/mechanical brake attached to the motor. Maybe it's failing?
