Slide Stops 1/2 way out

We finally picked up our new 2015 36Y MH. Got it home and the bedroom slide will not deploy more than 1/2 way. Seems like it is binding. Nothing is blocking the slide. We have looked outside and see nothing. It is 1.5 hours back to the dealer so we are looking for solutions we can handle.

Thanks

Is that a Winnebago Vista? Did it work when you did your walk through at the dealers? Did they move it in and out for you? Do you have it leveled first before moving the slides out? I would call the dealer and have a tech trouble shoot with you over the phone.

Look under the slide on the inside see if something is dragging on the floor.

Also check on top inside for anything laying on top. Outside check that the topper cover is not binding.

Yes it is a Vista and the slide worked on the walk through.

We have checked as best we can for something blocking it.

How do we check for the topper binding?

Thanks

Sue,
If the bed moves with the slide check under and around it.

Could it be the slide locks malfunctioning, if it has slide locks? Reason I asked is that on an older Winnebago the slide lock would bind and cause intermittent operation. Eventually I could not get the slide in without someone putting their shoulder against the slide when retracting it. There was a field fix back then and it was fixed. Just sayin' as you never know what the great craftsman was doing on the day of building.

It takes a lot of force to stop a slide from operating. The motors are very powerful and can rip up things if something catches in them.

There are a couple of UTube's on Winnebago slide maintenance and trouble shooting. You might find something useful viewing them. I would also call Winnebago as this is brand new and they will help walk you through it.

Sue46 Sorry sent with my iphone early this morning when to wrong place.
Run the slide out until it stops then check the awning roller. You should be able to turn it and cause the cover to go loose.

Thanks everyone, we found the problem. The "lock"(I would call it a bumper) lost a screw and twisted funny. We moved it back into position and everythingis working now(need to get a screw). Thank goodness it was a little thing. I really didn't want to go back to the dealer.

Is that an electronic lock with a toggle button on the EMS panel that engages and disengages the locking mechanism?

No, it is a "mechanical" lock. I really wouldn't call it a lock, it is really a bumper but Cometic(?) calls it a lock.

I put pictures up yesterday and they are not here. I'll try again today.

This is the lock that lost a screw and jammed the slide. The second picture is the correct orientation.

Sue46, thanks for the pictures. Makes more sense now. That is the awning lock to keep the awning from unrolling when the slide is in and you are going down the road.

We had the screw come out and lost the lock entirely. Heading down the highway at 60 mph with a quarter wind gusting 30, DW look out the mirror and said the awning was out. It was the topper on the long slide. I could hear it when it billowed and I just decreased speed and it would suck back in. Every time it billowed I just slowed down again and it would suck back in. Eventually our track changed direction and the wind was behind us and we made it to our destination. Replaced the lock and all is well.

So, hindsight as usually, visually inspect to see if your lock is there, and in the right position. Periodically get on a ladder and check to see if the screw is still in holding it in place. One little screw about 3/8" long is all there is between a billowing awning and a stable awning.

I learned the hard way.

We don't see how it locks anything. Just rests against the MH when awing is rolled in.

Sue46, it is actually not a lock. It is to prevent the awning from billowing when travailing down the road. If the awning get air under it and trys to unroll the awning the anti-bellowing arm will hit the billowing bracket and prevent awning roller from turning.
The anti-bellowing arm should not be touching the MH. The attached picture is from our 03 Journey, I had to remove the billow spacer because the awning roll was banging against the bracket. Note the anti-billowing arm is point up.

Hi Sue, as stated it is an anti-billowing device. It allows just enough slack for the tab to come against a stop on the side of the MH when the awning billows a little.

Here is a discription if you go to the link and scroll down a little. You can also search on A&E Anti-billowing device.

Anti-billow

Other than the slide issue, how do you like your new Vista 36Y?
