Question Full Wall Slide Problem

2011 Journey Express 34y
After 5 days in campground with slides out, pulled in both slides on right side. Pushed pad to bring in Full Wall Slide and got the 2 fault lights
*Engage Park Brake (was engaged)
*Low Voltage
Start and run coach. (was still plugged into 50 amp shore power)
Removed controller from wall and pressed reset button. When lamps cleared, pushed the In pad and slide started in, but front of slide came in faster. Stopped and sent slide back out to begin again.Front moved back out but rear wouldn’t move. Touched (in) pad to try to level things up and when I did, rear of slide moved in the (out) direction while (in) pad was being pushed. Used both (in) pad to bring in front of slide and (out) pad to bring in rear of slide. Locked slide and drove home. Before taking to area Winnebago dealer, just inquiring if anyone has had this experience and what was outcome.
* Note, Slide bars & gears are lubricated on regular basis

We don't have a full-wall slide but we did have some issues with a slide that was fixed by LCI at their shop in Indiana. It ended up being a bad motor for us. We'd have to push/pull the slide to get it in and out before having the fix done. The motor would work until point then quit and we'd have to jockey it in and out to get things in sync. It was like that for us since we bought it so we just lived with it for a couple years until we were passing through the area and just said let's get it done.

I too suspect it may be either a bad motor or possibly weak batteries. Although the panel indicated the batteries were at full charge, after bringing in both right hand slides, I may have discharged them just enough that the power level was to low to power in the full slide.

For those who have a full slide, do you always bring it in first, due to power required move that weight?

I once had an issue where the rear of our full wall slide didn’t come in as quickly as the front. I extended the slide again and found a small board was left on the floor (even though we always check for that! :-) after removing, I checked carefully for any other obstructions and moved the slide back in with no problems. Because of the error codes, it sounds like your issue is different, but even a small obstruction can make a big difference.
