Slideout problem on 2010 Ellipse 42 AD

The rear passenger side slideout creeps out when traveling about an inch. I have replaced the retract solenoid and the slide holds at the bottom but still creeps out at the top about an inch. I was told to hold the retract button for 3 to 5 seconds and that would resolve the problem. It has not. Any suggestions?

Is your slide hydraulic or electric. If hydraulic, make certain the reservoir is full. If electric, make certain the power key is off.

The reservoir is full. Are there pistons in the wall mechanism that may be leaking? These are HWH.

:welcome: Please forgive me for not noticing that you are new to irv2. It is great to have another member.

I don't think the pistons are in the walls. Try under the slides. Is your system HWH?

I would visually examine the hydraulic pump area and all connections for leaks. You may have to spray things down with a de-greaser of some sort and then hose thing off. Find each piston and look for leaks, especially for the room that is moving. If you don't know how to gain access to view a piston Winnebago support will help you. Call or email them and provide you coach SN and VIN.

If no leaks are found tell Winnebago this. One of your slide solenoids is leaking in the manifold and needs to be replaced or tightened. The folks at the factory support line will advise you.

Do you have the HWH owners manual? You may find some helpful troubleshooting tips in it.

As you look into this problem plan on getting very dirty. The fluid is nothing more than ATF without dye. But it still a mess to work around.

I look forward to what you find. You never know who you might help with your report.

Happy trails,
Rick

Found the pistons and one is leaking. HWH is sending a new one. Hopefully that will resolve the issue. Thanks for the welcome.

Are you going to replace it or have a shop do it? I would go to a hydraulic shop before I would use a dealer. Keep us posted. Thanks.

Rick

Replacing it with a new one from HWH. The guys that found the problem have done good hydraulic work for me before.
