Slide out

Hi my name is Robin, I live in Grants Pass Or, I bought my coach used, and some of the owner's manuals are missing, does anybody know if there is a weight limit on the slide out, I have a 2014 Ace 30.1 the slide out is the dinette and the couch. I took some family members Rving this weekend, and they are big people, now my slide-out is not operating properly.

Doubtful that the weight of your family members could have caused your problem unless you were giving them joy rides while opening ang closing the slides! A little more detail on the type of problem that you are experiencing might help to narrow down the problem.

Thanks,I have a neighbor coming over tomorrow to help me with the slide out, heís going to push the button, while I stand outside and try to figure out where the noise is coming from. At first I thought maybe one of the kids threw a toy back behind the slide out, but I didnít see nothing. I lubed the bottom rails, but the damn kids took my latter, so I wonít be able to lube the top till tomorrow.The slide out was struggling to go out, and then it made a banging noise and stopped, I was like oh dang,so I brought it back in and it came in, I put it back out, and it seem to struggle a little bit, while it was out I lubed the bottom rails.Iíve owned the coach two years and have never had a problem with the slide, So thatís why I thought maybe there was too much weight on it.

As for the missing owner's manuals you could contact the manufacturer customer service and they might provide them, or just google your make and model number.

Could be out of sync. if it is still opening and closing and making a noise. When you retract and extend, hold the button for 4 or 5 sec's and see if this will reset the sync. and smooth it out. You should do this each time you extend and retract the slide per the mfg. instruction which keeps the racks in sync.

I figured out the problem with the slide out, A screw came out of the plastic end cap that goes on the awning , so it was binding up. 2 years ago on our first trip out we got caught in a windstorm, the wind caught underneath the slide out awning and forced it out about 3 inches, I had to get on top of the roof and wind it back up, so I guess the force from the wind loosen the screws, because the other side was loose also. I took pictures to share, but I can't figure out how to post them!

Just under the "Reply" frame, click on "Advanced". At the top of this popup window, find the little "paper clip" icon and click on it. Another box will pop up where you can search for pictures on your device. Click on the pics you want to load. Once they are loaded, you have to click on the "load" button in this same window. Once you've done this, close that pop up window and then hit "Submit Reply" button on bottom of original window. Pretty simple once you get the hang of it. Most peeps forget to hit the "load" button.
