Slide out issue

To reset the limit switch’s when all the way in keep holding the button for 3-4 seconds then let go. Do the Same on letting it out! Stopping in between can off set the limit switches!

Slides are not without malfunctioning risk, some work better than others but I agree with the previous comment. I have seen several people forget to keep their finger on the button when the slider finishes its travel both retracting and extending. I don't know too many rigs that have no sliders these days unless they are Class Bs.

Like Mac man says, it's probably got the motors out of sync and they are running at different speeds. The problem is also magnified when the button is held for 2-3 seconds after the slide binds somewhere in the middle of the full travel. Let us know if you get it resolved.
