2015 Miramar 34.2 Slide will Not Retract-HELP

Packing up to leave campground here in Milton, WV, Friday morning, the slide would not retract, went onto the manual did what it said, no help, called Thor everyone was congenial but could only give me dealers to call, called nearest dealer, said short of held oiled not help, called every dealer or mobile service I could find.no one could'nt or wouldn't help, called Thor again they called the local dealer on my behalf but got the same answer I did ? Today a mobile guy finally came and disconnected. the motors on the slide, but when trying to push it in it kept binding and making a noise, so we are still here and don't know how we are going to get home ?

Sorry I'm no help with your problem but please post back if you figure out how to get it in. My Thor ACE 30.2 stripped out the gears on the slide and is currently stuck in and waiting for the dealer to gets parts in to fix it. I would love to know how to get it in if it ever happens again with it out.

There are 2 of us that I know of on the forum that have had code 8 issues with slides.

My code 8 was caused when a slide motor came unplugged during the shakedown cruise. Like you I was unable to manually retract the slide, however, unlike you I had a mobile tech get me going again in 15 minutes the following morning.

If I remember correctly the other code 8 was caused by a weak slide motor. In that case the individual had to remove the motors from the slide before they could push the slide in and then reinstall the motors so they could get the coach back to their dealer for service.

In both our cases the override would not work because the slide would jam because one side was coming in further than the other because of one motor not working properly.

Have you talked to Lippert about your particular problem? Their number is 574-534-0001. Since the slide warranty is through them they may be able to assist quicker.
