Lippert Schwintek Slide Working, but question

Hello, my Schwintek slide is working fine! (rare post). But want to check if the below describes normal Controller behavior. I've looked at previous slide posts, but the ones I found describe the error codes, and this behavior does not look like that. Here goes...
During extension/retraction, both red and green lights are flashing quickly in unison.
Then when slide is fully extended / retracted, both red and green go solid lit for ~20 seconds, then both lights turn off. Is this normal operation?

Yes. See the Lippert manual for more information.

The red and green lights flashing together show the controller is able to keep the motors synchronized. The steady lights show the motors are stalled and the controller is removing the current synchronization mode and zeroing-out the memory.

Biggest headaches we've had are the Schwintek Slides. I'll never buy another RV of any kind, make or model with those slides.

I hear you, the last coach we owned also had a Schwintek slide, and it broke. We had to replace it with the same weak design. Now our current coach has the Schwintek as well, but slide is much smaller. Coach options were limited since we wanted a 30 ft Class-C coach with ~100 cu.ft of outside storage and 8k towing capacity. That left only a few models to choose from. I wish I had heard about the Vroom slide system back then before I replaced it. It's a drop-in replacement instead of Schwintek. From what I've seen, the Vroom has heavy duty tracks and built like a gearbox. There are a few forum threads here that talk about it.
