Slide won't extend

I arrived home this morning after a 5-week trip. No problems during entire trip.
I deployed the automatic leveling jacks, which have to be down before I can extend the slide. Well, my slide won't extend for some reason. Ideas/suggestions?

Slide won't extend

I had a similar problem on my FW 24F with full slide. Factory didnít install the slide motor retaining screw and the motor popped out of itís mount. I could hear the motor turn but had to push on slide to get it out. Had to push on the outside to get it back in. Dealer had to fix it because slide was out of alignment. Hefty charge to Thor for a 3 cent screw they missed at assembly. Whew, it was under warranty.

Slide motor

I have a 2014 Hurricane 34J with a slide issue. I can not locate the slide motor - does anyone know where it is. I bought it two weeks ago and dealer is closed, internet owners manual doesnít say.
Ideas?

Both Thor and Lippert have youtube channels with a ton of interesting videos (Lippert actually has two: Lippert Components and Lippert University). Thor's youtube channel.

Thank you for the videos, I will have to see if I can find the motor and see if something is binding.

Noisy Slide

I have a Thor 29.5 Class A, 2017. With the front slide is fully retracted and I am driving down the highways of America, I hear a noise in the wall behind the driver. It sounds like a cord is slapping internally ever time I brake, accelerate, or hit a bump. Irritating. Dealership fixed it once. Then it came back and now my service manager says it's an acceptable MOTORHOME NOISE. It was fixed once, albeit for 500 miles. Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated.

My slice will not extend until jacks are down. Auto level.

when we first started this new adventure I would write a check list on proper order of setting up, helps to get in the right mindset

I agree, and I like your "checklist" idea a lot!

Now: where can I put it, so that I don't forget about it?
