If you have a full wall slide out, talk to me. We just purchased a Fleetwood with a full wall slide and we're having some problems. Just wondering if anyone else out there is having problems. If so, what? And how was it fixed?
Kathy: welcome to the forum. Everyone must be sleeping off the turkey.
We bought a new class A and we were told by many people to stay away from the full wall slides because they are relatively new.
We have a 3 slide and already had one of the slides adjusted within 2 months.
Hopefully you have a good dealer that takes care of customers.
Well, we brought the coach home. Of course everybody wanted to see it, so in and out the full wall went. Prefectly fine. No problems. First trip out, get to our destination and the wall won't move. Dead, no hum like it wants to move or anything. We purchased from Tom Johnson, Concord, NC. Absolutely wonderful folks..... so far. They sent a tech to us. He discover the "box" was bad. Came back the next day with a new one, replaced and all fixed. Ok, so now we're ready to return home. Wall goes in, no problem. Get home, want to put the wall out to unload some things. Same problem.... won't move. Good thing it got stuck in instead of out, right. Fleetwood made full wall slides available on all their models for 2007. I figured that if they did that, they weren't having many problems. Wouldn't take the risk if too many problems. So, what's ya think?
Usually if you have a brain problem on slides it is because something is drawing too much power and the fuse on the board is too large or your batteries aren't putty out enough juice and the system is getting too hot. It could be that Fleetwood has recieved some bad boards. If the next one burns out again, take the unit in and see if they can find why the motor is pulling to much power. Could be bad motor or the slide drags just enough to overheat the relay on the board.
My father in-law has a 2006 Fleetwood Excursion with the full wall slide. On one of his first trips he couldn't get the slide to retract. The bedroom TV slides out in front of the full wall slide. The TV locks into travel position. The lock makes a safety switch, which if not made prevents the full wall slide from retracting. After a phone call, he was told to check this lock. It was not pushed in fully. After pushing it in the rest of the way, the full wall slide retracted!
