The slideout on my motorhome goes out but will not go back in

by Anonymous

I have a 2003 Fleetwood Excursion 39L that the galley slide will go out but not in. Any ideas?

ANSWER: Greetings thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

I am assuming that all of the other slideouts on your motorhome are working properly. Your problem could be something as simple as a bad switch for that particular slideout, or it could be a bad slideout control box (the electronic brain). There are not a lot of things that a do-it-yourselfer can do to repair a slideout problem, but I do have a couple of suggestions for you.

1. First make sure that the slideout is fully in the out position. Press the out button and see if the slideout moves out a little further; if it does try to retract it again. If that does not work then move on to the next step.

2. If you feel comfortable, you may want to remove one of the switches that operate one of your working slideouts and use it in place of the switch that is on the broken slideout. If the slideout works using the good switch then you know that you have to replace the switch.

If none of the above works, you are probably going to have to have the slideout diagnosed and repaired by a qualified RV Technician.

I Hope that the above information was helpful to you.

2003 Discovery Slide-Outs
by: Anonymous

I had a similar problem on my 2003 Discovery 39L: I found out I could move the connector from a working slide out to the one that would not work. What I found was the connectors are not soldered into the board. I removed all connectors, removed the slide out control board and soldered all connectors on the backside of the control board. I have not had any problems since.
