Default slide out stuck

I have an '07 Keystone Springdale. The slideout is stuck in the in position. There were no noises or anything that would make me think anything was wrong. It is just making the clicking noise that you hear when the slide is either all the way in, or, all the way out.

Is your battery bully charged? Do you have a lock on it when its in to keep it from sliding out?

hey jason,
so yours is making a clicking noise, but will not move? that sounds like the clutch is what is making the noise. can you manuely crank it out? are the travel locks off or removed? is there anything that may have been caught against the slideout when it was brought in last? for more timely help come into the campfire chat and we will see what we can figure out. i will be in n out of there all day....especially this afternoon when the baseball game and the race are on tv.

hey lee, great minds think alike! lol

Default still stuck

batteries good and fully charged. No lock outs that I know of on this unit. Nothing in the way of slide when it was moved. I have no exprience with a slide out prior to this. I looked for a manual way of cranking it out but I couldn't get anything to move. There is one electric drive motor that is mounted adjacent to the rear track. It looks like it drives a jack screw that forces the slide out with the help of a connecting rod that turns and keeps the two sides in sync.

ok yes that is where the motor and gearbox are. when you press the extend button you are heaing the relay click. there may be a fuse that goes to the motor itself that could be bad. do y ou have any electrical expieriance? i may be able to talk ya thru it if ya do.

I do not hear any sort of clicks or anything out of the ordinary. The unit is in the same spot that I have opened and closed the slide before. My wife closed the slide and wanted to reopen it right away. That is when it just started clicking as if it were all the way out already. And no, I really do not have any real experience w/ elctrical

go to your breaker panel/dc fuse box and check to see if there is like a 15 or 20 fuse for the slideout that is blown. thats where i'd start,

Default no fuse

I looked in panel and nothing is labled for slide. It seems it would have its own dedicated fuse(?).All the fuses are labelled.

yeah it should have its own fuse. it may be one that has 2 threaded posts with nuts over the wire lugs. it will take a meter to test that one, or a 12vdc test light. with out that you may not bable to find it.....by the way i am on campfire chat if you would like more immediate responces lol

Did your wife close it past the stops? Try forcing it out by hand while she holds the button.
