Default The bedroom slide on our LXi43 is needing help

Has anyone had experience with a room slide not wanting to retract ? Or, creeping back in slowly after full extension ? The bedroom slide on our LXi43 is needing help, had the cylinder rebuilt but they are telling me it is getting pressure on both ends all the time, goes out great, coming back in a very jerky and slow. HWH says their "help line" (their definition of help and mine differ greatly) is behind and can't return calls for two weeks, that's customer service for you ! Any help is appreciated.

So the rear slide is air powered,right?
If theres air on each end of the cylinder you need to find out where the air is coming from.
Is it bypassing the piston in the cylinder? (i know its rebuilt,but stuff happens)


If the cylinder is not bypassing the control valve is bypassing,its that simple.
What kind of control valve is used?

As far as I know the only air is the seal. The cylinder is definitely hydraulic (I could tell from the leaky hoses), pretty sure it works off of the same oil supply as the levelers. The cylinder is working fine but according to the guys at the shop it's getting pressure on both ends on both the in and out cycles. Once out all the way it begins to creep back because there is pent up pressure in the cylinder. I agree that it is probably a control but because I cannot get HWH to return my calls for two weeks I don't know for sure.

I thought i read on your first post that you had an air cylinder,my mistake.
I was sure the lxi had a hydraulic slide.
But,same logic applies.

Have your hydraulic lock pins been disabled? Is there a chance one of your cylinder hose connections is actually connected to a lock cylinder hose. Just trying to cover all bases.

I'm also thinking you might be getting bound up on the seal itself . She goes out smooth that eliminates the rams I think . But you do have a extend and retract solenoid ?
