Marv,

What are BCD switches.

Readjusted manifold pressure from 20lbs to 100 lbs. The living room slide had not been used while set at 20lbs. I set slide pressure at 15 lbs.

Default Slide with loss of air

Bill:

I am sorry I dated myself. I didn't mean BCD switches, I meant DIP switches.

Marv left out answer BCD stands for Binary Coded Decimal. We use a lot of them on our PLC's thats Programmable Logic Controllers. We couldn't run the Beer factory without them.

Default Slide with loss of air.

Hi Bill,

We have been following this thread with great interest. As fairly new BB owners (8/09) we have questions about just about everything. So far (God willing and the creeks don't rise) no real problems. We do so appreciate this forum.

What is this better product you used on the air seal patch?
How did he apply the patch?

Lloyd!! If you are out there...I have 2 grease fittings on my livingroom slide. What kind of grease is recommended. The bedroom slide was a little slow moving. We used a silicone with teflon on it and that seemed to help. Is there a better product out there?

Doc&Linda,

I do not know what glue my mechanic used. I will ask. He cleaned air seal surface and coated surface. He waited for it to dry and then repeated process. Having thought about this, I think if there is a next time, I will try gluing thin rubber patch over hole. What type of rubber to patch over hole and type of glue to use could use some discussion. A 3m glue at the auto parts store was recommended by an employee at a large rv store in Fort Worth. He said that when dried it stayed flexible.
That maid sense. I do not know exact name of glue.

Where are the grease fitting on your slide?

Sounds like a bicycle inner tube patch and gluing procedure.

Default Slide grease fittings

Hi, The slide grease fittings are located on a red (bake-a-lite/ceramic ?) rectangle mounted at the back of the slide mechanism. That's from the inside access doors located behind driver's seat and edge of kitchen. Easier to see when the slide is in. Don't know if that is clear or not. You can call me at 573-225-6997.
Question. You said the mechanic unscrewed the magnetic stop so that the slide went back out without problem. Where is that stop?

Marv,

Remove mattress and frame deck. As you move slide inside a couple of inches, you will notice a small sensor move to the left (toward foot end of bed) of small slender stop.
When you try and move slide back out side, the sensor will not move back to the right of stop. Unscrew stop and remove. Move slide out and replace stop.

You mentioned two dip switches. If I understood you correctly, these switches override stop allowing sensor to pass back past stop to its normal location. I did not understand where dip switches are located.

If this is not clear, my telephone number is 817-988-2451.

Doc&Linda,

I am confusing myself on who I am responding to. The above reply was intended to your question along with some information from Marv in an earlier part of this thread. I guess this happens as you get older.

Default Slide Seal

CCW also repaired my slide foward slide with super glue. FYI there is a third grease fitting on the center rail of the slide. It is only accessable when the slide is in the service position or foward.
