Slipping Slideouts

November 14, 2012
Filed under RV Tech Q&A

We have a 2004 Providence motorhome with four slideouts. The bedroom slide is tilted forward causing closure difficulty because it is rubbing against the wall. Could you provide insight as to what may be causing this problem and how to repair it?

It could be that a track or guide has come loose or bent, or other parts are misaligned. If you are handy, you might save some money by carefully checking the sliding mechanism of the bedroom slide. Otherwise take it for an inspection by a competent repair technician to determine what is wrong.
