slide moving slower and slower

Been out several trips. Here in Melbourne Florida at the moment. Ive noticed the large slide seems to be retracting slower than normal??. Sounds smooth but slowing down, afraid its gonna stall and not come in at some point. Time will tell, any similar comments? All so repaired pesky plumbing leaks here and there.I ped cool: unit into ac first before activating motors slides. No codes logged.... maybe slow is the norm?..

Thanks for the video links I've seen these before. Tried to edit my last post to make some minor corrections. ?.. anyway, hopefully I have the high torque motors in the large slide and thats how they are... slow... I do plug in before extending slides as recommended. Lube has been done as well.

I just timed mine for you. The large slide takes 51 seconds to retract. Same speed out.

Thanks I just timed mine. 61 seconds in, 59 seconds out. Still feels like it's wanting to stall the last foot coming in.

Electric over hydraulic slide will always be faster than straight electric slide.

My slides seem to be moving much better since I lubed them with the recommended spray. For a while, I was having to "assist" my bedroom slide. The last few times out after the lube, it has gone in and out unassisted.

Were you able to access the lube points from inside as well as instructed on the video? I dont see how i would access them on ours.

slide problems

We have a 2013 Voltage 3795 and have had it in the shop several times because the bedroom and living room slides do not retract properly. Have had the living room floor replaced because of dragging and damage to the floor...had the bedroom slide motor replaced...the dealer said the newer motors are just not strong enough to pull those slides in...we have to stand outside and push on the slide sometimes to get it in all the way..I wish you luck with your problem...Happy camping
