Main Slides start and stop

I'm in a 2015 36FB and have been traveling for about six months each year. Over the past month we have had trouble with our main slides. They start and run a foot or two out and then stop. After a few seconds of pause we restart them and they get another foot or so and stop again. I believe that we have the Lippert Electric Through Frame System. Does anyone have experience with this type of probme with electric slides?

Follow the Hot lead from the Hydraulic pump motor down to the Auto-Reset Breaker and replace said breaker with an 80 amp breaker.
This has been an ongoing issue for over 10 years. Lippert has a paper out about it, but I don't have a copy.

I saw your earlier post on the 80amp Auto-reset Breaker. Since I only got manuals for electric slides on the two main slides I wasn't sure if this applied. I don't see any hydraulics connected to the main slides but of course, I can't see the motor and actuators either. I'll follow your advice since I now have the same start/stop issue with my Level Up system!!

Unless you've got something that none of us have seen, your main slides are hydraulic and work off the same pump and system as the level up. I would do as Michelle suggests. Go onto the battery compartment and trace the power lead back from the pump motor and replace the relay with an 80 amp one.

To my knowledge, Redwood never built electric main slides.

Level up and he large two sided slide use the hydrolic pump on my redwood RL 38. I agree with everyone its the breaker inline with the pump. Mine will do the same thing if its cold out , never been a problem if its warm. Also you may want to make sure you have shore power when moving the slides (with the converter on) . low voltage from the batterys is often a issue. If your dry camping you can use the truck 12vdc power with it running to help keep the batterys up to full charge. its also possible if you have the inverter running the coach battery are low after a long drive.

Any chance you have a link to purchase the 80 amp breaker?

I am not seeing an auto re settable type in the 80 amp size. The 50 amp is a Bussmann CBP 50BA. Could be that the connections are not tight and/or the breaker is weak. Replacing with another 50 amp might help.

You will probably have to enlarge the cable lugs to fit the terminals on the larger breaker.
Just did this mod to a neighbors Montana who was having the same issue.
