Can any body tell me why my slide when closing starts to move then stops and starts and stops until it is all the way in? could it be a weight, or a batterie problem

I would contact your dealer. Ours is in the shop, with three of the slides not working properly.

Are you talking the Electric Bedroom Slide or the Hydraulic main slides?? Bedroom - could be the adj on the controller for stopping the slide when it detects sufficient resistance.
Main slides, no controller involved, BUT you do have self resetting circuit breakers (two 50 amp in parallel). We have had a problem with our recently when morning temps were in the 40s and bringing the slides in, would stop several times. Now in warmer climate no issue. I suspect that one of my breakers is very weak or open and the cold temps make the hydraulic fluid thicker making the pump work harder thus drawing more current than a single breaker can handle. This has been a known and ongoing problem with Montanas and since the frames come from the same place.......need I say more?
Let us know what you find out.

Michelle, we had problems similar to the ones are experiencing. The fix was to rewire the battery terminal to the Trombetta and a new groundbar, perRedwood's TSB. Ours works like a charm now.

The bedroom slide on my RL is very, very slow. I always cringe when I'm retracting because I'm afraid that it will actually stop... and then what? But it always finishes. I feel lucky...

Mine was very slow as well but the factory fixed it for me. Apparently it was sagging toward the front and there was too much pressure being put on the guide rollers. Call the factory and have them look at it. Since they worked on mine it slides in like it doesn't have hardly any resistance.
