Another Slide Issue
I have been having an issue that the curb side main slide does not want to come in. After the street side comes in, the other just stalls. In the past if I wait for a few minutes, it would come in making me think it is the breaker issue. I have yet to find the breaker on my unit.
However, I looked under my slide and found the adjuster nuts on the hydraulic ram in an odd position. The angle bracket is not clamped stationary and the nuts are far apart letting this bracket float on the ram. I think I will run the nut back to the bracket and the outside and inside nut should create a jam nut situation on each side of the angle bracket. I also believe that the third nut should limit the travel on closing correct?
I have searched the forums and have received some good information about the slide but have another question. I believe part of my problem could be that the slide is actually over extending. That is because I have a wear mark on the inside wall paper where the filler molding is rubbing (the molding is a little cocked from installation however). If the slide can be over extended, would that not cause a bind coming back in that could cause the breaker to engage? Is an over extension possible just from the nut on the ram or does the square tube limit the travel? This slide has normally raised up as it comes in from the bottom. I think that is normal.
Can I limit the travel out by just adjusting the Ram nuts?
I have also heard both sides of the issue of lubing the tubes. I thought I had read not to lube them. Where do we stand on using something like Lithium Lube on them?
