Putting out Slideouts

Recommended Posts

A fellow camper told me the a LGI tech told him the when putting out a slideout with Swintech slides that you should toggle the out switch back and forth 7 times and on the seventh time hold the button until the motor stops after fully extended. Has anyone heard of this ?

Welcome to the forum.

I have never had Swintech slides so I don't know . What it sounds like is a variation on what I have heard to equalize the slide movement. I wouldn't think you had to do that every time.

But isn't that just to equalize the slide not every time you put them out?

That is correct, not to be done every time you are putting out the slides.  What you need to do, whether extending or retracting the slides, is to hold the switch in for a few seconds AFTER the slide hits the limits.  That will keep the slide in line without having to do the in and out sequence.  That is only in the event you lose the synchronization between the two motors.
