Use this procedure to SET the IN and OUT stops. Make sure engine is running during this procedure to ensure proper system voltage.

  1. Press and hold the IN button on the wall rocker switch. The IN stop must be set first.
  2. Move the room to the fully retracted position. Press and hold the IN button for 10 seconds after the room stops moving. Release the wall switch.
  3. Visually inspect the room seal to make certain the room is fully retracted. If it is not, repeat step 2. This procedure may need to be repeated until both sides of the slide out are fully retracted.
  4. You are now ready to set the OUT stop.
  5. Press and hold the OUT button on the wall rocker switch.
  6. Move the room to the fully extended position. Press and hold the OUT switch for 10 seconds after the room stops moving. Release the wall switch.
  7. Visually inspect the room seal to make certain the room is fully extended. If it is not, repeat step 6. This procedure may need to be repeated until both sides of the slide-out are fully extended.

NOTE:

The switch will need to be depressed and held down for 10 seconds after the room stops moving(or until you here both motors “click”) to correctly set the stop locations. This applies to both the IN stop (retracted) and OUT stop (extended). Failure to do so will cause the stops to NOT be set and the room will operate erratically and out of sync.

Slideout Repair on an 08VH

SLIDE OUT

The Slide-out failed when we were extending it. The motor continued to run in both directions but the slide did not move in either direction. The owner was able to move the slide in/out by using a crescent wrench to rotate the Slide-out’s drive shaft. The drive shaft is accessible above the Propane tank fill connection.

With the encouragement of several folks on the Yahoo View/Navion forum the owner decided to repair this himself. He stated it was easy to do, except that it was not fun having to work under the slide out – his knees were not what they used to be. Read more “Slideout Repair on an 08VH”
