We have a 2011 ST26BH, we have used it 1 season already and love it, but just got back from our first trip out this season and the slide had a problem coming in...When pushed on it along with the button to get the other side to come in it worked. going out is totally fine...We have looked through all the papers that came with the trailer and found a trouble shooting flow chart for the slides. Our conclusion is that we need bigger motor amperage. Has anyone else had any problems with this? because today is a holiday we haven't gotten to talk to the dealership yet, just wondering if ours is a lemon, or if it is an issue that others have had too. My worry is that the dealer will just replace the motor that is broken and not up the amps like the flow chart suggests, then next year when our warranty is up it will break again.

I had a problem with mine doing that, lubed the tracks top and bottom both sides. That fixed it. You might try that it's an easy fix, if it works.

PNR,
Are there instructions anywhere on where exactly to lube or how often or what type of grease to use.

Thanks,
Jim

Have not had this issue. Please let us know the dealerships findings. The amperage issue I am guessing is from an error code generated by the module?
As for greasing the tracks I was under the impression no grease is nessecary in the tracking. If you use it for a short term fix it may be a pain trying to clean it back out...

I used blaster overhead garage door lube, it don't leave an oily residue. It dries and is not messy. Worked for me.

Does CR recommend this as the solution to that error code then?

I don't know what cr recommends . I do know what fixed the problem. Gears of all types need some lubrication to prevent binding.

I have the 2010 29QB - also with slide problems. At first it was lazy now it's completely unoperable. I took it to the dealer who advised that the single roller bracket was bent causing the motors and gears to be mis-aligned causing buckling and eventual disintegration of the slide. I now need to spend $2500 to have the slide removed and completely rebuilt, then re-installed with proper, evenalignment. New rollers (I apparently Ijust have one roller on my slide whereas the new units have 5 rollers). The slide is a nice option but I'm wondering why Crossroads can't made the slides completely foolproof - it's not that complicated of a technological breakthrough in my opinion.

Crossroads dosn't make the slide Lippert does. They say no lube needed. I lube twice a year with wd-40. I would check all electric conections first also check to make sure battery has full charge. If under warrenty have your dealer fix.
