I have an '05 28RL.
I have an intermittant problem with the large slide. Sometimes it won't go in, and sometimes it won't go out. I can hear the auto c/b trip and reset. I might select 'out' and it will work, thenI select 'in' and it will trip the breaker repeatedly. Yesterday it was just the was good but out was bad.
Anybody have any ideas?

Have you lubed the mechanism? I spray the entire mechanism with WD40 once a year. This cleans the dirt out and helps lube for a shor time.

It's an electric motor that operates the slider. If an internalbearing has tightened up, you can create enough heat while operating to kick off the breaker until cooled down.

You might disconnect and see if it turns freely first.

We a 27ft 2010 Sunset Trail Travel Trailer we are having a slider issue. It started with the slider going out uneven we would then have to bring it in and try again. Our last trip we had to guide it out evenly with minor physical pressure in order to use it. Now it starts to go out and stops and won't come in. I talked to the dealership we purchased it from and they gave me a number for Lippet? I have read a few posts saying that it has cost some campers $2500 grand to fix theirs?? Does anyone have any ideas?

Our warranty for 2 years expired on June 21! I will have to call Lippet Monday. The last campout also created another problem with the air conditioner. It will only go off if the thermosat is on 85! Otherwise, it just keeps running and running...not too happy with this camper right nowl

Your A/C might be working correctly. We used to think that ours was overworking until I bought a small indoor thermometer and mounted it about the A/C thermostat. Turns out that we would set the thermostat at about 72 and then would wonder why it was so cold in the trailer. It was perception. The actual temperature in the trailer would be in the low 80's, yet it it felt cold. The A/C was thumping hard to get it down to 72 and would run continuously.

our slider is not level and you can see one side is lower than the other. We just noticed it is scraping on the linoleum. Any suggestions?

WD40 is for water displacement and is not really a lubricant. It wil provide short term improvement. Most sildes should use a dry lubricant to prevent road grime collection as they are not a greasy buildup. WD is a great product but not a true lubricant it is designed to help prevent corrision.
If the slide is not level it will bind and cause the motor to heat and trip. There can be other factors others will comment . Best of luck hopefully it will be a minor fix.

X2 on the WD-40 it is mostly acohol as you can see if you spray it and light it. It evaporates quickly but is a good cleaner. Try a dry spray lube after cleaning.
