Flush Floor Slideout

For optimum performance, the slideout system requires full battery current and voltage. Although the system is almost maintenance free, actuate the room once or twice a month to keep the seals and internal moving parts lubricated.

For long-term storage, it is recommended the room be closed (retracted).

Troubleshooting the flush floor slideout; refer to the general troubleshooting checklist before proceeding.

Electric Operation

Install transit bars (if so equipped) on the slideout room during storage and transportation.

Extending/retracting the room

  1. Level the unit.
  2. Main Power switch at stepwell (locations may vary) must be ON.
  3. Verify the battery is fully charged and hooked up to the electrical system.
  4. Remove the transit bars (if so equipped) if extending the slideout, and install them if retracting the room for travel.
  5. Press and hold the IN/OUT switch in the OUT position until the room is fully extended and stops moving. Hold the switch in the IN position to retract the room.
  6. Release the switch, which will lock the room into position. If the slideout switch is held after the room is fully extended or retracted, the control will sense that the room has stopped and will shut the motor off after a few seconds.

Manual Operation for the flush floor slideout

Locate the crank extension under the inside of the frame (Fig. 1 and 2). Attach a standard fifth wheel landing gear crank handle, a ¾” socket and ratchet, or drill and nut driver. Rotate the extension clockwise to retract the slideout and counterclockwise to extend it. DO NOT attempt to disengage the motor as the actuator is “manual ready”.


  • Always disconnect battery from system prior to manually operating system. Failure to disconnect battery can cause electricity to back feed through the motor and cause serious damage to the system as well as void the warranty.
  • Use EXTREME CAUTION when extending/retracting the room using the manual override feature. The gears can be stripped out if the room is manually retracted/extended to its fullest extent and the operator continues to rotate manual override. Damage can also occur to the slide components, slide room structure or trim components. Damages due to misuse of the manual override feature will void any and all claims to the Limited Warranty.

Schwentke In-Wall Slideout System

The in-wall slideout system requires no maintenance or adjustments. This system has two vertical columns with a drive motor located at the top of each column. The right and left motors are synchronized by a circuit board.

Do not operate the switch after the room is fully extended or retracted as damage can occur to the motor and/or switch.

To operate the slideout using a wireless remote (if so equipped):

  • Press the on/off button to power on the remote.
  • Press the corresponding button of the slideout you want to operate.
  • Press and hold the (extend/retract) arrow button to move the room in or out.
  • Press the on/off button once more to power off the remote.

ALWAYS allow the controller to stop both motors before releasing the switch button. DO NOT try to time the end of the stroke by releasing the button early.


Do not work on your system unless the 12-volt DC (auxiliary battery) and 120-volt AC electrical systems (shore line power cord) have been disconnected.

This slideout system requires very little maintenance. It contains a pre-lubed bearing that is lubricated when the room is moved in and out. Do not spray oil or grease on the rails while the room is extended.

Troubleshooting the in-wall slideout system

Checking Fuses:
The in-wall slide requires a minimum 30-amp fuse. Check the load center for blown fuses and replace any if necessary. If the fuse blows immediately upon replacement, there is a problem with the wiring to the in-wall slide control box. A qualified service person should be called to check and repair it.

Check both inside and outside for possible obstructions. Also, check for smaller objects that may be wedged under the floor or in the sides of the unit. Remove any obstructions before proceeding.

Error Codes:
Refer to the error codes section for codes and instructions on how to locate the in-wall slide controller.

Low Voltage:
The in-wall slide controller can operate with as little as 8 volts; however, with lower voltages, the amperage requirement is greater. Check the voltage at the controller and if it is lower than 11 volts, it is recommended that the battery be placed on a charger until it is fully charged. It may be possible to “jump” the RV battery temporarily to extend or retract the room. Consult Customer Service before attempting to “jump” the auxiliary battery.
Only 1 Side Moving: The slide room has a separate motor to operate each side of the room. If only one side is moving, with another person’s assistance, press the switch to extend or retract the room while pushing the non-moving side in the appropriate direction. On larger rooms it may be necessary to have 2 or more people pushing the room. Non-moving side moved manually: Try to push the non-moving side in and out. If a motor shaft has broken it will be possible to move that side of the room several inches by hand. Larger rooms may require several people to push. Debris in the rack: Check all 4 gear racks on the side of the room for debris.

Status LEDs lights:
Locate the slide controller for the slideout in question. Check the status LED lights while pressing the slideout direction switch (in both the extend and retract mode).
