Slides noisey & jerking

As if we don't have enough problems with our new Alpine 3600RS. The slides make a horrible noise when opening and closing. The kitchen slide makes a jerking noise like it is dragging on something. The bottom pulls before the top making the slid not pulling in level with the slide jerking.

DoeS anyone else have this problem?

I,m guessing you slides are hyd. driven and you have slide toppers. The hyd pressure takes the easiest path, the slide that move easiest. The slide toppers hold pressure on the top of slides while the hyd pressure push the bottom out. Personaly I use slide seal/treatment on the seals often. I also use a DRY lube on the lower roller and tracks. Dry lube to not collect dust & dirt.

No Toppers. We have only had the unit since August and it has been in the service department at Johnson RV three fourths of the time. We have used it twice. They say there is nothing wrong that they were heavy and would make noise.

I also have a 3600RS, i do notice my slides while being retracted the top and bottom arent being retracted evenly but i wouldnt say they are noisey tho. The top and bottom kinda of walk in if that makes sense, but this is my first rv with hydraulic slides. would like to hear more about your issues, either here or by PM

Possible to post a cell phone video of what you're experiencing? Something you consider excessive, might be normal. This would give forum members a chance to see/hear the same thing you are.

Is your Alpine sitting level fwd/aft & left/right? Is the hyd tank full when slide retracted about 1" from the top. Are you plug into shore power or using only battery power.

Vallboss2,

What in the world does all of this have to do with your slide being noisy and jerking?

Maybe if you address one issue at a time you'll get some help in diagnosing and repairing your problem, but to "spew" all those issues only serves to turn your thread about the slide problem into a general gripe thread and is not focusing on your slide problems (which was the center of this thread). Maybe redirecting your attention to the slide might be in order?

I'm sorry for all your problems but are you being polite to them or shouting like you are here?
It seems like the dealer should be doing something about this but there's always two stories.

If you want to repost your list of issues with your Alpine, start a new thread in the "Keystone RV Service & Warranty Issues" section. That's the appropriate place to post a combined list of all the problems. If you do decide to post that list, in all fairness, please also include what the dealership/Keystone has done to repair each of the problems. It's difficult to get a clear understanding of what is wrong if you complain (for example) about a piece of trim not being attached and when you took the Alpine in for service, they fixed that trim on the first visit. If you leave that "vital information out" it clouds the reader's conception of what your RV really looks like. So, I urge you to provide the bad, but also provide the "good" .....
