SOURCE: Door will not slide automatically; emits loud beeping noise

Something similar to that was happening with our Odyssey...the beeping when you are driving whether it's ongoing or intermittent is the "safety alarm" letting you know the door is not closed. The power lock is not engaging. What I do when I get the beeping while driving is hit the Door Close button. It causes the door to attempt to engage again. To fix it...we first cleaned out the space below the side running board (kids were hiding crayons and things in there), then looked for any obstructions along the top and bottom tracks. I sprayed a lubricant along the tracks (I'd suggest the dry lube kind...I used WD40 the 1st time and had streaks of it dripping down after driving), use a lube that has a long straw to spray in small places...and spray up into the track that runs the length of the middle of the car. Manually open and shut it a few times to get the tracks lubed, then try it out.
If you press the open OR close button by remote or in the car and get movement/no noises/no beeping...then it could be the electrical circuit itself, the signal itself may be impeded...or the motor shot. Have you tried any of these suggestions before?

SOURCE: Broken power seat - cannot slide backward. Can I slide it manually?

Ck for debri or other objwcts in way of tracks Does it try to move? If so, there is an obstruction, If not trying or no sound when switch is moved, could very well be a fuse or the forward limit switch is being affected by excess forward travel. Move the switch yo back and without kinda help it. if it's trying.

SOURCE: I have no heat. the engine temperature is correct

Your blend door actuator is stripping it's gears. The actuator is part #14 in the diagram below. You may have to remove a finish panel to access the actuator. Once you can see it, turn the key on to verify this is the source of the noise.
Remove the actuator and see if you can turn the door pivot by hand. If yes, get a new actuator. A picture of the part is pasted below, and the part is available from autozone for about $36. If the door is stuck, try using a tool to twist the shaft, but don't strip the interface. If it will not turn, remove the heater box assembly to repair.

Coleman Mach 48000 series roof top A/C in my camper & recently it's been dripping heavily inside the camper. We looked at the top & inside for a clogged line & can't find anything, suggestions?

I had the same problem but it wasn't a clogged drain line, it was the gasket between the roof of the camper and the AC unit. The gasket had shrunk and pulled apart allowing rain water in. To make sure you don't have a clogged drain line when using the AC do you notice water dripping off the camper anywhere besides inside? You should have some drips somewhere on the outside.

1995 terry camper electric slide out doesn't move can you move it manually?

Yes, all campers with slide outs have a way to manually crank the slide in/out in case of motor or electrical failure. The fun part is figuring out where exactly the place to insert the tool, if you have it. Larger slides with rails typically are brave to the main frame under the slide out whereas the smaller type (bed) would be under the bed and the false floor for protection.

We have 2016 Salem by Forest River pull camper. The two slide outs and hydronic.jacks will not go in. Have checked all fuses even 12V50 amp on frame. Any ideas?

Find the motor and valve assembly. Use a meter to check voltage at the motor when you push control button. The motor runs to make hydraulic pressure anytime any button is pushed, slide or level control. If motor is not running you can go to,
and retract all with 1/8 hex wrench and drill.

What is the part called that is sewn into the bottom of the vinyl on a popup camper that attaches the vinyl to the bottom. Also where can I find this product?

Channel slide attachment or snaps. Found on line at camper world or at a local camper world retail store. You could also try to see if the manufacturer is still in operation and get it there.

How can i access the drive unit for the bedroom slide on my 2009 Forest River Flagstaff Classic Super Lite FKBSS?

If the bed is on the slide, more than likely the mechanism is under it. If not then it should be outside in the under belly.
I would check for voltage at the switch first.

How to replace lead coble on a flogstaff popup camper

There should be a metal channel running from front to back down the center if the trailer under the bottom of the trailer. There will be a pipe coming from each corner and connecting to this channel. Disconnect the four pipes from the center channel. In each pipe will be a heavy gauge spring type pusher (this is what actually raises the roof), pull each of these out of the center channel. Next you will need to remove the rear pulley from the bracket. This should be accomplished by pulling a hairpin keeper which will then allow the center clevis pin to be removed which will free the pulley. Next you will disconnect the cable from the winch drum. Now you will pull the cable free from the lower half of the center channel (If you look into the channel you will see that there is an upper and lower section). Once the cable is free from the lower section you will pull the cable free from the upper section. NOTE: The cable will be covered in grease and will be messy. Were rubber mechanics gloves or use rags to minimize the amount of grease on your hands and clothes. Now you are ready to install the new cable. Feed the cable through the upper portion of the center channel once it has cleared the rear end of the channel start to feed it into the lower channel. Now you can reinstall the lower channel push springs. This will help to determine how much cable should be in the channel. Next install the upper push springs. Now you can reinstall the rear pulley and last you can connect the new cable to the winch drum. The new cable will have a crimped lock with an oval washer at the end and another in the middle which will engage the push springs. The entire process should take about an hour and a half (rough estimate based on having a clean work shop, the proper tools and some mechanical abilities). Do NOT attempt to fabricate your own cable! It could lead to someone being seriously injured. If you need the main cable email me the year, make, model and overall length of the camper and I can get you a price.

Sometimes my slide out will not move out,try later and it does. The power cord is plugged in when I move slide out

There is an in line circuit breaker that controls the power for the slide. They are automatic resetting. Sounds like it is tripping but once it cools down it resets. They do get weak with age/use.
