I just started having a problem with the living room slide on my 2006 HR Vacationer. It has electric slides, the living room slide is a flat bottom with no rollers. When I bring the slide in once it gets to the the final close position the bottom comes in but the top tilts out. I have to grab the top of the slide and pull it in and put the slide lock on. Does this sound like a sheer pin issue? An imput?
Thanks.

If it was a sheer pin the slide would not move. I don't have a HR so don't know how your slide works, it sounds like it may be an adjustment problem.

As said above if a shear pin breaks the slide won't move. Have you used a ladder and checked to see if there is debris on top of the slide under the topper?

Could there be something on the floor, that the slide is running up on, the is tilting the top of the slide out? The other thing that could be causing the top to not come with the bottom, it some type of structural problem with the outside slide wall.

After thinking about your post I think all slides do what you say yours is doing. I don't think you are pulling the top of the slide in, if you are that is a very light slide that is balanced on something. The slides are very heavy and can not be moved by hand.

The single large slide on my older Holiday Rambler has always had the top edge of the slide contact the coach wall first followed by the bottom being snugged up to the coach wall. From inside it might appear that the top is going out. Could this be what is happening on your coach?
