I have a 2006 34 SOD. I have had good service from the unit and Airstream. I have replaced the slide controller 2 times due to lightening and an accidental short while checking the wiring. The only other problem was a one time incident of the slide not unlocking for opening. Airstream Service said they had seen that problem, but the only thing they could think of was a poor unlocking motor ground. They cleaned the locking motor ground connections and the problem never recurred. I would recommend you call Power Gear, and give them your make, model and year, and get the latest part number for your controller. Buy a spare because Airstream does not keep them on hand and power Gear takes to weeks to ship and won't drop ship to you. With the part number you can get Camping World to order you one at considerable savings over an Airstream dealer. Through Airstream they are around $280, but cheaper through CW. We really like the slide. It easy to use. Just level up, stabilize, and open. If you will notice the gap around the edges and be sure there is ample clearance. The slide will go out and in effortless. That clearance can be adjusted by loading the stabilizers differently causing the gap to move in different directions. Think slight twist, if you will.

Slide out on 2005 Classic 30'

The key is if the stabilizer jacks are used properly, you will never have to look at the gap around the edges of the slide. The technique I use with my electric jacks are to extend them down one at a time. When you notice the body starting to rise at that jack, stop and lower that jack. As the pressure is released the body stops lowering. At that point you are providing the right amount of support to the frame, while not exerting enough to torque the frame and effect the slide.

While I never have had to do this, the slide can be opened or closed manually. I'll have to get out my owners manual and make sure I have the tools to do that.

Guskmg,

Any chance you have a pic of that control unit? Just curious.

Thanks,

Gary
