A guide to your Jayco RV: How to use the electric slide out

6th Oct 2021

You’ll find that some Jayco RV’s are fitted with an electric slide out, to maximise your RV interior space.

With access to additional living space through the switch of a button, this functional add-on is perfect for families or couples who just need that extra bit of space.

The slide out is a feature in Silverline, Expanda Caravan, some Journey Caravan models, Optimum Motorhomes.

In this video, Chris will be demonstrating how to use the electric slide out fitted in a 24.75-4 Silverline Outback Caravan.

Step-by-step guide to using the electric slide out:

Step 1

The slide out is operated by a 12V system.

Make sure your 12V battery switch is turned on prior to using the slide out.

Step 2

To begin operating the slide out, simply push and hold the switch down until the slide out is completely extended.

Step 3

Make sure you hold the button down for 3 seconds after the slide out is completely extended. This also applies for when you are bringing the slide out back in.

This will reset the motors to allow your slide out to function correctly every time.

Step 4

Before sliding in the bed, you need to make sure that the bolster is flipped over on top of the mattress.

Lift the bed to ensure there is nothing in the way of the slide out.
