Power fluctuation when using slides

My buddy just emailed me. His new 3750 is having power turn off on coach after using slides. The back hydraulic slides. Power turns off then back on? Any ideas?

During slide operation or after slide operation complete?

There have been many posts on this issue if it strictly power to the slides. The circuit breaker isn't heavy enough to carry the pump. Do a search and you will find all the posts and the fixes.

If it's new he needs to call Keystone Customer Service, they replaced my breaker with a bigger one under warranty. If a larger breaker is needed it's always good to have Keystone do it, just in case it causes issues down the line.

Wew have a 2005 3400RL and after a few years, the slides would stop some times. If you released the switch for a couple of minutes, the process would resume. I replaced the breaker on the advice of a dealer and the problem stopped. I went to a heaver breaker to handle the longer run time and heat generated in the breaker. I have not had a problem since. Just a point to check out.
