I'm not sure of what to say.  Are your slides operated by hydraulics or electric?  On our Mobile Suites, the factory suggested to have a certain "pattern" or retracting or extending the slides.  For retracting, we are to first bring in the living room/dining room slide first, followed by the kitchen slide, and lastly for the bedroom slide.  That sequence gets the hydraulic fluid from the slides back to the reservoir in the proper order and with limited air in the lines.  For extending the slides, it is just the opposite.

 Slide lock bars.  Many OEMs provide them.  Some slides need them.  Very common.

Inexpensive and safe fix:

We used them for years on one trailer.

Bill and Linda have the answer. Our Elite Suite had the same problem that was looked at and never fixed by various shops. Slide locks or a length of 4X4 wedged in between the slide and the wall will fix the problem.

We had this issue with our bedroom slide on our Montana. The RV shop replaced the hydraulic pump but that solved nothing. Turned out it was an internal leak in the hydraulic ram.
Good luck!

This may be obvious, but if you chose to use the slide locks ... you will need to add an item to your checklist ... remember to remove them before attempting to open the slide

I suppose you could get some of those large tie-down straps the truckers use and wrap around the trailer at the offending slide. Probably cheaper, but may not look as nice. It also would be much easier to remember to take it down before trying to extend the slide.

Yes, I'm kidding. While that would certainly work as a temporary fix to get down the road, it certainly doesn't qualify as a real solution to the problem. Of course, we don't have slides, so don't have that problem, and probably won't have any on the next coach, either.
