Hope this helps.

As someone whose bunk gears stripped too, I really really really wish FR would have put the hydraulic mechanism on the bunk slide. That's a big slide and I'd just feel more comfortable, having had it fixed once already

I agree and I actually wish all the slides would be hydraulic.

Yea, the slide mechanisms seems to be the same.
My wardrobe side is the cable system.
But it is only a small slide for the wardrobe.

I had the impression that on the BH that it was a much larger side with the bunks in it.

The bunk/wardrobe slide on the BH is actually pretty large. It is the full length of the bunks and also the full length of the bedroom where the drawers and tv / upper cabinets are.

Sounds like my slide out is about half the size of the bunks.
I was surprised the motor had a problem since it is so small>
This is the whole thing.

I have a 2014 Berk and my gearbox broke one week out of warranty. I did some research on the problem and posted it here:
FR3 Slide Out Issue

I am going to carry a spare motor/gearbox incase it goes out again while on travel. I am also going to try adding the motor controller ... assuming my Berk does not have one, if it does then I am going to adjust it way down.

Just had this problem on my 2011 Berk! Tried to open slide and back cab door had opened above washer/dryer on a quick stop and the cable snapped when I tried to open. Lesson learned to check slides for any obstruction or it will get costly
