All I'm seeing is your slide motor and mechanism.

FYI: better check the bolts under there.... They tend to loosen and allow the slide gears to slip down and you can't work the bed slide.... Trust me - I know !!!!

So that's what it is! I thought it may have been an automatic bed lifter that I wasn't aware of.

Thanks my RV brothers!

I second tightening them or you'll hear the dreaded skip.

Definitely check them, our slide actuator sheared its bolts off and had to be totally disassembled to get the slide back in. Not fun to do with no AC hooked up in NC summer heat/humidity. That was on our maiden trip last August.

I've tightened mine at least 5 times, made several "mods" and the damn thing still slips. It's a POS mechanism, IMHO.

Boowho??

I believe that is the infamous Widget-Arm on the Maniform.

I would replace the nuts with Nylock then no more tightening required. There are different types of nuts, some with the nylon insert in the middle and. Ore common with Nylock on the end.
