Marty,
Very happy to hear that you were able to get your slide fixed and still make it out for your trip- even though a few hours late. Can't wait to hear about your trip and slide repair at the rally.
Safe travels.
Tom

Marty, Glad you got it fixed and that you are on your trip. The way things seem to be progressing, we are all going to have our own special talents on fixing slides! We will have to create a mobile team to fix others, or we can hold a "slide fixing" rally somewhere. How about Florida in the winter? LOL. Craig

Wow, what a story! Glad that you got to go on your vacation and post an update here.

Maybe I didn't read your post correctly, but what prevents this from happening again and why did this happen to begin with? Hate to see this happen again, right before another vacation.

Hi my
The door on the entertainment unit popped open as the slide was going out. Surprisingly the door was not damaged as it was only a split second. The movement must have causef one tooth on the gear to jump and it was totally down hill from there

Marty,
That happened to us on our '08 coach. The door on the cabinet where the clothes washer goes popped open when we were extending the slide. It ripped the door off the hinges but the slide was not damaged (thankfully)! After that, we wrap a piece of Velcro though the handles to hold the doors closed. As a precaution, we do the same with our new coach. I see that your experience was a little more costly in terms of repairs and aggravation. Glad to see you fixed it in time to go on your vacation.
Tom

We put child locks on the cabinets in the bedroom just to keep them from opening, tore one door part way off one time, but was able to fix.

We have now put a small bungee cord around all door that might pop open and effect the slides. Trip is starting well and now at stop #2.

I have a buddy with a Berkshire that needs the timing gear for the kitchen slide. Do you have Jamie's number at Equalizer you spoke with and the rough cost of the hardware?

Thanks

Jamie's extension at Equalizer is 339. I don't have the phone number but you can find it on the Equalizersystems.com website. The parts were about $100 for the shorter one and about $125 for the longer one. The shipping for overnight delivery wae about $130. Depending one how desperate you are the shipping could be less. You need to talk to Jamie to make sure what you need as the kitchen slide might have a slightly different
