slide cable broke

I want to thank MMNSC(Marty)for his help working with Jim and I to get the full wall slide closed.Was unable to get cable repaired so we rounded up some ablebody campers and pushed the slide in by hand headed home to NJ.Now to make arrangements to get it back to factory because the dealer has no clue on fix

Glad to see you guys got on the road. I assume CoachNet was not able to repair.
Safe travels.
Marty

No,they would have to piece out cable and not sure it would hold so we opt to just push in by hand and hope it stays

Do you have slide lock? If so, put them on the slide to make sure it stays in.

If you do not want to stop an repair you should at least stop and order slide locks. At this point you are now a danger to yourself and others on the road. Your next post may be my slide fell out!

I would stop at the first Lowe's or Home Depot and get them to cut a 2x4 to the correct length to use for slide locks. That would end the unexpected slide movement.

Stop by Lowes or HomeDepot and have them cut some 2x4's to the length required when the slide is all the way in. Put several on each side and lock the in with with wood wedges (they sell them in packages for shimming). That will keep the slide in until you can get it fixed.
I had to do that when my sofa slide kept drifting out while driving.

PM and I will share some other news.
