Chris,
I was on a trip and at a campground when mine went out. I was able to get a mobil RV tech to come to me and he diagnosed the problem as the motor/gear box. I got in touch with Randy at Forrest River and they sent me a replacement. Had the mobil tech return and install the unit.

kherm,
As Phil mentioned, I would look around your coach and make sure that they are not hidden in a closet somewhere. If they are not there, contact your dealer and tell him that you don't have the slide locks and that he should get them to you.

Tom

We did not have a good experience with the dealership and yes we purchased brand new! We are currently looking at trading ours in. Although we love everything about it. The color is beautiful dark wood inside. We feel like it's been in for repairs more then we have used it. We had a trailer and Truck before thinking that might be the way we need to go.

Slide(s) question

Kherm, don't give up on it just yet. Most coaches have bugs to work out. I know mine did. Once the bugs are out, you will enjoy it a lot.

I had my bunk slide motor go out also. Mine was a broken shaft actually.

Thank you, we will consider your advise and give it some time. We purchased well before we retire in hopes to work all this out. Still have lots of years to work. Time is just limited for these fixes. We do love traveling and have met some great people along the way!

X2!! Once the bugs are worked out you will really enjoy the coach. We had kitchen slide problems with our '08 and with the bunk slide motor on our '14. Forest River stands behind their product and will make things right- that is why we bought a second one.

Hi all. Kherm don't give up. Last year I felt the same way ready to trade but this past March I took my rv back to the factory and many things were fixed including a creeping kitchen slide. My slide is still creeping but I think I have a leak because when I retract it I now Hear a leaking but can not see.
I emailed Randy today to find solutions. I went to the Tampa rv show this past winter and saw many new units but I like my rv and I am now making it mine with modifications.
This forum has also been a big help with feedback. Time is valuable especially if you are still working but if you really like your rv it is worth having Randy and his team work out the bugs.

E-Mail Randy. Mitch works for Randy. You will get a quicker response by e-mail.

Thanks Debbie I will try emailing Randy were in California. We don't have a lot of choices on taking in for repairs. We do love our coach funny your message just came in right after my Husband and I agreed we need to give it thru next year. We have a trip to Sturgis planned for next year! Although it's only a 2012 we have had many problems! Would be nice to go thru one summer and just enjoy it! The slides just make us a little concerned would hate to get stuck somewhere. Although we would be comfortable!😄
