Yes; another slide question

I am 1,900 miles from home, in Bismarck, ND and worrying about my kitchen slide. Upon extending, it shakes like a wagon wheel going over a cobblestone road. When it comes in, it does so smoothly. Not broken yet, but sure sounds like it is on the way. I have a 2012 390 BH. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hank

My kitchen slide was doing that last weekend. Come to fine out that my slide topper was "grabbing" in the middle. So as the topper was rubbing and trying to climb over the top of the edge of slide, slide would bounce. Second topper thats been on there mind you. First one wore from the rubbing. Check it out on yours. Maybe all that it is.

Are you continuously holding down the out button?

I notice if I stop while sliding mine does that.

If possible have someone push the out button while you look at it from the outside. You might see something that would be causing it.

Make sure nothing is bindind especially underneath. Have you lubricated the slide guide underneath. There are 2 gears on each end of the timing rod. If they bind the ends will bind and bend the shaft and you will be totally screwed. Believe me I learned from experience. Do Not force anything.

There are three grease zerts on the timing bar. Mine were bone dry. Also lube the gears and slides and seals. This all makes a big difference on a healthy slide mechanism but yours could be broken don't force it like Marty said it will make a mess.

Thank's for the advice Phil. I know where the zeros are, but as for the gears, how do you grease them?

Zerks? Well anyone that knows me knows I'm one step from illiterate. Any way Hank I use these products in the slide. I use the gear lub in the channel that the gear runs on. Also treat all the seals and white nylon roller the slide slides on. I greased the zerks all six and treated the seals and lubed the gears all at the same time. It made the slide smoother than it ever was. Not sure which did the most but they all needed it. Click image for larger version
