Thanks for updating so we all learn from it. All units have a few bugs to work out like new homes. Once the issues are addressed then life is good.

Thanks again, Rich.M and all who have helped. Still confused about the info about how long to hold the slide button down after extension/retraction complete ... The user manual says release after 1-2 secs but others on the forum say 10 secs or so ... Might it vary between whether Forester or Solera or Sunseeker MBS? And - on another note - what exactly is the difference between these 3 anyway???

I do the 1-2 second hold I saw on the lippert video. We seem to be in good sync after 75 to 100 cycles so far. We don't use a toad so slides go in and out daily when we camp. Forester, Solera, and Sunseeker are all the same coach and vary only by trim and options. Solera was the original line that split into Forester and Sunseeker. Forester has most options/upgrades included. Sunseeker is more basic but you can add the options you prefer rather than bundle. The MBS catagory was started on this forum to consolidate the posts .

Question, which slide-outs are used in the Forester 2400's, Schwintek or Lippert? Both have manual ways to retract.

An update that is not really an update.: our brand new 2017 Forester MBS 2401W is still stuck in the storage facility with the slide out and nothing but conversations with Camping World in Katy, TX (the dealer) and Forest River (the manufacturer). No deliverables. So disappointed in the service ethic of today's American companies. The controller failed and people are promising things that they aren't delivering. I am a healthcare leader and I'm so glad these companies and people aren't charged with the responsibility to take care of human lives. Service matters.

can't they send a tech to disengage the motors so it can be pushed in and moved? There are instructions on the net if they don't know how.

Download the PDF to your computer; then go to the library and upload it.
A Moderator will review the upload and approve it for the board.
