Hey Jfrauts MM1vet here with same problems as you know. But now a new one. I lost motor #1 on the slide with slide out. This will be 3rd motor in a year. I was in a rv park in roaring spring texas park was empty but for me. Then rhe torrential rain hit. Now no cell or wifi at camper had to drive 3/4 mile to office for service. Ok been talking daily to warranty manager MIKE. can not spell or saw last name correctly. Foundout my warranty ended 9/28/14 but with all problems he will cover. After 2 days of being flooded in rv stuck because roads out were mud and sand. How did i close slide? Well i disconnected motor 1 wire from controller. My wife ran button inside I went out and leaned and pushes the end with bad motor. Now i have broken fused back all the way from the bottom to 2 from the skull. It hurt but we got it in. Braced with wood reinstalled motor 1 wire. Wirh wires in motors lock but i was not taking any chances. Now we got out of there and am in park outside forth worth tx. TRES RIOS. Mike F/R has a dealer here MCclains and he will overnight motors to him and have mobile come replace motors. Hopefully it happens by Tues. I have to be at Pittsburgh VA hospital by 17th for doc appt. So cutting it close because i can not drive 14 hours a day. So i am grateful that Mike at F/R is being so helpfull and I think he really cares and is sorry for all the problems. And now my wife has had it she is really upset and we all know what it is like when wife is not happy. I need lots of poitive energy and thoughts sent my way so we can get repairs and safely get to pittsburgh

MM1vet I really feel for you and your better half, when it rains it really pours !!!! Hope you get this worked out and your back is OK after all these problems you are having. I have put mine away for the winter and don't want to think about it until spring when it goes in for the slide gear bracket replacement.Good luck and kept posting progress Cheers. John

Yea well this is our home now so problems like this are very disruptive. It has been a real learning experience starting fulltiming in July and what it takes to keep your home in running shape.

Also jfrauts do not just put in rivets without having core problem fixed. I was mechanical contractor for 20 years after navy. Those are hefty 3/8 sheet metal screws and won't just back out. There is something causing a big force on them when slide goes in. Make sure alignment of slide is done or you will be burning up motors and seeing rivets tear out.

Thanks for the heads up USNMM1 I am wondering why I didn't just put some money into my old Glendale Royal Classic and wouldn't have these problems. Oh well hind sight is 20-20 hopefully we get these things worked out
