We just got a 2501 with 3 slides. Can anyone tell me if they have 2 or 1 motor? Also the trim doesn't go flush to the wall in the front slide. In the bedroom the lower right corner there is a small gap where you can see daylight at the very bottom . Is this normal?

Schwintec In-wall slides (meta tracks on the SIDE of the slide room) all have two motors. One for each side. Trim may no go flush because there is bulb seal back there....so it physically can't sit flat since there i stuff behind it.

As for daylight, no that's not always normal. It's not necessarily a bad thing...might just be a seal out of place.

When we put the slides out I understand from posts that we should then hold the button so that it continues to click for 10 sec or so? Should the clicking stop? Didn't know if it continued to click if there was a problem? We had a quicker walk through on our RV as we had a different brand class C before and didn't go into detail on the slides. Thanks for such quick reply!

Nooooooo. If it is clicking that is a below floor slide. You DO NOT hold the button down on that one.

Only hold the button down for a Schwintec in-wall slide. It is easy to tell which is which. The In-Wall will have (2) metal tracks on the exterior side wall of the slide. one high and one low. The bottom of the slide is smooth. Those do not click it just sounds like a motor humming.

The below floor slide will have nothing on the exterior sidewall of the slide The slide rams are on the bottom of the slide floor. That one is a clutch system, as soon as it clicks you stop.

Your bedroom slide is an IN-wall, the wardrobe slide is an indwell...I think the front slide is still a below floor slide. We never flipped that one due to seatbelt testing, but we're working on that now.
