Just had front and back replaced on my 2014 3051s. Dealer did an outstanding job and wholesale warranties along with Jeff from Wholesale took care of everything promptly. My slide seals properly now. Same problem lower gear with messed up teeth. CJ at barryland handled service perfectly! I know these guys get a lot of bad rap sometimes but this was my first trip to the dealer and my first warranty claim.

I'm a little concerned about this myself. I have two slide and on the main slide I here a noise sometimes like the gears maybe slipping a popping noise. I have some other warranty work that needs to be done and this is on the list.

Did the dealer give any idea of what caused the gear mess? Do you know how it was repaired ( do they have to remove slide)?

Sorry for the delay. You cant get alot of information but did get to see the old slides on the ground. The trim piece on my full body paint is white but you only see that when slide is out. Works like a charm anyway just think something may have been wrong from the factory

June 19th,2015, took MH into dealer today for the slide gear tower replacement and to replace the skylight they destroyed, Service guy said they are going to put best repairman on job and should have done in a week. Lets see how they do , been waiting since Sept 2014 for this to be completed.
