Just got my rig back from the factory after almost 5 weeks gone. The slide does work properly now, going in and out in one motion. The dealer fixed me up with a complete service, after 4,000+ miles put on going to the factory and back, and also included a complete detail.
The FR rep extended my warranty for an additional year, and they fixed everything else on my list of issues to boot!!!
I'm not thrilled with over a year of dealing with defective slide problems, but the bottom line is FR took care of all my issues. All the factory rep's I spoke with were very friendly and professional in our dealings.
The major lesson learned, contact the factory reps early on, and forget about dealing directly with the dealer for ongoing issues.
Now planning for a trip to Glacier Nat'l Park......
