Couch Slide

Anyone had to work on the couch side slide on their Lexington? Any tips on accessing it?

Job done and what a job it was. Anyone needing tips let me know. Works like a charm now.

Wha did you do to it? Mine snapped off one of the roller bearing guides, still seems to function without it though.

DH says put it back on as it will twist and jam. Ours had broken 11 sequential teeth off the spur gear and they were stuck in the rack.

Did you happen to identify the slide manufacturer? Is there an installation / parts manual available?

Lippert and none of any use. Luckily DH is a skilled tradesman and willing to tackle almost anything. The replacement gear was just over $50 but I wouldn't want to guess that the labour would have been. All done and working great now though.

I looked at the Lippert slides, mine doesn't look like any of them. I think, after some research, that I have a Power Gear system, at least the tracks and drive system looks like theirs.
