3170DS Bedroom Slide Motor
I'm in a pickle and I need some help.
Our Bedroom slide stopped working only on 1 side, the side near the fridge stopped moving. I diagnosed it to the motor, the motor actually popped out of the gear track. I watched some videos from Schwintek on the Lippert slide to see how the motor easily moves up/down to remove it from the slide.
Here's my problem, I cant get the motor to go back into place. Anyone with a 3170 understands how little room is between the slide and the fridge wall. I can barely fit my arms in there. I can see the motor if I pull the seal gasket down, but I tried from outside the coach and from the inside. The damm thing won't seat back in place.
The round motor is mounted to a square base, it looks like a magnetic transformer. Beneath that, the motor drive shaft fits into a cylindrical gear piece that is supposed to mate with the track.
The motor still works, the DW operated the switch and I can see the shaft turning.
Has anyone ever had this issue? How did you get the motor back into place? It is a very tight spot to work in.
Thanks in advance.
