I don't know what you mean by "SWIZZY SWAZZY" slide, but a Schwintek slide *is* a kind of Lippert slide. They make a handful of slide mechanisms.

On mine, this same thing happened. Our first attempt was replacing a motor which didn't fix the issue. They eventually pulled the whole slide and had to raise one side up a bit. I'm not saying this is HockeyMom's slide issue- just what we experienced.

Lippert also has (Hyd.powered slides,above floor slides,thru frame slides,as well as the inside wall slides) so until we know (What Slide She has) this is a (Crap Shoot)! And I will still call them a (Swizzy Swazzy)! Youroo!!

Ah crap. I don't have the manuals at home, they're in the MH buried in snow. It's a wall slide if that helps any.

Just a guess, but if you have hydraulics your slide is probably to. At least the main ones, but maybe not the small one, like a wardrobe slide. At 30 degrees it can cause a problem. There is an additive that they recommend. I guess once everyone defrost then you can try it again. This is the coldest winter I can remember. If a shear pin broke it wouldn't move at all. There is a pin that holds the cross over bar on the electrical track type slides. I just do not think that is your problem. It is as good as a guess as anybody without knowing what system it is. Sorry I can't be of more help. GOOD LUCK

It stopped working properly in November. I don't know if I have anything hydraulic, though. I could hear the motors working. We leave April 3 for spring break, so I guess I'll just take it in.

No sarcasm intended then or now. If it's a Swintek slide by Lippert if it has external strips on the front and back panels of the slide on the outside with course gear teeth molded in them. Otherwise it can be a rack and pinion design or hyd pistons (doubtful), or even cables. They make them all. If a shear pin broke, there would be no movement.

Also just to clarify those with Hydraulic suggestions, the Class C divisions does not run any hydraulic slides at this time.

The 3170 has (2) slide styles.
Living room slide is a Lippert above floor sofa slide.
Bunk room slide (passenger side) is a Lippert Schwintec slide. (has the silver worm gear rails on the slide room exterior walls).

A shear pin issue would only be the living room slide. Sync'ing motors would be the bedroom slide.

Please carry on, now that we're all on the same page (hopefully)
