I have Schwinteks in my bunkhouse. I've gone through almost a slide rack/mechanism per year of ownership (4 years, 3 complete rack replacements).
In each instance, the slide would start to chew up the wood under the slide. After that, it would start to get out of sync/of kilter. And then it would finally die a messy death and my slide would be stuck somewhere between in and out. Twice now, I've had motors replaced to get the slides fully in but that wasn't an actual fix. Each time, they've replaced the whole rack.
This time, I got a hint that Lance is adding aluminum runners under the slides where the rollers are. I'm hoping this helps with the initial symptom.
Lippert can suck it.
