I'm not sure what may of caused this. This one is a first. Does the room operate normally? The motors have a fail save mechanism in that when they reach a certain amp draw they will stop. I'm wondering if maybe we put to much torque on the screws and the heads popped off. If all is working properly, I would new screws above the old ones and cover the broken one's we it a black caulk. If your unit is still under warranty, you can take it to your local dealer as well.

Little squeaking going on when putting in and out. Right now slide is in with gap there between body and frame. If I put it out now the gap will close and frame will tighten up against camper body.

Did you resolve the problem? The pictures are not that clear for me. I think I have the same problem on my Lexington, and not getting much help from Lippert. do you have other pic's that you could send me at rickalin@cgocable.ca Please include your phone number. this is worth a live chat.

Pics are at night, here is a daylight one. I talked to lippert and my dealer and they both said if they were fixing it they would put a few self tappers in a new hole next to old ones. They warm to think factory over tightened them since they used screws with torx head. I have not fixed yet, but am shortly myself when I get some time.

I doubt this happened at the factory. I have an above floor mechanical Lippert system and I hit the slide in switch after it at stopped retracting. Heard a cracking sound and stopped, only to find out that the 2 lower square bottom plates on the flashing had moved out an inch and a half and pulled the 4 screws out. I suspect and the Lippert tech agrees that the stopper block was pushed back and has to be put back to the original position. Now I have to find how to reach this block or it will happen again. I plan to use tie-downs to bring the base flashing back to position and put in 4 new screws and add an L shaped flat angle bar to tie the floor and wall. Clear as mud right? Good luck. I will be going out for the first time next weekend. Haven't the time yet to fix. Will close that last 2 inches by hand until I find the stop block.
