If you pull the drawer out can you see in there? Does it look like a screw head is doing it?

Just looked at mine. No marks like that on the kitchen slide. May be a screw.

I just looked at mine. My slide has wear marks where the slide contacts the frame or rollers. It's not tearing, just wear. I'm not alarmed yet, as the covering that is wearing is attached to hard backing. I will continue to monitor it.

After looking at your pictures again, it seems that your slide is contacting something sharp at those same contact points.

I own a 298 BHD Crusader, and on are 2nd trip out discovered a screw that came lose the hard way. When my wife opened the sideout, and I heard a scream only to find a 12 inch rip in linoleum. I had my dealer look at it, they told me a screw is sticking down ripping the floor back. Now, I need the floor replaced and the slide has to come out to repair the screw. SUCKS but what are you going to to. Love the trailer, and this is really the only thing to go wrong with it, but then again, it only our 2nd trip.

Had staples protrude thru the slide floor in our new LaCrosse, before we even got to take any trips. Had the floor replaced, Olathe Ford RV did a good job considering the undertaking.

Good luck and enjoy after getting repaired.

We have a 2013 325res and we are having problems with our bedroom slide. It is binding on one side only and will only move a few inches on the other side. It is currently stuck in
the out position. Tried lots of different things, its like one side is jammed. Any ideas?

ACIW,

See my original post on this thread. Sounds like the same issues I had. I eventually had to manually disengage the motors to get it closed to bring it to the dealer.

How did you get it disengaged? I tried cutting the power to the motors but that did not work.

With the assumtion that it is the same manufacturer since it is a Crusader bedroom slide, you have to access the motors at the top corners of the outside wall of the camper. Peel back the gasket material until you see a silver screw head. Remove the screw which holds the motor in place which is inside the wall. You can reach your hand inside the wall and feel the gear on the motor. Lift the gear on the motor up which disengages it from the slide. You will have to do this on both sides at the same time. It took five people to get mine in when I had those issues. Two to lift up on the motors and three to push the slide in.

I did call the service manager when I had this issue and the first course of action was to disconnect the motors at the control module (not sure what the name of it is) and this would release the brakes on the slide and you should be able to push it in. This didn't work for my camper, thus having to manually disengage the motors.

Again, this is an assumption that your slide is the same manufacturer as mine since they are both Crusader bedroom slides. Does it have a gear track on the side of the slide which should be able to be seen when the slide is out?

I'm not at home right now, or I would send you pictures where the access points are at.

Feel free to ask for additional assistance. I'll stand by.

Yes, the tracks are outside. And when we disconnected the motors from the sychhronizer modules it did not release the motor brake either.
