Anyone have trouble with the bedroom slide out? Because if you do you are in trouble as I was,they give you a manual appliance to hook to a drill motor to drive the slideout in and out the problem is you have to be in the bedroom to do the task,if the slide is stuck in you can't get in and if the slide is stuck out you have to go in the bedroom to activate the manual slide control an then you cannot get out, and to find the appliance you have to take all the panels off plus to fix the slide out you have to tear the bedroom bed apart.

Is your motor chain driven above the slide with trim in front hiding it? Also is that the 1/4" Flex extension your talking about. I have looked at mine and it would be a nightmare to do, if stuck in the open position. Also you can not push that slide in, the motor gear will lock, either in or out. I guess that is the safety.

Can you leave both bathroom doors open and access it that way?

NO not on our design, you just can not get in the room period. I never new or understand why they had to put it on that side blocking the door. Unless it's a weight issue because the heavy slide with the refer, stove and sleeper is on the other side and maybe they did it to balance out the weight, but it could be a real problem. Since yesterday and the post today I tried to get into the bedroom with it closed and my trim belly can't get by but my wife can squeeze in. Our head only has 1 door from the raised step area. We can't access our bedroom through the head....

I had the same thing happen. 2014 3850. Bad design on both. Door and slide. Bad motor on the slide after 1 year.
