I certainly agree about the DANGER part. When I talked with Mr. Roff of Forrest River he didn't seem concerned, maybe he's just a laid-back sort of fellow. His suggestion of taking the slide out 1/2 way and propping it up with a 2X4 sounded easy enough...BUT....lifting that slide is going to take more oomph than I along can supply. I could brace and lift the slide with a small hydraulic jack but I'm wondering if that will break/snap some of the slide/track/gear interfacing. I'm in a real dilemma here.
I've been cruising the interweb searching with Google for like or similar problems but have yet to find anything related. I visited the "The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)"
latest RV recalls but found nothing there either.
I'm guessing this same hose pinching is happening in other Forrest River, Lippert above floor slide outs but no one has noticed it. In order to realize the pinch is occuring, one has to try and light the stove or burners with the slide moved to the in position.
If anyone has any ideas, I sure could use the help.
