Our 2014 FR3 30DDS has operated fine until today. Just arrived at campsite and the main slide out moves about 2" then stops and makes a sound like an impact wrench. Rear slide out works fine. Ideas?? Of course this happens when all mechanics have gone home.
Exact same thing happened to mine. FR3 Bed slide out. Went about 1/2 way and then jackhammer. (both going in and out). If you had someone outside pushing or pulling they could get it past the bad sport. The dealer had to order parts and repair it under warranty.
Try having a person or two outside pulling while you operate. That will get it out for the weekend and you MIGHT need someone to help push it back when you break camp...
Sorry, no. I do know it took a couple weeks for them to get the part(s), but I suspect they just failed to order them when they were supposed to. Whatever it was, it is a common problem, since they knew right away what to do. Which is why I was little irritated that they didn't carry the part(s) in stock...
BTW, I actually used mine 2 or 3 times while waiting for part, by just having someone help push/pull the slide out.
I'm glad you were able to use your slide out with help of a push or pull but since mine is the main slide, I'm afraid that it might take several people to move it. Guess we'll wait to get back to a dealer next week.
THAT HAPPEN TO ME,,,
I found it to be a rag that had gotten caught on the shaft under the slide out,,,
in a storage compartment,,, Guess you know there are no more rags in that compartment !!! LIVE & LEARN !!!
Our 2014 FR3 had the same problem with the bedroom slide. Only difference was I had it out putting clothes in for a trip and it wouldn't go in. Long story short, the gear box had to be replaced. That was a year ago.
