Subscribed. No issues yet... But curious for when it does (not if) fail.

Slide out failure

Our 2015 FR Sunseeker 3050S's slide out will no longer open. It opened two weeks ago on our first overnight of the season. We returned home, opened it for a week, while packing. Closed it and now it will not open again. Waiting for service appointment in 3 weeks. Will post outcome. Not happy about this. It apparently "pinched" the gas line so we had no propane for cooking for one week.

Sounds similar to a problem we had with ours. We were able to get the slide out; however, when the slide was in, we were unable to use our stovetop. Turned out the (protected) propane line was kinked. Wonder, in your situation, if some of that tubing is getting into the slide to prevent it from opening?? I would definitely turn off the propane at the tank. Having a kinked propane line of any kind is not good.

They had my unit for two months last year waiting for parts and I finally had to pick it up unfinished so I could get it to my indoor storage spot before the doors were closed and locked for the winter. Now they are going to have to reorder and see how long to get it. To make matters worse they tried to say I ordered the part the first time!!! Just as a note the part they ordered in Sept did get delivered to them two days before I had to pick it up so they put the part in my MH on the floor for safe keeping over winter.
A follow up as of Apr 24th, dealer has no idea when part will be delivered so I was told to pick MH up and bring back when they get part in. So this means another hour and half drive to get, and hour and half back home. Then hour and half to return when part is in to be installed.So the fun continues!!!

Went to do some things at our new trailer today and went to open front slide and it started out and went about 10in. And the rear motor stopped and the front continued out and then stopped . Ran back in and tried again this time it went about half way out and stopped again . This went on for 10 times and then I started out again and this time I pushed on it and it went out all the way . Sounds like the rear motor is straining and slows down then stops . Then when I went to bring back in before we left it wouldn't come in all the way . Ran back out and back in and this time I pulled best I could and it came all the way in . Definitely something not right and I'm afraid to take back to dealer , we don't trust them after what they couldn't fix on our old unit and the reason we bought this new one . Gonna get ahold of Forest River and see what we can get done .

I had one the motors go bad in my master slide tried to fix it failed. Ordered a motor from Lippert components 224.00 shipped. It took all of 10 min to replace and re sync. Not happy to have one go bad in a 2 year old trailer. But I guess that's the cost of camping.

Just out of curiousity, is everyone with the schwintek slides holding the button down for an additional 2-3 seconds after slide stops (in either direction)? I've heard not doing this causes lots of problems.... I guess the dealers and salesman either do not know this or just aren't telling new owners? I've only used my slide 5 times, all without issue so far. I hold the button till slide stops, then count to 3 and release. My slide might be considered small and light though, it contains the stove, microwave and a short couch and is only 24" deep.
