Slide out motors

Hello everyone I am new to your forums. We're in need of some good advice. Our power gear motor housing cracked causing the gears to strip. Are those motors pretty much all the same or do you have to replace with the identical unit. I have noticed they all look the same, can anyone tell me whats the difference other than the price some as much as $1000.00 dollars what GIVES.

There are some differences, but as long as the mount is the same and the voltage, power and gear ratio match, you should be good to go.

Without you providing year/make/model of your RV, it's all speculation.
It's not listed in your profile.

There are different brands/types of slideouts with different brands/types of motors.
