Would that squeeze out the edges when compressed?

No pics- I was too busy helping the guy (and generally at my wits end with the slide by that point- the day before I drove from the overnight parking lot spot to my campsite with my slide deployed by 12" or so).

Not far, but through the gates and a turn or two. It sucked, most definitely.

My Rockwood 2703ws is in the shop now with the same problem; rear motor shot and slide is in. At least it is still in warranty.

Slide out

If you were able to extend the slide 12", that is certainly far enough to take them both loose..the set screw on the exterior can be accessed with that much hanginf out..Once the motors are lifted up a 1/2". that takes them out of the gears, then the slide is free to move in and out freely. Lippert told me that moving the slide out with the motors still in there respective grears, even if un-plugged with no power was virtually impossible to achieve..we had four grown men pushing on mine out and it would not move at all...The gear ratio on the motor is impossible to turn even with a pair of vice grips.....Give me the whole nasty story again..kickster

Not sure if you're insinuating that I'm telling tale tales or what- but as I said, I was able to get movement out of mine. It did finally budge in Orlando and I couldn't get it to move- but I got it out and back in a few times before and after that. I've got no reason to tell stories- life is weird enough without making stuff up.

By no means would I ever do such a thing to a fellow FROG, just repeating what the Lippeert Engineer who designed this thing repeated to me...no we could not get it to move not even an inch, and yes we had four 200# men trying to push this thing out, don't have to worry about it coming out on the way home, heck if I knew it would come out by its self, we would be on a wendy road right now just waiting for it to FALL OUT, THAT WOULD BE THE ANSWER TO OUR PROBLEM..TAKE CARE, we are still here in Florida with a sofa in the middle of our living room...kickster
