Sofa Slide

After beating this horse to death, I have pretty well concluded that the only way to get the sofa slide to extend is with the electric motor dead to the world, will be to drill a 5/8" diam. hole in the exterior slide trim, insert another smaller drill bit to locate the allen head set screw in the Schwntek Motor, this will relieve the motor so it can be removed from the interior of the coach as intended. To bad the factory never thought of this procedure when the coach was designed years ago. After replacing the bad motor, we should be able to extend the slide for the first time in three weeks. Will try to call Ron Green at Forest Rivers Repair Facility first thing in the morning, as I intend to begin whacking on this thing by nine AM on Monday..I see by some other threads posted this is the only path at this time given that the slide trim is screwed all the way around the slide and no one but Superman can ever get this darn slide to be pushed out.......
Pictures of this process will be documented.....

My local shop has changed out mine this week. Not sure how many it took to slide it ouut but i'm gonna talk to them tommorow when I pick it up, just so i'll know for next time.I'm going to look into replacing the screww that secures the motor with a SS pin that could be removed from inside or out. The rubber gaskets should keep it from 'walking out'.

Would be interested in knowing where you took it to get it repaired. If it rains here tomorrow, that will give me time to make a few more calls...Removing pin or screw from the inside would be a great idea..keep me posted..send me a private message with your number, I will do the same..kiskster

Wiring issues

Looks as though we may have a wiring issue with our sofa slide after all. Checking the wiring i have discovered a short going to the #2 motor, this wiring runs under the slide out inside the coach,have no idea how to get to it short of removing the slide out complerely. Will let the dealer deal with that when we get back home on the 23rd of march. Having a sofa sitting in the middle of your living room has been an experience......Think we may be checking into another brand of 5th wheel soon. Seems as though every time we leave to go out on the road, something else pops up. We preflight everything very well, this should not being happening, as we are as anal as it comes to having everything just right...Kind of sick right now, all this money invested in something we have no confidence in any longer..
