Perhaps my naiveté, but who else besides Lippert makes them?

Swazzy Tex unless Lippert bought them also, I can only imagine how BAD they will be if Lippert Cheapens the Worm Drive any More? Youroo!! BAL also makes a Cable system!

Have you ever seen one of the slides, such as a wardrobe or other that is "above the floor", as in a kitchen slide, and has horizontal cables you can see on the outside? That is an accuslide made by BAL / Norco and its a great system, as long as its installed correctly. The problem I think with any of them is the installed correctly part.

We have the 33IK they are Lippert hydraulic. Ours have worked perfectly. We did replace 1 quart of hydraulic fluid with Cat 1U-9891 anti stiction fluid they now are very smooth and we no longer have the creaking or popping in the system. Ours also has the 6 point level up that was the primary cause of the popping.

Lippert has had a TSB out since 2013 for this problem.
