Who is the resident Schwintek guru

So tell me, is this the way a Shwintek should leave the factory? Should the upper rack be parallel to the lower rack, or run up a 9% grade as in this picture? Did someone have a blindfold on when they installed it or maybe have their head up you know where?

I have the same system on both of the slides, all eight are level.

Based on that picture I need to call my dealer and get mine fixed like that....

I guess it works, but umm how well does it work?

Nice isn't it? That is the type of fine craftsmanship being shipped to the dealers. A 2016 Roo 23WS. So yall are fairly sure its not supposed to be like that huh? I think this may be the last straw trying to buy this camper even though I had previously noted issues with the slide out. What else is done wrong you can't see? Did they put glue in the lamination?

It does go in and out, I don't know how either seeing that those racks run through bushings back at the motor?

Holy Crap Marie! I am surprised it would even work!

I have helped a buddy of mine rebuild the Schwintek system on his Voltage due to a very poor factory install. It is a decent system if sized and installed properly. The tracks are supposed to be parallel. I will see if I can find my link to the installation manuals.

Well, they must have been at Tuesday wing night because it was built on a Wednesday, or so says the sticker. A member has a Shamrock he just picked up that was built the day before. The Monday/Friday rule is pretty much out the window at this point.

I was assured by the Roo dealer that even though Roos and Shamrocks are produced on the same floor by the same employees that everyone in the factory knows that Roos are the real good ones and bring their A game to Roo builds.
They apparently sleepwalk their way through Shamrock construction.
I can only conclude they are trying to foist on you a Shamrock in disguise.

You have to call on that. I cannot fathom the thought that the assembly folks and the designers approved that. WOW, and I mean way more than oops.

I am certain that that should be resolved fast. OP, Please update this thread.

Mr Havercamp,

Please post more information in/on your rig/signature, I cannot even hazard a guess as to what needs to be avoided or reviewed in my travels.

Thanks,
