About Cummins Generators: Very few dealers have certified technicians capable of diagnosing and servicing your generator. Coachmen service (Bob Jewel & Co) is. Most CW's are not. The good news is that Cummins Onan has a network of facilities across the country. When my unit started shutting down, I was able to obtain expert diagnosis and supporting documentation from the Coach Care facility in Albuquerque. Super nice folks and very accomodating. Here is a link for reference:

well got it back quick, all they did was change out the curtains, DONE, waallla, they didnt do anything else, they said they ordered a bracket to hold the door at a 90 degree but it was the wrong one, they said they had to order the cheap cabinet picture crap, and it would take a few weeks, so far not happy with the service, also I bought the camco sewer hose and can't get the right angle to get the hose directed through the opening in the bottom of the sewer compartment, who ever designed the lay out must have been a moowon

Sorry to hear that. We went out two weeks ago to pick up the Coach but despite being told it was ready, the main issue with the slide out remained unfixed. When the slide comes out, one end moves before the other in this slowly unfolding seizure like motion. Before it smoothly moved out (even though it made a lot of noise which now it doesn't) but the rollers in the bottom of the slide aren't rolling- the slide just scrapes along them. So, long story short, they still have the coach. Most other repairs looked good but we will have to make another trip out whenever they can get the rollers rolling. I guess my other 27kb owner friends don't have this issue? I held off posting until I had better news but we will see. I'm going to give Bob another chance to fix this up right. Cross yer fingers for us.

mine squeal so I thought I wood put some silicone grease on them, yours might need to be loosened up a little, as far as the slide coming out crooked, it might be off a couple of teeth on the tracks
I wood definitely look for wear on the aluminum tracks, I also thought about putting some paraffin wax for some lubricant, it worked on my slides for my sliding glass doors and windows years ago, they use to bind and drag, and after the wax they slid like butter, with no build up of dirt,

I do like that sewer hose placement and the clear tubing. Nice!

As for my slide, I could have lived with the squeaky noises, I don't like the fact that one end moves and then the other end catches up and so it extends in a herky jerky way. I never saw that before... and the fact that the rollers appear pointless (btw, they tried loosening them up while we were out there, we waited for about an hour for them to try all sorts of quick fixes -- none worked). I'll keep you all posted.

The top is just a piece of the same material as the inner compartment liner.
The floor is thick and is insulated so they reused the the new cutout piece and filled the gaps with RTV which was also used to seal the bottom plate which is black and screwed on.
The inside plate is all scratched up from my aluminium pan that I keep the elbow in.
I considered leaving the elbow and extension on and sealing the gap with silicone but then you would have to add a final blade valve and cap under the compartment. If I do decide to do that it will be after I install front mud flaps so the road rocks do not hit it.

lJJD74,
Careful with that slide. The schwintek system is quite different than the old electric or hydraulic slide systems. The movement limits are electronically controlled and only adjustable at the controller box. (located in your front outside compartment near the door).
Anything more than silicone spray would, IMO, be a mistake.
If you can't get it corrected by the dealer/factory, you might consider talking to the folks at LCI directly. They are the folks that warranty it anyway.
My slide had numerous problems, all attributable to lack of proper assembly and installation at plant 310.

Here is a link to get you to a good place to start: https://lci1.com/support-center
