2019 FR3 recall

Got a recall in the mail.!! Yea..
2019 FR3 33ds
States: The Slim-rack slide out mechanism may activate unintentionally moving the slide room in or out.

Any other 33ds owners get one? Can't find what it actually involves. Is the Slim-rack the gear tracks on the side of the slide?

robo44, did you get one?

The recall involves replacing the Slim Rack controller not the actual mechanism.

The Slim Rack is the mechanism including the gear tracks as well as the column attached to the opening with the motor and pinion gears.

Actual work to swap out the controller should be about 30 minutes or less.

I did in fact get the recall notice in the mail 2 days ago. I have no idea on what it involves to repair, but it does sound like it would be a serious issue if my slide moves out while driving.
I already set up an appointment for next Monday to get it resolved. so I have 2 out being looked at

Yes, I got one too. My rig is already at the dealer for this fix. Service writer said the work involves changing the motors and the controllers on both slides.
