2014 30DS with queen and 4" memory foam topper built in February 2014. No issues yet, a half-dozen trips with probably 30+ slides. Fingers crossed.

Interesting 30DS with Queen seems to be no issue.
25DS with king seems to be the issue.

Kudos for starting a thread to help see the problem by make/model.

2014 FR3 30DS queen 1 year old
10000 miles 50 days camping 5 people probably 100 slide operations no issue yet I think problem is in bed hinge on newer version and people not letting go of button when slide is in or out, and clutching motor.
But like I said previously it's just a bad design, to hard to adjust, too weak. Mechanics don't want to work on it.

For over pressing simple limit switches would prevent that issue.

It looks like for the bed slide on the 25DS FR took a page right out of the ole' "Engineering Around Physics" Handbook for Dummies!

Please respond to this thread by selecting one of the following:

2014 30DS/Queen Bed
2014 30DS/King Bed
2015 30DS/King Bed
2014 25DS/King Bed
2015 25DS/King Bed

In a few weeks I will tally the results and post it.

It may be that the king size bed configuration is too heavy but the data should give us a clue.
You could just add a "poll" to this thread and folks could just vote.
Then you could have a running total.
