Poor design in FR25 for the doors over the bed.
Forget a door open and you will break you gear box for sure.
So I took the hinges from the base of the door and put them at the top.
In this way, the doors will never stay open and interfere with the frame of the slide out when you open it

Round 2 on the bedroom slide

On our last camping trip our bedroom slide started making that awful noise again and had to be pushed both ways manually while the switch was pressed in order to get it to move.

It's back at the dealer and they have determined that they need to replace the motor and the gear. Apparently last time they worked on it they only replaced the gear, and not the motor. They have contacted FR and they feel that it may take 14 days to get the part.

FR employees, if you are watching this forum, I'd love to hear what we can do to make sure that the problem is fixed correctly and quickly.

FR3 Slide Out Issue

Units built after January 2014 have a different motor and Gear box installed. Was under the impression they are replacing defective units under Warranty of the previous design.. Two weeks seems like a very long time to wait.

Back in August I had posted how our main slide was making the same noise as our bedroom slide had made prior to breaking. Thankfully FR was quick to replace that one too. I love that FR was so good about fixing the problem.

My question is about using the flexible extension rods, should I have to manually open or close a slide with a drill. Would I really have to disassemble the cabinets over the slide? That seems like a really strange way to do things and they never gave instructions on it either.
