FR3 Slide Out Issue

Has anyone experienced slide out issues? We just returned from a trip and the main slide out will not expand, it makes a grinding/clicking noise. I did not find any obstructions.

That is your clutch you are hearing something is bindinding it up, Are you level? Check underneath and see if something got caught in your gear. If you keep doing it it will burn your clutch out. Have you spayed it with dry lube yet?

Thanks for your response. We're level in my driveway, nothing visible underneath.
It's going to the dealer next week.

I thought I was having a issue with the main slideout this morning, then realized I was pushing the button the wrong direction.

Slide out... Entry Step...etc

Our bedroom slide on th FR3 does not work Grinding noise every 3 insch, figured the motor gearbox is gone. No obstructions... right tension... what? Is brandnew slide out used 5 times.

Had my entry step serviced... Switch lights not working anymore..

Dealer said "Motherboard..."wanted $400 it takes something to get service.... He lied to me, thought i was a rookie. I am an engineer myself. Fixed it my self, just a new switch.

Entry step is a problem... too low, hits every curbside, Can't check the leveling jacks... have to open door. So i made a switch .... go to the door MAGNET wiring (On the screendoor) pull the wire out (2 wires) and make a switch between the 2 wires to keep the step from going out!! Saves your step... now when you park... open the door carefully... the step stays in.... and check if you can extract the steps.... if so... click the switch.

Presto....

Hopefully we get the back slide fixed without a warranty battle!

The are not too quick at Forest river.....
