I decided not to chance it would not go in. Pushing it in is easier than pushing it out. Again if you have a broken gear the motor or drill will not move it in or out.

***UPDATE***

***UPDATE***

Bryan at FR3 was VERY quick to apologize for any inconvenience and to ship the new gearbox! (2016 model R25076)

Will (have) install this week before maiden voyage!

Love Forest River.

CW, not so much...

So a mobile repair shop came within a few days and installed the new gearbox within 2 hours. I was able to go on the maiden voyage no problem. The new gearbox works very smooth and has a 'better feel' bringing in and out the slide.

UPS picked up the broken part and FR will reimburse.

In the pictures you can see that not the cogs (teeth) were stripped, but the raised edge inside the box that keeps the cogwheel in place broke, which misaligned that cogwheel... The 2016 gearbox model should be of better quality...

Noise

On a similar note, is it normal for the slide/mechanism to squeal and sqwak when going in or out?

I think you have the norco BAL accuslide system on the FR3. If so here is the link to the manual.

It states squeaking is due to the cables being too tight. My Georgetown did it when new and also had a loud clunk just before the slide was all the way in. My repair shop adjusted them and no more issues the last 12 months or so. Hope this helps.
