Branchman, I'm curious, who do you have your extended warranty with?

Make a report to NHTSA, might get a recall going if they get enough reports.

I dont think this is a safety issue. So unless the slide extends while motoring down the road, NHTSA is not going to be interested.

A flood of complaints to the BBB with a copy to RIVA might get better results.

If your gear is broken there is nothing holding the slide in any more. That is why you should make blocks of wood that fit above inside of closed slide when the gear or cable is broken. So it can't fall out while driving.

BBB has zero enforcement power.

That is true however if there is no official recall it MIGHT generate enough attention to get factory support at an acceptable level. BTW, RIVA has no enforcement power either.

So IF the slide can come out while the unit is in motion then NHTSA paper would be appropriate. Dj Vu
