Wayne I had no choice. Out in Death Valley for two weeks camping at Stovepipe Wells. I could have used Coachnet, they will send out a service person at no charge for time and mileage which is a pretty good deal considering they were going to have to drive 200 miles round trip from Pahrump, Nevada! But they do charge an hourly rate for any work they do on your coach and then it's dicey whether you can recover that from the dealer or Forest River even under warranty. I had the job done well before they could have reached me where I was staying. The dealer is replacing the motor and gear box. I spoke with Travis at Forest River and asked if he would Ok replacing the motors and gear boxes on both slides even though the bedroom slide is still functioning. He approved the parts and work and sent a pair of motors and gear boxes to my dealer.

Works if its just a gear tooth problem which has been common until fixed.

this is exactly what we did; thaks
