we had similar issues with our bedroom slide also. screws didnt hold, not long enough or big enough. our small slide motor always sounds like it is overloaded. I added a bracket like you mentioned here too as it didn't seem like just tightening the loose screws would remedy this long term.

As I looked at the wood support it looks twisted. I'm thinking of adding some small "L" bracket to support it. Has anyone else seen problems here?
The wood supports under my bed for the lift rods/shocks were distorted so I just removed the rods, don't really use that area anyway. My base plate was also loose and missing screws. Tightened and added more attaching hardware then took it one step farther and removed the plywood at the head of the bed, the area that hangs outside the wall when extended. Filled this cavity with insulation to help with heat retention in cold weather. Too much trouble to access under bed storage after adding mattress topper so we store permanent items like the original bed cover. Check your screw length so as not to drill into a water pipe below.

We have had our Sabre select 29rlds for a year now. We have had a few minor issues, but nothing major that stopped us from using it. Have camped about 40 nights in since new. We are headed for Montana next week for a couple of weeks and expect no problems. Love the rig and our dealer. This is the sixth rv we have had, so we know what to expect out of them.

We bought a 292rlds a year ago and have just a couple small problems. Our dealer ( Open Road) in Monroe Wa. Fixed them with no hassles. We ate fortunate to have a good dealer within 8 miles of our house! Love our fifth wheel and have used it about 40 nights this year and over 4,000 miles. Work out the bugs and too will love it. Happy camping.

Buckeye Chuck, where have you traveled to with your unit and what are you pulling it with?

We pulled it from Grand Rapids, Mi to Sandusky, Ohio about 250 miles each way. Mostly flat roads with one steep grade just south of Grand Rapids. No problems pulling with a F250, 6.2L gasser, 3.73 gears. Got a little over 10 MPG. Towed at 63 - 65 mph. That was our longest so far. Heading to Florida next fall from Michigan with stops in Nashville and Savana. I don't anticipate any problems.

Have you made sure there is nothing caught in the hose leading to the shower head? And take a good look at the shower head itself for any blockage.

Sabre issues

Mike 48413 On my Sabre both hoses in the basement leading up to the shower made a sharp bend, they put 90 degree hose benders on them but they still kinked.

I'd start there sir.
