Salem Hemisphere 366BH slides

I wanted to post and see if other people are having he same issue. Iíve got a 2015 366BH 5th wheel and the slides for the dinette and the bunk house are crazy noisy to the point of embarrassment. Also the plastic covers that are located under the corners are broken off and looks like the slide is falling out of the bottom. Not sure what to do. Any help would be nice.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. My first question is when did you last lube the slides? There is a ton of information on slides use the search function at the upper right of the page.

spell check is not always friendly. could the noise you are hearing be the clutch retching if so those can be adjusted.

on my 2013, main slide, the motors were too weak and had a lot of trouble bring main slide in and the bottom screws on the out side where the assembly attaches to the side wall worked their way out and kicked the whole slide out of alignment when bringing the slide in, tilting down to the floor and dragging on the floor. your slide(s) are being kicked out of alignment for some reason, (imo). The original motors were too weak for the size of the main slides. I have been told that the original motors are no longer available and must be ungraded to the higher torque motors. The 'noise' is (imo) the gears/cogs, being eaten up from being out of alignments.
