A block of wood seems kinna cheap to me, metal framework would be better 1x1 box tubing welded together with 1/4 inch plate for the motor to be mounted on.

That is too small & I don't weld. I wouldn't want anybody to be doing any welding under the sofa either.

Agree, that "fix" looks pretty inadequate (cheap) to me.

Slide motor pulled loose on 2109s

We had the same problem-- the slide motor pulled loose from the wall on our 2109s the last night of a four-week trip this fall. Based on the warning from this thread, I had checked the bolts before we left, and they were tight, but unfortunately I neglected to continue checking during the trip. When we dropped the trailer with our dealer for winter storage, he assured us this problem would be covered under warranty. So we'll see what his fix looks like next spring. We also had the wooden panel on the refrigerator door come off, which others have reported. This is also covered under warranty. Otherwise this first long trip with our 2109s was wonderful, and we love the trailer!

If you can, post a picture of the fix. It would be interesting to see the solution you get.

Thanks.

If you have a 2109S it is worth checking your slide motor under the sofa.
July 2013 was heading out for a 2 week trip from Orlando to Devil's Tower with my 6 month old 2013 2109s; 1st stopover in Georgia, the slide is dead. I check all the breakers and fuses and all is good. Check the FR boards and find the post about the hidden fuse coming straight from the battery under the frame (In a place that is sure to get soaked the first time you drive in the rain). I replaced the fuse and the motor tried to open the slide, but was flopping around like crazy on the floor. Check under the couch and the slide motor in on the floor next to 4 black lag bolts with 4 holes in the wall board. Motor was screwed into the wall board only and nothing else. I put a plank of wood under and over the motor, and did this for the next 2 weeks until I got home.
Now I know I wasn't the only one having this issue.

When my dealer did the fix on mine, they only added longer screws to tighten it up. I'm wondering if adding a board under the motor itself is actually required as others have mentioned in their posts. I'm a little nervous that this may make things worse rather than better. Has anyone had their dealer add the extra support board? Would be nice if FR could let us know the proper fix for this issue... Wishful thinking I suppose.
