HVSBama, it wouldn't shut off. Finally took it out and had Camping World get a valve from Dometic under warranty. Did it again about a month later so I took it apart and lubed the whole thing inside and it's worked like a charm ever since.

I like the Reese Revolution as it allows me to use a full bed hard cover tonneau cover.

Is that a custom cover or did you make those modifications

Doesn't the Reese also extend the pivot point 22" over the slider's 18"?

It is an Undercover tonneau that I bought on Craigslist for $70 and I modified it. I have another one just like it that I paid IIRC close to $800 for and just couldn't bring myself to start sawing on it. It now resides under the back porch.

I'll give you 100.00 bucks for it and another 100.00 bucks to modify it.Better then 800.00 bucks sitting under your porch rotting away. Just send me a PM.....

I think you would be better off with the Reese, as far as price look them up on e-trailer. Also they are standard more and more on units. So depending on what your looking for as a 5th wheel with a 5.5 box the Revolution would be better IMO. Compare the cost of the slider to the price of the Revolution. Maybe your dealer will trade, I doubt it through but worth a try. They get better deals then we as the public. If your looking at Rockwood or Flagstaff they are on already. with a F150 you not going to pull anything heavier. The FR line of the above seem to me on this forum with least amount of problems, but I could be called bias by some.
