I did check with forest river service. they said the original was a tapered pin with a nut. none of mine were. They also said it should be a grade 8 bolt. Some grade 8's are stamped on the head of the bolt and some like mine came from fastenall and are gold color.

I feel for you guys, having gone through so many minor/major problems with my Flagstaff 5er in the 4 years that I've owned it. Like you guys, the problems started pretty much right after I got the rig, with bad tires (2 complete sets) of Cheap Carlisle chinese made, to Oven, water pump (2), Converter, TV, Landing gear and the list goes on and on. At least I bought the extended warrantee so it's been fixed after the initial MFG warrantee only costing the deductible. Good luck people...

All,

Wanted to update you on the slide problem. I got my TT back on Tuesday before Thanksgiving. To late to go to NC, but its not sitting on the dealer's lot waiting for parts. FR sent the part express. Thank you FR. The motor assembly is a two piece electric motor and mechanical transmission that drives the linkage that moves the slide in and out. The motor and transmission are connected and the piece between the motor and transmission broke causing all the problems. The Tech replaced the missing nuts. He said that this is a new design and does not think it will be a problem in the future. Time will tell. Good news is the TT is back. Later,

Our season is never over here in Florida. The campgrounds are all open year round. I'm going to Ft. Clinch State park on Dec. 10th weekend in Fernandina beach, Fl., just over the Fl/Ga line, off of I 95. We camp at least one weekend a month. Also, the best time for Orlando, and the Disney parks, because it's cooler weather. Randy

Randy,
I know where that is at. I lived in St Mary, GA for seven years. Nice area to camp this time of the year......no bugs. Enjoy.

Help

Sailingsuppo46- I noticed you live in Frederick, MD. I do too and I am having a problem with my slide and was hoping you could help me by telling me where the bolts are located on the motor. We have a 08 (bought used last year) 8298SS. I tried to slide it out and can hear the motor but nothing is happening. I took that underbelly off and see four holes opposite of each other on the shaft (long black tube). Is this where the bolts go?

We are supposed to leave next week on trip with 5 kids and dealer said 4 wks for service. Hate to disappoint the kids! I would appreciate any advise you or anyone else could give. Thanks!

Good afternoon. This almost sounds like my issue last year, but I think your under the gun with 5 kids. Find the motor under the TT. The bolts attach the shaft to the motor through the holes. My problem turned out to be the shaft in the motor. Your bolts should be at the motor and at each end of the shaft(s). Hope that helps.

Thanks

Thank you! I think the bolts are o.k. I think it may be the motor even though it is making noise. At this point we are planning to continue with our trip with the slide in....should be interesting with 5 kids and a dog We will bring a tent along so they can play in case it rains. We are headed to Pioneer Campground in PA next to Worlds End State Park and Ricketts Glen State Park. There is a really cool damn, creek, and 20 waterfalls...one is 90 ft. If you haven't been there you should check it out. It is very peaceful, absolutely beautiful and a nice ride.
