I've been off this site for a while but thought I'd ad this update...Slideout repair part 2: On the last night of our trip to Yellowstone last June the slideout motor tore away from the mounting. This torqued the end of the worm gear off where the pin holds the gear to the motor shaft. I was able to hand-crank the slideout in to get home. I took the worm gear to a local blacksmith who fixed it for $10.00. In putting the gear back under the slideout I had to lift the carpeted section to thread it into the brass yoke. Now comes the fun part. 2 of 4 screws that hold the motor to the mount tore away at the motor side ruining the housing. I was able to get the 2 remaining screws in tight and bolted pipe strap across the gear housing and motor to stabilize it. We used it weekly through the rest of the season without fail.
