Going to make wear strips for the slide. Mine finally gave up the ghost. Did make an improvement to TOWTA's old junker. It has a roof console for a 3 station remote garage door opener. Of course hers didn't have one so I bought an old one on ebay and even tho' it doesn't match the console, I got it programmed for both of our garage doors and will program the center one for Mardy's garage door where he stores his Caddy. Like it, does away with the visor remotes.

Well I was washing my unit and found that the brand new leveling Ram has pitted again. Just had it replaced by Lippert on the 5th of August 2015. I have call into them now to find out why the exact same side did it again. If I don't get it repaired it will rip my "O" ring has just been two weeks. I'm not a happy camper.

Bet they didn't replace it unless you saw them do it with your own eyes.

You are correct they will never install another on a Rockwood they had to add more bracing to the frame, but Ram is what bothers me the same place same ram. I did see the old one and the new one was not pitted. LCI called me extended my warranty a year, and said they will have it done here in Virginia. He wants a picture sent and said they may need to send there service guy to my house to do it. Atleast they are helping and standing up to the problems. When I was there they refused a guy who owned a Rockwood, they said never again to much beefing up the frame.
