2013 Columbus 320RS - slide problems?

Hello everyone! I am considering buying one of these from a private seller.

If you have had or know of any problems with this model, I would love to know, as someone had mentioned a bedroom slide problem (Schwintec) with this particular year model (2013). Thanks in advance for your help!

Welcome!
I've got a 2015 320rs albeit two weeks old "new"
Someone with an older unit may be of help.

I have a 2013 320 RS and have had no slide problems, in fact, this has been the best RV we have ever owned and this is # 6 for us. The wife and I have been very satisfied with it and I wouldn't hesitate to get another.

We have a 2015 320RS. It is 1.5 yrs new & we have not had any slide issues to date. I don't think the perfect RV has been made, but we love ours.

I have a 2013 295 and have had no issues. One thing that you need to remember is when bringing the bedroom slide in (Schwintek System) you either need to bring it all the way in or take it all the way out. No stopping motion in the middle of the cycle. Follow this rule and you should have no problems with the motors getting out of Sync.

One plus with Schwintek is it is easy to work on and easy to find problem. There is a on line form with lippert showing how to work and make repairs in the system with how to videos.

2015 320, 14 months old. Had to replace the motor on the dining room slide. Like this camper best out of 6 in 6 years
It's a keeper
