Anyone know the sizes of the black tanks? I'm needing a portable to empty them and I'd like to do in one trip if I can get one big enough.

Thank you sir! So I'm assuming that each is 21?

My synapses fired today and I remembered an issue we faced while setting up last weekend. I had issues with both bunkhouse slides while wheeling them out. Each seemed to kink and go off track at which point I had to wheel them back in about 1/2 of what I wheeled them out and then pushed the back out again and they went just fine.

Question is, do any of you have trouble, or had trouble wheeling out the bunkhouse slides? Just something I need to make sure I keep on the radar for the 1 year and more importantly just don't want to have to deal with a slide getting stuck and being 1,000 miles from home.

Mike - in my first 15-16 trips, I haven't had an issue. In the trip last weekend, I had that exact issue. I fretted all weekend long, worrying if I was going to be able to retract the slide when it was time to pack up.

It came in without a hitch, but sure bothered me.

And, unlike the newer 2013s/2014s - I don't have the manual cranks for the slides. I'd have to do some disassembly to figure out how to get the slide in.

Yeah, it sucked pretty bad regardless of the manual cranks or not. If it continues, I'll test every weekend before our trip to Florida, I'm going to take it in. The first time was my fault and thank the lord it did stop b/c a drawer had popped open. But, the other 2 times it happened were completely on their own.

Probably worth a call to the dealer anyway to setup a time to get it looked at (this is a busy time of year). Might want to try some slide lube.

Yeah - I had nothing in the way. It was only one of the 2 slides, but it definitely happened.

Do you have the Schwintek slides? Or something different?
