Fast is not always a good thing.
Yours are just gear reducted more allowing for more torque.

yeah, but it would be nice to see them move faster extending until they make contact with the ground. maybe my complaint will be completely unfounded after finally getting out to use it a few times.

Lol if it was a smart phone you could have used the Frf app and download it from your phone right to frf.
We'll wait!

Do you have email on your phone? Works for me when I need a picture right away.

This is due to the holding tank locations between the frame rails for the 1/2 bath and ext. kitchen sink. The tank locations don't allow us to use a "through frame" slide system. The lip you mentioned is seen when you build this model with an air bed sofa. When it's built with the standard bunks the lip is hidden. Moving the air bed to the edge of this lip will help you to not trip over it. I hope this explains something's. I'm sorry it causes you problems.
That makes sense - hope I didn't come across as complaining about it. I figured (well, hoped) there was a design reason and it was a manufacturing mistake. I had gotten looking at the slide on the opposing wall (that does have the standard bunk) and could tell it made sense over there.

It's not so much a problem as just a curiosity. It does cause a bit of a hassle with the pull-out sofa - the screws for the adjustable legs don't extend far enough to account for the height. Y'all don't have extra long screws available, do you? Right now we're just throwing down a couple of boards to make up the difference. It's not pretty, but it works.

Dear Customer,
there is no way to speed up the front electric jacks.

Dwaynertz,
I too was diappointed at first with the landing gear retract speed, but then I installed the "Intellijack Automatic 5th Wheel RV Leveling System"

It doesn't travel any faster, but at least I don't have to keep mashing the switch.
