This ole engineer will say to the other ole engineer, no problem at all with the through-frame slide mechanism on the ole 21SS. Especially considering the wide gap FR uses between the slide-out box and opening for the super slides. Funny thing is, when they first introduced the flush mount super slides on the hybrid, they used Gr.2 hardware on the drive tubes for the mechanism. They'd shear just from the adhesion of the seal around the slide perimeter! Good job on that one!
