09 Georgetown 357 slide out problems

Is anyone else having problems with their slide outs being rigged wrong?

We noticed the extension bars for the slide outs gettting grooves from rubbing against the frame below. Our dealer just told us FR is going to replace the bushings below the slide in an attempt to fix this issue, but our dealer doesn't think this will work, but this is what FR has said to do.

We love our coach, but wonder about this issue. We have already had to replace one of the pumps for a slide out that would not stay in.

Our coach is the 09 Georgetown 357?

thanks for your help

First off to FRF. There are plenty of knowledgeable people here to help with any questions you may have.

We haven't experienced any problems with the slideouts but would be interested to hear if the bushings do resolve the issue. Is it the large slideout with the sofa and dinette?

bushing issues

Yes, the bushings they are replacing first are the ones on the main slide, with dinette and the coach, and they are looking at the rest to find out if they need a change in size also.

No problems with ours either except they needed a little fine tuning to open and close fully but I'm only talking adjustments of less than 1/4" for both our front slides, otherwise they have worked great.
