Worn shwintek gear rack
The gear rack at the front top of my full wall slide (Forester 3051S) is showing wear right where the slide motor gears sit when the slide is all the way in. None of the other three gear racks show any excess wear. The slide deploys and retracts well, though lately it does seem to be struggling more than it used to on the way out.
When i first had this MH, there was a lot of squeaking in the area that is now worn. The squeaking noise eventually went away. I wonder if that was the gear rail wearing as we traveled down the road?
Anyone have experiencing replacing a gear rack? What will happen if this section continues to erode? Who can reliably replace the rack (I have no trust of repair facilities). Any other advice?
Thanks for your response.
