FR3 Slider cable

Iíve got a 2018 FR3 29DS I noticed when I extend the sliders out (bedroom & sofa) that all 4 cable are loose. Do I need to tighten them? If so how do I do that. Appreciate any assistance.

I could be wrong but if u are checking the cables while it is out on the outside cables they will be a bit loose as those cables pull it back in??

Th cables will need adjusting. Ive done mine twice in the last 6 years. Since i leanred how to replace the motors when they failed (actually gear box but easier to do the whole motor) was not bad. There is a good video out there from lippert i believe.

I had to adjust my sofa slide cables and found a one of the white foam blocks was off. It allowed the cable get loose. Make sure all the white foam are on your cables.

Below is a youtube on adjusting the cables. Derryl Farar explains the slide components & motor/gearbox replacement.



Also see my thread: Stuck in my Driveway with a dead living room slide motor

I posted photos on how to remove the sofa trim.
