I am going to lean to the side of fully agreeing with what you are saying.

After saying that though, I still feel like the factory employees grab whatever is available to them at the time, especially since everything assembly line piece meal construction. Could I be wrong?

I have a 2017 30DS FR3. It is past the standard warranty and I just noticed that both sides of both slides are cracked and near to falling off. I also have some cracking on the inside seals. I have an extended warranty, but still have to pay $200 of the $600 bill. Iíve been told by the service rep, that I should be using a spray on my slide to reduce the friction. Sounds that is only an interesting suggestion. What makes me believe that this wonít repeat in 2 years. Could the problem have been helped along by putting the slide out in cold temperatures?
