Hello 3rd year as a wildcat owner😡

3rd year camper and we love it we try to go every other weekend.
We bought our 35 foot camper at a state fair impulse buy salesman seemed to know a lot told us we were getting a mid grade camper. The more we used it the more issues especially with slides and tires
Wondering if anybody else has had these issues on the main slide at less than two years old the cable snapped
Now at three years old the Schwinn tech slide part is now pulling away from the wall when we slide it in and I had a horrible issue with the tires I wanted to upload video but it wonít allow me

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you've had a lot of fun in that wildcat.
If you're using original tires, most of them are really cheap and some people replace them immediately.
I have no experience with slides, but have you done any maintenance on them?
Perhaps someone with slide experience will weigh in on the topic.

Welcome to the forum. Go to the Wildcat sub thread and ask your questions there about your slide. Lots of knowledgeable folks there. Later RJD

the 2000 year models, " mine a 08" were notorious for rear fresh water holding tanks to pull tank straps loose supporting the tank. sags down and easily noticed. a passing rver told me my tank was falling. he had the same problem in a early 2000 model 5 th wheel. bolted a couple of aluminum c chanels across frame.

To "uplaod" a video believe you create an account on YouTube, upload the video there then link to it here. If I'm wrong sure someone will correct me.
