XLR kitchen slide struggling
Hi I hope someone can help.
I purchased a 2011 XLR 35-10 5th wheel and I am having problems getting the kitchen slide in and out. it is a cable slide and is really flexing the wall on the way in and out. it is also tearing the hell out of the underneath of the slide. I have had a dealer look at it but was not familiar with that design of slide. He was going to call forest river but he has not got back to me, I don,t think I will hear back due to the fact that I did not buy the RV at his dealership. Has anyone else had this problem and if so can you help me out. Thanks :crying::(

If it is damaging the bottom of the slide, I would guess that something is severely out of adjustment. However, I am not familiar with the cable slides either, so am not sure what adjustments are available. I am assuming that you picked it up new? Did the slide work fine then?

XLR kitchen slide
It has never worked right since I purchased it at RV nation but did not notice untill I was home in Ontario.I have a dealer who said he MIGHT look at it if he has time in Oct or Nov. I guess I really should try to contact forest river direct and see if I can rectify this problem. If anyone has any contact names I would apreciate any feedback. Thanks in advance chip...

Try this number- 574-389-4600. When they answer, tell them you wish to speak to someone about XLR service. They can give you the number for whomever is closest to you. Good luck.
