Slide Question

My passenger side slide is making a grinding sound while going in or out, I have herd that there are nylon pads that the slide rides on. Has anyone replaced these, and how do you access them ?

Search IRV2 for "slide out nylon" and you'll get a ton of information. I'm guessing you have the hydraulic rams for the slide outs as I do on my '08. Look under the slide where the ram comes out and you'll see the nylon pads on all sides of it. I have a couple that are cracked, but none missing and I'm not going to replace them until I absolutely have to. I lubricate mine with silicone every couple of weeks, but I don't know if that helps or not. Good luck!

Mine has electric motors running the slide not hydraulic.

I have a 09 Journey that has a similar slide configuration to yours. The PS slide has 3 rams with the center ram being a passive ram or not motorized. Open the slide fully and check the bolts that support the center ram for integrity. One of the two bolts has fractured three times in my coach and the slide will make a loud rumbling when opening or closing due to the center of the slide slightly sagging. Not sure I would call it grinding but yours might be worse than mine was. The fix is not easy - you need to have a new bolt welded to the top surface above the roller in place of the fractured bolt and the center height re-adjusted. The existing bolt cannot be replaced and a new one installed from above without removing the entire slide hence the welding "fix".
I am not sure if this is your problem but from what I can gather, it us a relatively common issue resulting from poor design and/or installation on the part of Power Gear and/or Winnebago.
Despite mine failing three times, Winnebago refuse to acknowledge that this is a "problem" with the service advisor at the factory actually suggesting the it failed since it has been driven 25k miles since the last repair and the "slide moves in all directions while driving". Go figure that out!

All the bolts look to be in good condition.
It doesn't make the noise every time, just once in a while.
