Another question about slide mount bolts.

After receiving great info about bolts on my electric slides I looked at the bolts on the FWS. Found some loose bolts and would like to know if they should be this way or do I need to tighten them up.

First photo is of the attaching point for the slide gear. Second is the bolt that holds up the cables for the slide.

I do believe the two bolts need to be tight because the metal block has a lot of play in it.

The bolt for the cables seems to be tight but the bracket can move up and down about 2 or 3 inches.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Are you having a problem with your FWS?
If this is the HWH hydraulic slide I would leave alone and call Newmar as to what they are for and they may need your pictures.
The chain may need the play for that block to move up or down during its operation.
This sticky has a link to HWH Web site for Newmar slide operation that may explain about the bolts you are asking about.

My cable tray bolting both slides is just like yours. I've looked and can not find any damage to the cables or trays. I believe it needs to be as installed to allow up and down movement for the cables and trays as they retract and extend.

"007" / stang37

During our stop today I was able to contact Newmar. Explained my concern to them about play in bolts on FWS. Individual went out into the shop and looked at several MHs while on the phone with me.

The single bolt showed anywhere between 1/2 inch and 2 inches depending on the MH. Said it all depends on the MH and operation of slide when built. Suggested I keep an eye on it and make sure it does not interfere with slide operation. If it catches on seal or MH adjust to show less threads.

As for the two bolts I thought were loose they are not, just locked in a loose position. They do need to be loose so the track holding the line can move with slide as it goes up and down.

They were glad I called and happy to help out.

Thanks for the followup. I only have the electrical tray bolting similar to yours. I felt it was correct as both slides were exactly the same.
