Proper torque for electric slide motor bolts

When I checked in for warranty service our service team leader told me they would be checking the motor bolts for proper torque. They found that The they were loose. Specifically so I could pass it on here I asked for the proper procedure and specs.

Firstly, they completely remove the bolts so they can apply BLUE Loctite.

The 5/16ths bolts should be torqued to 19 ft/lbs.

Any 3/8ths bolts should be torqued to 33 ft/lbs.

Proper torque for electric slide motor bolts

FYI, the torque information is in the TSB for the loose slide motor bolts.

Our 2017 DSDP was built after Newmar started putting loctite on the slide bolts. Our rig is not listed on TSB 472. The bedroom slide bolts did have loctite and the bolts were loose on the bedroom slide. Kitchen slide was good. Will be checking more often in the future.

That is not comforting to hear. If blue loctite doesn't work, we might have to use red loctite, but it will be really challenging to remove those bolts if needed. Someone suggested drilling a small hole through the bolt heads and running stiff wire from one to a second bolt (search "safety wire"). That would certainly keep the bolts from vibrating out without the downside of red loctite.

Pre drilled for safety wire cap screws in many sizes (including the ones we are interested in) are available from McMaster Carr.
