I saw what I thought was a loose screw on the front end of our PS bedroom slide, it wouldn't tighten and when I took it out I found it was broken off. I found 16 of 32 screws broken on this one slide and a total of 29 broken screws on all three slides. Suggest everybody check their screws on the ends of their slides.

Hey BigSky, the best suggestion is don't check for broken screws and hope your bay doors don't fall off. Good Luck

Better just broken screws than what I found on my 05 Quad slide (5k miles). How about broken mounting BOLTS for the curbside galley slide! Seems when WRV installed the slides they liked to use wood lag bolts to mount the mechanism arms to the slide frame with really nice(yeah, right) sheet metal shims. And since they didn't wish to install the correct length lag they decided to use washers to stop it from bottoming out. Only problem with that was when the lock arm latched into position it hit the heads of the bolt and sheared them clean. The only indication of a problem was the cracked counter in curb-side galley magazine rack. That was till the bolt heads were on the floor. Had to fabricate a bracket to wrap under the slide for support as you could no longer thread anything to original holes. This also required removal of the cabinetry in the effected area that required refinishing inside since most had been glued into place. Support from WRV very disappointing since I was not considered the original owner. Nice customer service.
