Generator Slide Bearings & Cam Followers

Hi all,
I am hunting for some cam follower bearings Kwikee part number 1912042 (need 4) and ball bearings Kwikee part #1912040 (need 14). For some reason, I can't keep these things from freezing (rusting?) up. I've been searching, but haven't come up with any yet. Any leads?

I think my coach was built in 2003, but was considered a 2004. I know it was a custom ordered coach and I bought it used in March of 2004. Could WRV have used different ball bearings and cam follower bearings on the later coaches that were either sealed really well or had zerk fittings? If so, I'd like to know how to get ahold of them. The Kwikee drawing for the slide is 905630000.

Thanks!

Mine froze up til the Gen slide stalled, & a generous application of Boeshield T-9 (try Amazon) plus some elbow gear freed them up. Still running on the originals.

Or you can take them into an industrial bearing supply joint & they should be able to match them. I counted 2 types on my slide tho there may be more, the ones in front that carry the load of the gen weight seem to take the most stress and we the ones that froze up on mine.

You can also find the T-9 lube at many bicycle shops. It is great for bike chains.

Thank you all for responding. Yes, the front ones are frozen. I will try the Boeshield and see if that works. Seems like a lot of grit involved too.

Like Mike said you go to an industrial bearing warehouse. That is where I got mine. Bottom guide uses a bearing CFI 1/4 SB. Side bearing 1/2" shaft CFI 3/8 SB.
Both were sealed bearing. I would take one of each in match up. I couldn't replace all mine since I would have had to remove the generator. Those I did not replace, I lube good. I don't know if you the elec or hyd gen slide. I have the electric and since, there is not a replacement motor, I try to keep the rails and bearing lubed well.

Kraig- there is a replacement electric gen slide motor, I found it on line for <$200. The trouble isn't the motor but the ACME screw extension.
The motor housing has some numbers on it which you can google, comes in 12V & 24V iirc.
The precise length of acme screw + tube & end piece are the "custom" parts of the system.

FYI. The HWH hydraulic gen. slide does not use ball bearings. It uses a Polymer Slide Bearing which is maintenance free and self lubricating (No greasing necessary).
