Bedroom Slide Issues...thank you

I was about to start a new thread when I found these.


Slide problems....

2004 Dolphin - having some problems

Bedroom Slide Lubrication

My bedroom slide has started making a screeching noise going out and coming in. This weekend a knowledgeable person said it was the nylon/Teflon rollers/guides. The scratching tracts they are making are very visible underneath the extended slide. By pulling down the lower gasket you can see them. But weíve looked under the bed, removed the track paneling cover but still could not see the rollers or how you would get to them from inside then I found these threads and there was all of your helpful info for me to try to correct before visiting to our local leave it at least 2 weeks RV center.

Iíve use the 303 on all the gaskets around the slide. Iím picking up the 600 grit sandpaper tomorrow. Hubby has the Mothers Carnauba Wax. Iíll let you know how this turns out.

Thank you iRV2 members.

Your bedroom slide if it like mine will not have rollers, you will have 3 nylon or teflon blocks just in back of the room seal.

You need to silicone spray all moving parts under the bed. There is additional nylon guide blocks under the foot of the bed. After the gear box on my bedroom slide broke, with the motor and gear box removed I loosened all nuts bolts and screws adjusted the room over ľ inch then reinstalled nuts bolts and screws with no preload on them. Can slide the room by myself by hand if needed now. I did need to shim some areas to keep the metal frame flat.

My bedroom slide started screeching today about two thirds out. I always lubricated the track and gears. So I lubricated the nylon glides near the nott rubber seal. Tomorrow I will wax the bottom but it looks clean. What else can I do? Is this putting stress on the shear pins?

Samflhomes, I did everything to my slide, lubed the glides, cleaned and lubed the gasket, lubed motor gears and track and waxed the bottom of the slide. Nothing helped until I re-read one of the past posts about using Carnauba wax. Bought Mothers Carnauba wax and used it. Haven't had a problem since. Every couple of months I reapply the Carnauba. No more embarrassing noise.

found it, It was Bill Schwartz (WSRG) that suggested the Carnauba wax

I had forgotten that several months ago as I was leaving our property my DH said he thought the passenger rear swung wide and hit one of the trees. He said it hit the bedroom awning but I saw no damage so I did not give it another thought. Today as I was washing the RV I noticed a small dent where the bedroom slide awning touches the coach. As I did all of the above suggestions and still have an issue my coach is going in for a service tech to evaluate the slide adjustment. I'll let you know how this works out.

I put the wax on my finger tip and applied to plastic glides This seems to have helped a lot
