Well, the slide is fixed thanks to all the help from the forum. A special thanks to Ken C. We turned the first screw(left one) counterclockwise and like magic it now works!! We are leaving for the Oregon Coast on Sunday and will be there about a month so if anyone is in the area please let us know on the forum and maybe we can meet somewhere. Thanks again to you all!

From your neighbor up in the Valley,

Great, glad you were able to get it taken care of. While you're in Oregon, if you hit the coast, be on the look out for a place for the 2nd Annual Orphan Rally. After looking at the two Tradewinds in our 1st Rally, I started tearing out the carpet in my TW. Have a safe and enjoyable trip with all that extra room you now have in the bedroom.

Glad the suggestion helped. We had the same problem with our 01 which is how I learned the adjustment process. It would not stay in adjustment and after about the 3rd or 4th time, I turned the screw a couple extra revolutions which seemed to hold from then on.


While not on the Oregon coast, one of our favorite Oregon campgrounds is Seven Feathers in Canyonville, OR. Great park at fairly reasonable rates.

Wish mine had been that easy.

It was my main slide motor that quit on me. Glad I took out the extended policy. We traded our 5th wheel in Jun and the 2nd week we had the MH the Slide motor quit. I'm still waiting on Camping World to get the right part. As soon as it works we are out of here.

We have the same problem, looked at the motor but no screws. Where are thehy located? We found a couple of little plastic hex like bolts on the left side and an access hole in the cabinet. This is the side facing the hallway, the back side of the motor (away from the closet) has a hole in the cabinet but not the carpet. Is this where the screws are??

The adjustment instructions (small screws) only apply to the closet slide models. If your LTC has a bed slide, the mechanism is completely different.
