Slide Issue

We have an 05 Inspire. We've developed three relatively small cracks in the exterior of the drivers side rear slide. Each starts at the window and runs about a foot. The slide comes in evenly, does not bind, and in all other respects seems fine.

in chatting with Kevin, he indicated to me that apparently CC subcontracted out some of the slides and those proved to be "inferior". I believe CC warranteed the bad ones and essentially removed them and completely rebuilt them.

Well, that ain't an option any more, so I'm curious if anyone else has run into a similar problem: several cracks in one particular slide, and if so, any good suggestings for a fix. Much as I like Kevin and his work, I'm not anxious to pay him to completely rebuild an entire slide.

Check the bed frame welds. One of mine was just tack welded and broke, Country Coach had to weld it up on my dime. They welded all corners then adjusted the slide. When I got home I adjusted the slide the way I liked it to keep it from leaking. Your problem may be different.

thanks for the bed suggestion. Easy check and easy fix if that is a problem.

We have the same problem. We are not going pay the $$$ it will cost, so have chosen to live with the ugliness. We seal it up with silicon and keep the rain out.

I didn't. Its a thought.

The motorhome is going into a shop here in Washington State next week to fix some rear damage caused by a big tree jumping out behind the thing while I was backing up.

I'm going to take a good luck at the structure in and around the bed frame this weekend to see if there are any obvious flaws. I'l have the same shop take a look at the slide siding and give me their opinion and estimate as well.

Right next door is Premier Services and they have ex Country Coach Employees. They charge $115/hr which is cheaper than others in the area. We're going there tomorrow to look closer at the 2009 Magna 630 45' they have. Will probably leave a check with them if it checks out.

Oregon Motorcoach, which is in the same area as the factory, will have some ideas about the problem. Lots of former CC techs work there and they do excellent work.
