I was advised by a mech at camping world to drill holes out to 5/16 and install stainless bolts. Easy and permanent fix.

I too ordered the bolts from Kevin. The new ones are built different from the one that broke on ours. The new one has worked for almost a year now with out a problem & Im carrying 3 spares.

Before bring in your DS front slide, vacuum out the track and apply silicone spray. It works especially well on porous items, such as plastic parts used in the slide.

New owner of 2006 Inspire, and have had 3 shear pin breaks in 3 weeks. Slides checked out fine by my tech who told me to use grade 8 bolts. My bolt lesson is there are grade 2 bolts which are normal hardware store stuff, stainless bolts that are stronger but brittle, and grade 8 bolts which are stronger and apparently what is now working for me. There are also some special alloy bolts which are special order only and possibly too strong and could lead to other problems.

Power gear uses a 1/4 inch GRADE 8 Bolt with a Nylock nut

Note: The biggest mistake is buying a bolt that is long enough.. You need one that is TOO LONG.

IF you get a bolt that is long enough then the threads will extend down into the shaft and the square shaft will slice the bolt like a knife through butter.

If you get one that is long enough that NO PART of the threadeds is in the shaft then add washers so you can properly tighten the nylock nut..... The bolt will last much much longer.

I buy 'em by the dozen but since I started buying the proper length I do not buy 'em as often.. Not by a very long pause.

Home is where I park it!
