06 Camelot Bedroom Slide Repair

Yesterday my road side bedroom slide would not extend. I checked all the fuzes I could find with no success. Next I raised the bed, unscrewed the grey/blue pads. After removing the front pad (about 15'' wide) I could see the floor and a bunch of plastic material. The plastic was hiding the slide motor. Next I removed the rear pad and fould plywood under it. I tried to raise the plywood but it would not budge. Tried to pry it up with not luck. Since I am too large to get into the 15" opening, I wound up taking my coach to Hutton's RV sales and service in Urbana, Iowa. I found them on the internet. The smallest guy in the shop got the job of checking out power to the slide motor. After an hour of twisting and turning, he found a wire connector that came loose. Problem solved, but who was the idiot that designed the plywood cover that could not be opened. The shop was real close to using a rip saw to gain access. The people at Hutton's were the bright part of this story. I was in and out in less that two hours. If you are ever in the middle of an Iowa cornfield, I would highly recommend this shop.

What a coincidence! I just went thru that this morning with my bedroom slide.
The motor was turning but the slide was not moving.
I opened the plywood cover and saw the motor way in the back. ( the slide was closed).
I used my wrench with the proper socket and manually extended the slide.
And then Voila! the motor was easily accessed.

Still not the greatest design.

It turned out that my problem was a loose couppler between the motor and the gear rack.
