2014 Holiday Rambler Ambassador

Hi All,

We purchased a new 2014 Holiday Rambler from General RV in Huntley , IL. Have been satisfied and only one question. whne sliding the rear slide out to the out position, it reaches the limit and a sound like a gear jumping starts. The service manager at General RV told me that is because the rear slide out has only one motor and it makes that noise when it reaches the limit. He said to NOT continue to hold the switch as it would damage the gear mechanism. Seems to me that if it makes that noise to signal the end of travel, at some point the gear will wear out?? Any opinions?

Slide jump

Our slide on the 36pft 2013 also make this noise. The former owner was told there was not anything to be concerned about as long as you do not hold the switch down when you hear it.

I wouldn't worry. Ours has been doing that for 10 years now and we spend 150+ nights/year on the road.

If you are talking about the bed slide, then the noise is normal.
