Is Winnebago the only company that puts seals in the walls? My side walls have rubber seals all the way around the slide openings. These are in contact with the slide walls, and top and bottom. Then there are rubber gaskets on the stops that press against the walls at each end of travel.

The 300 rating was for our Winnebago that has a "flat floor" slide. When the slide goes out it also drops down. When retracting it has to lift up of course so the weight limit in your slide may not be the same.

I had tools and some other heavy stuff stored in there that didn't get a lot of use since it is the driver side. I put more used stuff on the passenger side where the door and outdoor living is. None of the other compartments hang off a slide.

If its junk get rid of it. We keep all the light stuff that we use under the slide compartment. No "junk" in this rig.

Even before I posted this thread I had requested info from Fleetwood concerning my slide. It is all fairly generic and gives no details concerning adjustments. I'll check the Power Gear/Lippert site but I'm sure they will have nothing. My guess is that they provide that system to several different manufacturers.
You don't mention what type mechanism drives the slides; electric or hydraulic. For 15 year old slide out mechanism 20 - 30 seconds is not that bad. As long as you don't hear any screeching or grinding or see any wobbles while they go in or out, I'd say you are doing well.

Point taken. Electric.

If you have friends who make you laugh, spend lots of time with them.
