Your welcome.
You can also remove the drawers in the kitchen next to the bathroom wall and look with a flash light at the wires and plumming to see if there is any leaks.

The kitchen in our '06 Mandalay is on a slide. Coming up on 9 years old in June. No problems at all.

We've owned two coaches with the kitchen in a slide, for a total of 13 years of half-time RV travel. Had one problem - a drain line that was a bit too short and eventually cracked the pipe fitting where it attached. Not hard to fix once I figured out where the water was coming from.

One can always argue that placing the galley in a slide adds several more things that can break as they move, and that cannot be denied. However, it does not seem to be significant source of problems. Heck, the slide itself is an extra piece of machinery that can break and needs maintenance. At some point you have to decide whether the increase in convenience or space is worth the slight extra cost in future maintenance.

I agree with you Gary RVRoamer and an hour or so of pre-trip maintenance or service will go a few thousand miles. I did figure though that if it was a real issue, the manufacturers would have fixed their problems. I am sure there are a few mfgrs that read some of these forums and pretty sure they don't want to see negative things about their products. Anyway, saturday I am going to look at the Monaco I was in question about and will let all know what I find. Thanks all

Have full wall slide that includes the residential refrigerator and kitchen. No problems but a word of caution if camping in freezing weather. On mine, the hot and cold water lines that run to the kitchen sink and are exposed when the slide is extended are prone to freezing. I have managed to prevent this with a small heat light clamped to the slide in freezing weather but just thought you should be aware. The lines on mine are "pex" and provide some protection(not as prone to burst) but they will freeze up if camping in freezing temperatures.
