Kitchen in a slide

I have never owned a motorhome, just a 5th wheel with 1 slide. I am looking at what looks to be a real nice Monaco with the kitchen in a slide. What are things to look for? Do any of the drain lines, water supply lines or propane lines cause any problems due to moving back and forth? Thanks for any feed back.

My coach has the kitchen slide, never any kind of problem. A well engineered and made RV should have no issues with kitchen slides, they have been around a long time.

Our Travel Trailer had a kitchen on a slide. No issues related to pluming or anything else I know of. Of course, it had Schwintek slides and that was another matter.

Only little problem on mine, due to defect in design. The flex line
that is the drain for sink was made too short, and failed right away.
Simple repair to provide longer flex line, purchased from marine
supply store. Everything else has been fine, 6 years 65,000 miles,
over 500 nights of traveling.

Check the flooring under the slide by opening the storage compartment outside and feeling the ceiling. This will be the floor accessed through the storage bay.
If it soft, there is damage.

Really happy with our Monaco.

I own a 2002 Windsor with kitchen in the slide, I have not had a problem.

I also belong to the Monacoers Yahoo group, there was a report of a problem this last year with several owners chiming in saying that they had problems also. One of the members posted a write up as to how he fixed it. The pipe that the flex hose attached to developed a leak from having too much stress on it. The fix entailed taking the cabinet apart enough to get at the problem.

I do appreciate all the replies. TMan59, I'll be sure to check that, thanks for the heads-up. I figured this would be a good place to ask questions. Many thanks to all.
