Good news for Fleetwood Owners. I emailed PG about these slide out motor boots.
Cliff,

From us you can only get the complete motor and boot as this is how we bring it in here, we don't have it broke down to individual parts. If the coach is a Fleetwood, they can go to Fleetwood and can get a boot only as Fleetwood has setup the boot as a separate part number for themselves. If it is not a Fleetwood, none of the other OEM's have done this and they would have to purchase the complete motor. Thank you.

Good morning Bill and Tony. Hope you all had a Happy Holiday.
There is a member here at irv2 that said Power Gear slide out motor boots ( his are cracking ) are only available with the purchase of the entire motor. Is that true or is there an outlet for these separately ?
Thanks as always
Cliff

Others may be able to purchase from FW as well. It's worth a try.

I don't have the boots yet. still looking. thinking about fabricating my own. Thanks for the information Cliff. I'm sure others would like to see that.
Only other part I need is a new spur gear for the 3rd rail. Do you think I can order the part thru PPL Parts? They are a Power Gear distributor.


Thanks

My Power Gear motors are both mounted up high in the basement compartments or inside under the bed and not exposed to weather. I don't see how they would impacted severely by the boot cracking since the lever comes out through a long slit in the boot.

The lever releases the brake. The brake is electric.


The boot does keep some dirt out but not a big deal.

Just take a large Zip lock back and put it around the motor and use a zip tie to hold it in place.

The three power gear motors I'm referring to are outside, at least #1 & #2 the gear on #3 is in the electrical compartment.

This is just a thought.. There is a produce heavily advertised on TV (Flex Seal) I have a can of it I bought for a project where I felt it was the ideal product (Turns out I was right).. This is a spray on rubber coating.. Well when I got done with the job I bought it for I had a good portion of the can left over.

My sewer hose, on this site (I have different hoses depending on how long I need) is the original hose that came with the RV,, Long ago I cut about a foot off and made a "Sewer end" adapter of it so I can use assorted extension type hoses. Well this short section had a couple of pin holes.. Sprayed it down twice, No problem since.

I had some damage to my car, this resulted in the windshiled washer bottle rubbing against the front tire,, A major slice resulted,,, I put about 4 coats on that and it now holds fluid.

Wondering if spraying the boot with this stuff (When the jack is new) would keep it from leaking, and possibly cracking?

And check it annually or semi-annually

About 15 bucks a can. Wal-mart, Dollar General (Where I got mine) and other stores.

We have had members post here that have used it and claim it's been working.Personally I'd rather have new boots if possible.

I have been unable to get the rubber boots for the original style motors from Fleetwood or power gear. The updated motors ( larger diameter motors) the boot is available. I' m going to order the new style boots and modify them to fit mine my motors.
