Schwintek slide motor retention screw, where is it?

I own a 2015 Itasca Sunstar with Schwintek in wall slide system. Does anyone out there know where the motor retention screw is supposed to be located, outside or inside? The slide on one side would not move out or in and I suspect that the motor jumped out of its drive position, because maybe the screw came loose .

AFAIK it is on the outside so it can be removed if the slide is stuck out.

Do a search - there are a couple of YourTube video's about how the system is put together and how the bypass works.

You have the dead motor failure that is fairly common. Could be either the motor or controller.

There are lots of resources on the web, you can use Google to find them:

Mine was on the outside. One was missing from the unit when I picked it up and I found out after driving many hours. If this is occurring, you'll know because one side moves quite a bit while the other doesn't. If one side moves and shuts off automatically, it's a different issue.

If the motor has hopped out of its mount, you should be able to line the slide up pretty well, then push the motor back into it's spot. I was able to lift the motor up to see the 'notch' that it is supposed to fit in. Then I could push it back down. Since the screw was never in the motor, I couldn't just add one (I couldn't see where it was supposed to go and I didn't have the tools with me). I made little shims to stick above the motors so they couldn't bounce out of their mounts until I could get the screw put in.

Thanks, I can see the motor and lift it up and down, that doesn't look right, I am thinking if I don't find a screw location hole I will pack some foam above it to stop it from jumping out. Thanks again
