Slide-out gearbox jumps gears

Our bedroom closet slide doesn't want to go in and out with out help. It seems to slip or jump gears in the motor mechenism. The part # on the motor is 24806 but not having any luck finding anything, if I don't find out anything here I guess I'll just call Newmar.

A close friend had this happen to his 5th wheel. It was covered under warranty so he took it to Giant RV and they replaced the drive mechanism. I think it cost about 1K. Very labor intensive. I don't know the underlying cause and they are unavailable right know. Local RV service repairmen wouldn't touch it.

A common problem with some Carriage Cameos. The cure is to pull the motor and slot the mounting holes for abetter gear mesh, then Loctite the mounting bolts.
