Slide Roller Breakdown

Had the large slide out for a bit and went to put it in and the top behind driver does not budge more than an inch. Rear comes in and bottom front but slide kept getting more and more tweaked so I stop. Inspect up there and the small roller that the top track rides on has come apart which made the whole slide drop a bit and jam. Had to get a friend come by and he worked the button while I pulled from the inside because it did not help by pushing from the outside. That thing was wedged in there good but it broke loose and we got in in. I read all types of things to do when the motor breaks or something else but nowhere have I ever seen the bearing and roller go away. Now I have to get in to the dealer to have this diagnosed and repaired. What a joke, brand new coach and this happens. Not so fond of slides right now. And we were planning on leaving Friday morning for a few days of fun and relaxing. I am not a happy camper at this time.

Warranty should cover it but it is still a major pain. I would ask them to check all the slides.

My thoughts too, I want them to check the others to make sure everything is good to go. I do not want this type of inconvenience to happen again. And yes, warranty will cover it but I still need to drive it there in traffic, drop it off and then wait for the repairs. Frustrating to say the least.

I would like to know if you had the leveling jacks down when you was operating the slide?
I am working on developing a theory on what is happening to the slide gears.
I looked up information on your coach which answered my other questions.
