I am still fighting my problem but have decided to wait on warmer weather. I replaced the motor and transmission on the drivers side slide and it worked for a whille. Then all of a sudden (in Charleston WV on Thankgiving day morning) it decided to only retract to within about 7 inches of closing all the way. By the way, we were traveling from CO to DE for Thanksgiving.
Well, we rented a car and continued the trip to visit kids and grandkids. Came back after Thanksgiving and had a RV dealer look at it. They found a broken gear; got the slide to fully retract and we continued on home. I will call Host next spring to find out what parts to order and fix it then. I am tooooo much of a pansy to work on it in the cold. :-)
