Slide Out Stoppers On Our 5r...

One major issue that needed resolved was the facia on inside of our 5r was pulled out (separated) from the wall near the bottom 3' of our slide out rooms.

After the walk through, we were not satisfied with the repair as you could simply kick the facia back into place. I do not think they did any thing to repair it.

The lead tech then spent the entire day pulling off all the facia on 3 slides and seen that it was not the first time an attempted repair had been made.

The entire day was spent fixing this properly and now it is like new.

The problem comes from NO Stops on the Slide outs and they are powerful.

I always monitor the cushing bringing it just to the touch surface of the wall then one more bump to snug. If you keep your finger on the button it will keep drawing it in since there are no stops on it.

Has any one else ever seen that before on your electric slide?

Carriage advises bringing in the slides until they just snug, then bumping it OUT. Check the outside to make sure the seals are still seated.

You didn't say what trailer it was, but I think you said they are all electric, independent motors?
When coming in, there is supposed to be a stop on the main screw so that it will hit the frame and be done. But either way, usually, the motor is attached to a gear box, and once that gear box hits certain resistance, it will clutch out and make racket.
I assume it's not doing that?

Yes it will go further and start clicking sound however the lead tech and dealership owner says that our unit does not have stops on them. They inspected them.

They tell me that if you take it to the clicking sound you have gone too far and will cause damage again.

Advised to just take it to point of touching walls and give it one more bump on the switch.

5r is a 06 King of the Road and yes has independent electric motors on each slide.

BTW, they are working great now just wish they had stops on them. I might look into getting them put on.
