Replacing a slide out motor?

I have to replace my power gear living room slide out motor and just checking to see if there is anything I need to be aware of or take caution with. It seems to be pretty much a straight forward swap out, but thought I would check first.

Thanks in advance

Too late?

I have a '07 Keystone Cougar I replaced the motor on, and it was two wires, two bolts, and out it came. Hope yours is as easy! My only "problem" was cutting the opening bigger in the underside covering - once I did that it was smooth sailing.

Older unit I had, the bolts had "Rusted in place" we had to cut some under carriage area away, to cut the bolts off.... real PIA... then re-weld everything back.

I appreciate the feedback. It actually is 4 bolts that mount the motor to the plate and the wiring. Piece of cake. It would have been even better if the brake release on the new motor worked. So, waiting again for replacement motor.
