4th Slide motor

Just got home from a trip a couple of weeks ago and slide worked fine on the trip...No sounds or anything else indicating a problem...When we got home we put slide out to empty MH and then put it back in...again no apparent problem noticed or sound indicating a problem...Then couple of days ago, my wife needed something in the Bdrm and went out to put slide out...and wouldn't go out...MH was plugged in so wasn't batteries...Took MH to dealer here and got call saying the "bushings" in the motor was bad...
This is the 4th motor for this slide...It is not like we are always putting slide in and out so use is not heavy...
Looking for any thoughts as to why this may be happening...getting frustrating...and expensive...Thankfully the 1st 2 times I had warranty which covered all but $50..but this time about $900..
all thoughts appreciated...

Sounds like it's too small or the gearing is not set correct for the weight it's moving to burn them out like that. Have you talked to the manufacture? See what there view is on the issue.

Your symptoms are the same as I have encountered in the past.
Does your coach have slide controllers?
If so, they are adjustable to get the slides in/out, that's all it took to fix my problems.
Mine are located in a front outside compartment below the drivers window.
Bad bushings, 4th motor...something fishy here for systems that get so little use.
