Slide movement question

Our new 013 Itasca Navion 24J's slide is starting to shudder during retraction. It seems to be getting worse. I have looked at slide lube, not recommended!

Do the synchronous motors ever need adjusting?

Any feedback is appreciated.

My larger slide will shudder from the rubber sweeps. There are products from your RV supply shop that condition the rubber seals and sweeps. I do mine every 4 to 6 months and do not get shuddering anymore. Note there may be a sweep inside too. I spray the product on a rag and wipe the seals & sweeps.

If you have Schwinteck Slides, you may want to read this post and video.

The motors don't require adjustment. I lube both my sides and condition the seals. It seems to be the seals and sweeps that cause the shudder. Schwinteck now says not to lube the slides unless you have an issue. I can say that since I lube my slides, they seems to move quicker and smoother, which I would assume is easier on the motors. Mine have been working flawless for over a year and tons of use.
