2017 LA kitchen slide

Down in Key West and Forward motor on kitchen slide bushing is either loose, motor bad or gears possibly stripped. I had up to a 1-1/4 open ended wrench but that is too small. Does anyone know the proper size wrench so I can hopefully find one down here.
Thank You,
David

The wrench is a 1 1/2 inch. A crows foot works best when working on the slide nut.

Check the bolts holding the motor assembly. Mine became loose allowing the motor to skip teeth in the bracket.

I had a 1-1/2 crows foot and wrenched shipped to key west. Bushing was right.
When getting ready to leave, I had the wife hold the IN button, I noticed the front starting to lag and gave it a 230# push and over did it, so told her to go back out. It came back in but rear had barely a reveal and the front of slide had a larger reveal.
I have ordered a new motor from Newmar, but now I am concerned of how do I get the slide re-centered in opening.Click image for larger version

Picture with ladder is rear of slide, it also bent out a little piece of painted plastic, I pulled it off to replace if I can get this slide centered. The cogs are good and the cog grooves are good. Is this something anyone has done, or should I plan a trip to Nappanee?

We just had both slide motors replaced at Independence RV in Winter Garden. They did a good job. However, they dont like to install customer provided parts.
Good luck

No dealers could see me until April, so just passing through Florida that was a no go. I can live with the kitchen slide in until we get to dealer or NAPPANEE. Just wanted to know if others have repaired this slide on their own?
