Checking your slide out motor attachment

We were Quartzsite at the NKK "Gathering" and one of our Newmar owners had a lot of damage to his slide out motor and the frame were the motor attached. The problem was caused by the motor coming lose and then damaging the metal supports for the motor. The damage was so bad it completely let the slide come out when he was driving. His locking arms would not work and since I had the remote slide out control box from Newmar I was able to lock his lock arms so he could travel. Today I decided to check the slide out motor attachment on our Essex. The big slide motor was close to coming detached and all 4 bolts were at least 5 or more turns from being tight. I too was about to have damage done on the slide. Checked the rest of the slides and all motor bolts were lose. I am glad when we got home that I said maybe I should check the slide out motor bolts on our coach. Would recommend all Newmar owners check the slide out motor bolts soon and maybe once a year. Tom 04 Essex

Thanks for the tip TOM another item to add to the check list for this spring, when ever it shows up.
Road vibration can loosen up many items in these coach's, electrical connections is a good one also in load centers, transfer switch's, fuse panels for 12v systems and ground cables to chassis frame for a few.

Thanks Tom! When I get the coach back from Newmar (in for sidewall replacement) I'll make sure to check.

Hi Tom and thanks! I have an 04 Essex as well; I know where the front motors are but where are the rear slide out motors located?

The bedroom slide it maybe under your bed and wardrobe slide under draw section maybe.
The bed system may look like this. Go to the bottom of page.
This is the Newmar slide spec.
More info on slides in QT's 1 & 2.

As "007" says the bedroom slide motor is under the bed on the right side. Lift up the cover and the slide out assembly is there. I couldn't get to smaller slide in the bed room so for right now will see. All 3 other slide motors were lose.

Ok cool, thanks Tom and 007; getting the coach ready for Sturgis this year so I'll definitely
check this out. Can't imagine the damage can be done if these come loose and the slide out comes out going down the road! I feel bad for your friend there Beast
