Help Regarding Slide Out Gears

I think I may have a broken tooth or so on my main slide. Does anyone know if the gears are cast or are they other that perhaps you can screw in a replacement tooth?
If the gear(s) were to break all the teeth, can the slide be pushed in? I think if I recall, the manual retraction required gears.
I would appreciate any thought or knowledge on this as it is something I have never tackled.
I'm on the road heading west, so away from any home services.

Peter

Peter looking at this picture I would say its cast or poured steel.


Could a welder maybe weld a tooth?
Yours maybe different than mine.
If you have turning bar released and a pile of people with energy drinks they maybe able to get it up ramp.
See if Newmar will ship you one.

Great, thanks for the photos. Yes, it kind of looks cast. See if Newmar will send.........7 big guys to retract the slide?
Being cast, or at least one piece, means removing the shaft. Rats!
Well in the meantime, seeing I'm in the bowls of the Canadian woods, I guess I have to make what I can of it. That's my reason to appeal to the RV.NET Boys, HELP!
For now, at least until I reach a settlement that speaks English and does not look like cannibals, I shall try only to extend it (The slide that is!) more than the retracted elevation. In other words, the last 4 to 5".
In the meantime, I'm open for suggestions.

Have other people broke these and had them, or it, replaced? I will have to sign off now. It's dark, and the wolves are closing in. Anybody with any information, please post it.

Peter

They are cast, or at least every one I've seen is. Have never seen or heard of one breaking till now.
Takes lots of pushing to get the slide up the ramp, Newmar says 5 or 6 people.

Are you sure it's the outside gear (shown on the picture) or the reduction gear on the motor or the motor itself?

You are right. Looks Like cast sprockets and they are not broken, The motor gear reducer should be bolted in 4 points to a support bracket, the gear housing is broken where the mount studs go. I need a new gear box and, if not sold separately, a motor. Sorry being so long getting back. Just got in from a 770 mile run from Brandon Manitoba to Banff Alberta. Poor internet here. Thanks again guys.

Okay, thinking about this, there are not going to be parts available in Vancouver BC (On shelf) I'm going to Vancouver Island. There are no Newmar dealers on the island. Therefore, may be a do it yourself fix. Okay, The gear box is in the middle of the shaft, fdon't know if the shaft passes through or is separate pieces. I need to know how to dismantle the gear box from the shaft. If I can understand that, then may be I can order the gear box and install myself. Any ideas as to the assembly???

It is a Newmar designed slide mechanism. Thanks for the assistance but it is specific, I believe to Newmar. I need to know now how to remove the gear box assembly.

Hey guys, I really appreciate RV2.COM for their help and knowledge.

Newmar claims it's specific to them but I was looking in the Grainger catalog a few weeks ago for exacty the same motor/gearbox and it appears that there might be one there that would work. The only piece of info I needed was the RPM output of what I have. Cost was about $475 USD as I remember.
My main slideout still works but I have to halp it up the ramp by pulling inside or pushing outside, been this way since 2005 or so. Ii have it fixed once under warranty and it worked fine for a short time. Just hasn't been worth the $$ to fix it.

Good morning Peter.
For starters read this thread for same situation your in.
Your going to have to release the toque nuts both sides of shaft to get motor and gear box off shaft.
Page 6 may give you a better idea of what you have ahead of you.
You may need a crows foot to separate the parts off shaft.
This is what you will windup with.
I have added this thread to QT's # 1 & 2.

Okay, what luck! Traveland RV just outside of Vancouver is a Newmar dealer and happen to have the right gear box/motor assembly. They said they were booked into next week, but after some negotiation, they agreed to work it in tomorrow and replace it. It apparently is a 3 to 4 hour job. Hurray!!!!

And a big thanks to all of you and Traveland.

Peter
