Many threads on here about the electric motor bolt issue and several solutions from adding Loctite, washers, and other solutions. Newmar mostly uses their own design for their slide as they invented the slide mechanisms. I think on the newer high end lines they have partnered with HWH on the FWS’s. So it all depends on what you buy as to what you get.

Just replaced my Kitchen Motor. I tightened the bolts, sent the slide out and in multiple times. All is good and lined up. Then removed the bolts one at a time and used red thread lock. Some say they are a pain to get off but If I have to take them out, I will probably need a new motor. Since the housing is an alloy or aluminum, I wouldn't try to torque them very hard.

This is TSB 472 on the bolts. 5/16" torqued to 19 ft lbs and 3/8"33 to ft lbs.

As far as Locktite goes use any color you want but the fact remains that in over six or seven years none of them work. The only way to be sure that they do nor come loose is to wire tie them or use some of the other methods described here. My 2015 had them all wire tied and that was in 2016. I have stayed in touch with the present owner and to date they are right where we wire tied them. Wire ties work for the USAF and the aircraft industry as a whole. Without fail.
