Slide out bolts

I checked my slide out bolts yesterday. I am pretty sure this is the first time they have been looked at since new! Two motors on the kitchen, two more on the full wall, and one on the bedroom... all motors having four attach bolts. I was able to put almost a quarter turn on all mounting bolts.
I think for the age, 2017 and miles 3750, they are doing what they are supposed to do.
Last time out I listened for any banging noises when retracting the jacks. All was quiet. I am going out again next weekend, and will report back.

Honestly, your lucky, my 17 did not receive any loctite and the first time I looked, 6 months, they were all a half turn loose. I tried loctite and after 6 months the bedroom slide motor was loose. Switched to the studs nordlock washers and flanged nuts. 6 months and they were loose. Installed stage 8 and itís been a year and no movement. I did use the longer 1 inch bolts. Iím thinking this is the answer!!!!!

What 1 inch longer bolts in replace of the Stage 8 bolts? If so where did you source those?

I have not checked.

Will they fit in the 1/2 head bolts motor for DutchStars?

Yes, I have 3 motors, 2 on the kitchen slide and one for the bedroom slide, all are 1:2 head size and come from the factory with 3/4 in long bolts. Mine is a 2017

So the 1Ē gets close to the bottom of the hole?
