40ft MDTS Bedslide Issue
This is a new one for me so thought I'd share it with my fellow 40ft Alpine coach owners. We had the bedslide fail to open during our trip to the coast last weekend. Turned out the set screws [3/8"] that hold the bedslide cylinder in place [inside black tube] near the foot of the bed came loose. The root cause was a botched warranty repair made several years ago.
Two things to learn from this: 1] if you havent done it recently, it might be a good thing to check these set screws, and the hose connections under the bed to ensure there are no leaks.
2] It is possible to dismantle the bed frame and slide mechanism so the cylinder and hoses can be repaired, WITHOUT removing the slide from the coach. PM me for details.....
