Main slide issues

On our main slide the booth comes in but the couch does not, single motor runs two shafts on the slide to move it. Does it sound like the motor/gear box or a bolt has broken? BTW I pushed it back in on the couch side so we could go home. Motor works as I said but it only powers one side of the main slide gear the other side moves by pushing it in now.

comments will help. Thanks.

Do you have to take the motor off to replace the bolts and what size and length are they?

I did not disconect motor,but I had to use a large cresent wrench to line the holes back up.Take out a good bolt for size,replace them all and carry a couple spares. when mine broke we had just got it and went for our first trip.I had tools but no bolts and had to use allen wrench in the hole to bring it back in. marc

Main Slide issue

I just had a similar problem on my 2005 Sea Breeze. There is a single motor with round shafts that mount to a square shaft on either side to drive the gears. The square shafts are telescoping and have set screws that hold them in place. The end of the square shaft slides over the end of the round shaft that has a square nut welded (supposedly!) to the backside of the round shaft from the motor.

If this is what happened to your rig, then all that needs to be done is to arc weld the square nut into place on the backside of the flattened drive shaft end. There is also a cotter pin that slides in the drive shaft behind the square nut.

Hope this helps.

Happy Trails!

Darryl

As an update, was the sheir pin, so replaced all with #8 bolts, all is well again.

Thanks to every one who made suggestions.
