Restore 98 Tradewinds 7370
I have a question regarding the slide out mechanism. Slide goes out half way, grinding noise, then goes no further. Pulls back in with no issue. I have pulled the gearmotor apart, verified that everything is OK, relubed it and reinstalled. Exact same issue.
I suspect that something is inhibiting the slide from moving further, and the noise is coming from the gearmotor which appears to have a built in mechanical overload mechanism that moves one gear out of contact with the next gear.
All visible rollers are OK. Does anyone have a pic or diagram of the slide mechanism, in particular the square tube in tube part that moves in and out. Is there some kind of roller on the inside end of the inner tube?
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
