Bounder 38V Full Wall Slide Motors Needed
I purchased a 2007 38V Fleetwood Diesel Bounder New back in 06. I have never had a problem with my full wall slide but recently broke the Power Gear on the small bedroom slide. Easy do it your self project which I did but it left me concerned about the full wall slide. I am a spare parts guy so I thought I better travel with a spare motor which is PN 524120. I have done endless searches without success but I did find one cross reference that said it was replaced with a 1010000803. I called both Lippert (formerly Power Gear) and Fleetwood (formerly Fleetwood) and both told me that both slide motors were discontinued and there is no replacement. No motor, no help and we're really sorry.
There are hundreds, possibly thousands of Fleetwood Pace Arrows, Bounders, Providence, Expeditions and Discovery's with the same full wall slide system probably 2005 to 2010+ using the same Power Gear slides on this full wall and they are all obsolete with no replacements. These 3 motor systems are synchronized with on board computers programmed with stop and returned points and wall locks. This is a serious problem for a lot Fleetwood owners with the unknown lurking but with no answers. I am disillusioned with Fleetwood who tells me they no longer support the products because they have had new owners since 2010.
It takes 3 people to manually override by turning 3- 3/4" bolt heads 1/8" turn in sync and I don't think it can be done in the field. Fleetwood owners you may have to just walk away from your investment and I guess trash heap your motorhome. Better think twice before you spend 180k like I did and not have support. Any ideas out there? Before you tell me ebay this is a 3 motor sychcronized system and not a 2 wire. It's 2 power and 4 wire back to the computer I'm guessing from each motor.
