New member and Coach owner from Apollo Beach Florida

Glad I found this site! Just bought my first Coach. A 2007 Fleetwood Bounder with only 20,000 miles. Absolutely immaculate inside and out. Will have to replace the large drivers side slide out motor in the near future as it struggles on lift up and goes in fairly good after. Click image for larger version

Well congrats cousin, 2006 35E here.

Previous owner replaced that slide motor with the biggest one they made. I still had issues and had my great tech look at it, first he said it was very dry of lubrication and emptied a can of CRC 03044 Dry PTFE Lubricating Spray onto to all gears and rails
CRC 03044 Dry PTFE Lubricating Spray

Upon further inspection he found the slide adjustment was out by 2 teeth on the rail from the factory. It would try to pull the front in first before the rear of the slide would move.

So he climbed underneath, pulled the cotter pin off one side of the motor. Then had me tap the "slide in" switch until it did 2 revolutions. He then put the cotter pin back in the motor and low and behold, bam. It was coming in much better and in sync.

Is a 2 person job so one can also look at the slide as it falls into the trench, then comes back out at the same time.

I have since lube it 5 more times in the last year and a half.

Some times, you can have the slide freeze (auto rest) integrated fuse block trip, juuuust after it comes out of trench. Lay off the slide switch for 20 so seconds to cool down, then hit it again, and it will come in the rest of the way.

Just a note, good luck finding any parts pre 2009 financial crisis when Fleetwood was sold to a hedge fund. From the biggest manufacture of RV's in the USA,, to a pause at "0" RV's. in 2009

You won't get any help from the (new 2010 on) Fleetwood,, clean slate. Post 2010 Fleetwoods dropped the anwar from the rear slide & the fridge & basement storage from the drivers side slide. Then switched to Swintec slide rails, entirely destroying the original design

The original design was a lot to slide in, but it also gave you a lot more than todays Bounder.

Best you could do is find new old stock, then let us all know the specs to reproduce the part.

A preverbal needle in a haystack part find. Yellowed aged packaging, looks like it has been hanging on the shelf for a decade.

In some small mom & pop shop in the middle of any town USA.

Welcome! I have a pre-'08 PA and can vouch for the difficulty in parts availability. You didn't specify chassis, but if it's a Workhorse like mine you'll also find a lot of help in that chassis forum. With only 20k miles on it yours won't need the work mine did.

I just went through the same issue. There are guides on either side of the slide inside your coach. You can see them underneath the carpet of the slide. They can easily come loose and cause the slide to jam or operate more slowly. Easy fix from the outside. Just insure that the guides are not blocking the lower trim of the slide.
