Slide Out Motor Replacement
I own an ‘05 Southwind 32. She’s been great, but recently had the large slide out stop extending about 1/3 out. Slide out would still retract successfully.
It’s at repair shop. They diagnosed that it was the motor, not rails or chain. This was determined by disconnecting the motor, and manually operating the slide out. It worked smoothly as a result.
Thus, motor replacement at $1,100, and another $1,100 for “2hrs diagnosis” and the remainder for remove/replace old/new motor.
I believe the shop charges approx $134/hr labor.
I’ve not performed this repair - but on face value, I’d like to ask if y’all think 8+ labor hours to complete this diagnosis & repair is accurate/fair?
Thanks in advance & safe travels!
