2000 HR Endeavor Rear Slide Motor Dumb Question

Since buying this RV in July the rear slide has always opened and closed just fine, however when the slide reaches the end of its travel, the gears in the motor sound like they start slipping and it will get a "clunk clunk clunk" sound. It does this for both going in and out when it hits the stops, it never does it during travel.

Question for others - is this normal/expected or not? I am assuming not and something I should look at. My front slide doesn't do this, but I was wondering if this was expected since it only does it at the stops.

I'm going through my slide adjustments to solve two issues on the rear slide - 1) it not being centered (it's all the way forward in its hole and 2) when fully closed the bottom is flush by the top is about 1" out, so it needs to tilt inward more. But I am wondering if the motor slipping may be part of my second issue.

That is normal,try to take your finger off the switch as soon as you hear the first sound.

Mine doesn't do that (Diplomat) but I have never been into the rear slide at all. So I don't even know what the gear looks like.

My 2008 Diplomat has done this since acquiring it 4 years ago. I was told it was normal and as RVTIP stated, I just release the switch at the first click. No issues so far.

My 2002 Windsor does that, I believe there is some sort of clutch that allows the gear to slip/jump. I've learned to release the button just before it reaches the end of the in/out stroke.


Not sure what slide you may have, it may be the same as mine. Here is a link to a manual that may have your slide, it has different types used by different manufacturers.

Here is a parts breakdown that I have for mine.

Here's the parts list
To get to the slide mechanism you will have to lift the bed and remove the cover over the box, probably ~6 screws holding it down. Check to make sure all the screws/bolts are tight

There are also rollers under the bed box that would be the problem and/or the floor of the bed box has started to fail.

That ratcheting noise was driving me nuts since new. After 11 years the plastic gear broke, I bought a new motor/gear assembly, and tore into the old one.

It is just a simple clutch with fingers ramping in and out of detents, causing no harm when making all that racket. I was sure I was doing harm, but not at all.
