Poll on SLIDES with cables

So far only one cable frayed, and that was on my dinette slide. It was my fault. I did not have the front wheels straight when I attempted to pull in the slide. Slide frame must have been "tweaked", and caused the slide to bind. deSanford

My small BR slide has cables and has been trouble free for over 5 years (knocking on wood). I have the video describing the cable replacement if necessary and doesn't look too intimidating. So, I like mine.

I have the 30' cable slide and it really bothers me. It doesn't move smoothly and the motor almost stalls when retracting it. Only had it for 7 months and 10,000 miles so far. I just know it will be a problem at some point so I plan on being prepaired...

When Monaco purchased Beaver MHs they came out with a full wall slide on their 40' models using a hydraulic system. Navistar used the full wall slide first with cables on their 36' Cayman MHs. It is now used in the Knight's and Diplomat's 36' MHs. It is lighter and cheaper then a hydraulic system. deSanford

My 09 Cayman has an hydraulic dinette slide and a cable bedroom slide. The dinette is much smoother in it's operation and I'm expecting trouble for the cable in the future. Sometimes, I don't understand their logic. Everything was there to make the bedroom hydraulic (Just had a couple of lines and a cylinder) but no they decided to install cable!!!

Well, I'll have to live through it.
