Driver slide won’t retract

2007 42 QRP driver slide would not retract at front.
Called Tiffin as soon as I described the failure the tech said “sheer Pin”, he advised it is a 1/4” shank 1 1/2 “ bolt. The motor is under the slide visible from a basement in the center of the slide , there are two sheer bolts, one at the motor and the second above the propane tank easily reachable. Went to the local hardware store came home with a few grade 8 bolts, washers and nuts .
The old pin needed to be driven out but the holes on the drive shafts needed to be lined up by bumping the slide control button, a simple replacement was then performed, slide once again works fine.

Get the correct shear pins. Using a grade 8 bolt is will get you by but there is a reason they put in a shear pin. If the shear pin is softer than the grade 8 bolt next time it needs to "shear" some thing more expensive is going to break or twist.
