KMG Slide Motor repair Entegra Anthem

Hello to everyone.
I was wondering if anyone has repaired a KMG slide motor for an Entegra Anthem. A gear inside the gear housing broke. Looks like a 20 dollar piece. I would hate to purchase the whole thing. Does any one have any ideas?

The motor rights are owned by Entegra and can only be bought from them, the company that builds them can’t even sell parts, such is life.

I have been on the forums since the Travel Supreme days with the same question asked many times. I have yet to see a source ever posted for gear replacements. It's crazy, but ebay might be the best bet for finding a gear box from a burnt out motor.

Gear diameter, thickness, number of teeth? I bet you can order one online somewhere.

Hello Chuck, 300 is a deal! I want to say I paid over 700 a year ago. Where can I buy one for that price?

I did find a motor at National Indoor Rv Center in Phoenix for $312! I was quoted $560 somewhere else so this was a great deal.

KMG Slide Motor repair Entegra Anthem

It’s all in where you try and buy the motor... some dealers hose you..
I personally bought a slide motor @ beaver coach sales in Oregon for 325.00
My repair shop was quoting me in the 900 dollar range.. it pays to do your research ..as it pays to read this forum as that’s where I saw a cheaper price posted..

Ours cost $559.00 in Minnesota from a Jayco dealer. They tried to order direct from KMG but could not. Had to go through Entegra parts. Saved the old one, the motor is good but the gears are junk. The slide system is designed as a "dry" system. There is no way to lube it to make less stress on the gears. It's a lose-lose situation.
