Super slide Motor replacement tips

I have a 2017 Anthem 44B and my drivers side front (super slide) motor is making some bad sounding noises. So I have a new motor on order and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on the best way to replace it.

For example should I have the slide retracted or out (I assume retracted but have never done this). Other tips?? Tools needed

Thanks

Van

Retracted, but out a couple inches to take the tension off. The top two holes are slotted, but Iíve never been able to get the motor high enough to get the bolt heads in the slots without taking them completely out.

Here is a post I found, Thanks to The TAJ. It gives some great detail and steps.

Slide motor replacement
I did this repair in Skagway Alaska but didnt have cell or WiFi to update

Any way just before my warranty ran out my big slide DS decided to not open more than an inch before clicking. Quick call to CS and they sent parts out to one of the future US campgrounds and I proceeded to replace the sprockets. Fortunately I figured out that all three existing sprockets werenít missing any teeth, before I started doing any undoing.

Another call to CS determined I needed a new slide motor. It caught up With me a couple of US campgrounds later and in Skagway I decided despite the rain to replace the motor.

It really was simple but I wish someone had told me the order to remove the bolts so here goes

First loosen the bolts holding the vertical bracket to the basement roof. You donít need to remove them but remember they are driven into wood, not metal or nuts. This will allow you some movement with the motor.

Next loosen and remove all four bolts holding the motor onto the bracket.

Now the shear pins are holding the motor in place. Pull the cotter pins out of each shear pin and the remove the shear pins. They may have really gotten stuck in there so I ended up using the slide remote to ďbumpĒ the motor to move the shear pin where I could punch it out.

Now you should be able to push the motor one way to get the shaft out of the drive pipe and then push it the other way to remove the motor completely.

Carefully unwrap the wiring, cutting it close to the connector so you will have plenty to reconnect.

Reverse these steps to put new motor on. Connecting it to power will allow you to ďbumpĒthe motor again to get the shear pin holes to line up again. Donít forget the Loctite on the motor bolts!

The job really was just remove bolts and replace them but if you donít do it in the order described, youíll be redoing several of the steps above. DAMHIK

Sorry I didnít get any pics. I was sitting in water while getting rained on and wanted to get job done. Weíd been three slides for three weeks and DW was getting tired of the cramped quarters, or as she liked to say, now we have a Prevost and I donít like it.
Plus sheíd been driving our toad for a few hundred miles since we had a major failure of our blue Ox tow gear but thatís another story.

Hope none of you ever need to,replace a slide motor, but if you do, I hope this helps.

After replacing the slide motor I looked over the motor I removed to see what the problem was. Apparently somehow the wires had caught up into the moving pieces. I took the motor apart and reconnected the entire motor, checked it for operation and itís now the spare, forever gathering dust I hope!
