It has been proven time and time again that the large heavy slides don't work well with the schwintek systems. Family member has a 2013 palazzo that required a full system replacement on the large slide. After replacement, the slide failed again after about 10 cycles. This time, the drive gear schredded a tooth on the drive gear which totally chewed up the track. These gears are manufactured by casting the gears instead of machining. Still waiting for a replacement to date.
My unit is a new 2021 tiffin that used a schwintek system on the large slide. After it failed several times, the factory at Red Bay told me it could not be fixed using the schwintek system, so they replaced it with the Vroom system under warranty. My large slide probably weighs about half of what my family members Plazzo slide weighs!
I haven't seen a problem on the small bedroom slides.
