Does anyone have experience with jacking up a full-wall slide (FWS) out to work on the gears.
We have a '13 Journey 42E and one of the gears on the FWS is stripping teeth. I have the gear, but cannot quite figure out how to get the weight off the slide to replace it.
Using a post jack I've tried lifting with the slide 6" out, half way, and then fully extended. In each case, the weight comes off the roller (next to the gear) and it spins, but there appears to be weight on the gear itself. I've considered loosening the motor bolts, but am concerned that, if there is still weight on the gear, I will not be able to get it back together.
Any thoughts or advice is appreciated. We full time and finding somebody to do the work has not been something easily done.
