Wow!!! Really? Not very helpful.

I have reviewed previous posts, including THOR, Winnebago and various trailers. The slide issues have been chronicled for a few years now, and seem to have peaked earlier this year. You are saying in your post that there are numerous new issues, but I haven't seen evidence of this, which is why I asked the question. If the posts happen to be new to you, but not new posts, then they shouldn't be presented as new occurrences.

Without a doubt, the slides are an emotional subject, but I wish there was less venting, and more meaningful information about failures, prevention methods, maintenance, operation, etc... other than level, lubrication and holding the switch.

At the TDC rally in Myrtle Beach the Thor tech showed us how critical the spacing is between the slide and frame. If the gap is too large the slide does nor properly engage. If it is not done correctly at the factory, the track on the slide can be shimmed to the correct spacing to ensure proper engagement. This is the most important aspect of Schwintek slide operation.

What you should do stream camper is buy a palazzo with the large slide.

My guess is you will learn all you need to know in very short order.

I took my lesson on mine. I'm a slow learner but I learned and paid well for my lesson.

Based on that --- who would do the shimming ?? I certainly agree with your statement. Is the shimming something anyone could do?

We saw a Thor tech do it at Myrtle Beach. Not easy and not a one person job. I don't know if CW service people know how.

Perhaps more important was that he showed us what to look for.

I expect that at the TDC rally next month there will be a lot of slide checking done and perhaps an opportunity to see the shim job in action.

Well I don't have to worry for myself but when I met with the slide expert (my assessment ) before I traded mine thats what he was showing me on mine. But I thought you were talking about an quick or easy shim. I got the opinion from my guy it was not a one man job also. Thanks
