Removed both slide motors. Found one motor with a broken wire. Same motor with the broken wire was an odd ball motor that was not even offered from the factory. Obviously someone replaced this motor before and did a terrible job routing the wires. Going to get two new motors and cross my fingers. Thanks for all the ideas and tips.

Motors came...Installed 2 new slide out motors, re-caulked and installed all seals, made sure to reroute wires properly. Works properly!!!!!! Saved time and money verses taking to dealer for repair.

I had the same issue with the Bunk Slide on our '14 FS. Drove it to Indiana once to have Jayco look at it and still had the issue on the very next trip. Jayco shipped me the two 500rpm motors, I replaced them myself (pretty easy) and, knock on wood, no issues since...but this was after nearly two years of dealing with the issue. This was a big frustration every trip when pulling into our spot and having issues right off the bat with the slide. Jayco said since Power Gear bought Schwintek things have been a lot better so newer Senecas shouldn't have the issue. Glad to hear we are getting our issues fixed so we can enjoy camping more.

I could not agree with you more....
I was going to upgrade to the 500rpm motors but just decided to stay stock.
Took camping over Labor Day Weekend and slide out worked great with no issues.
Was a pain to repair myself but, have no real dealers around area to perform repair. I called a Jayco Dealer near by and was told that they do not service Senecas..I asked why and they said they do not even sell them due to high price. When I called another local dealer to ask about time table to get an appointment the first question they asked was if I bought the unit from them (I bought out of state)....I knew what was going to happen from there.....I was given an appointment date that was well over a month away.
Ordered parts, installed myself!!!!!

As always, necessity becomes the mother of invention, and you likely did as good a job as the service techs would do.

Could have been worse. A friend had his large slide completely fall out of his 5er onto the ground outside while deploying. Not a Jayco 5er. Haven't talked to him. I just found out second hand. That has to be a real bear to fix.
