May not be bolts. Maybe lag screws were used

Those look like hex washer head lag screws

My guess would be lag screws also. We are camping and the Schwintek sounds so much smoother now and no drop in the kitchen floor!

I'll be checking mine out thoroughly when I bring it back home at the end of the month. I had to move it up north for a month to appease the bylaw people. I did notice that the J-couch extension portion was loose when I was in it though so that's another issue to look into.

I sent a text to my dealer on this. Told him I'll be looking at this when the camper comes in... Gave me silence. I have a feeling they're going to be a PITA

Sesimic 4212 Slide

Parts arrived for our slide upgrade from 300:1 to 500:1 motors etc.... as they were checking the parts after waiting 8 weeks for them Jayco only sent the left side, no right side parts.

Lippert has experienced a shortage it seems. Jayco responded that their has been a lot of Swintech issues?? Really

Looked at my 3 what we are calling frame supports on my 2016 pinnacle refer slide and they are perfect and are made different than ones pictured here. It makes me wonder if the issue is the supports or the distance of travel of the slide beyond the frame. I would think that if the slide weight was past the frame and hanging on plywood that better brackets is not the answer. The solution would be to add actual frame under the weight. Any thoughts?

Have any of these bending cases been on units with the lighter, gas/elec fridge?
Outriggers-Mine are bent after a 4,200 mile vacation (okay before I left home) and I have the camper fridge. The floor under the fridge area has dropped between 1/4 to 1/2 inch due to the outrigger.

We had new outrigger supports installed by a local weld shop (ok'd by Jayco) at the end of June. I promptly emailed a copy of the invoice(which we paid) to Jayco and was told the check would be sent out on July 5th. Well guess what, no check yet. I called Jayco and was told that because of them being bought by Thor all accounts are frozen. So, here I sit waiting for my money for something that they ok'd and wouldn't have been necessary if Jayco had just used the proper materials to begin with! Every day I get more and more disgusted with them. I cannot believe the accounts are "frozen"- they still have to buy materials and pay their employees! I'll bet the big shots got their money. Thanks Mr. Bontrager!

Wish they'd install heavier everything from the get go. BUT, everybody wants lighter, cheaper Etc, and that's what you get. I'm guessing lag bolts were used on the newer outriggers.
