The shaft is also aluminum. Stainless side rails good motor and stainless or steel shafts and that would not happen. Steel will rust big time and stainless is more than aluminum. That is why the slide shaft twisted on the Winee it is aluminum. There is a lot of weight to a slide and off level rv frame will twist and cause a bind. It is a catch 22. Either use stainless or junk aluminum. I could see steel tracks with every RV having rust stains down the sides . What sucks is money is bottom line. I would gladly pay more for a good slide and the RV companies would save money in warranty work but that is why most give One year. Bottom line profit

I do know that but other RV web site have polled on slide failures and it is not real good. Make it better it is a real good system but designed for low cost and that does not work

Heck, even mobile suites went to the cable drive. Dealer we've dealt with several times said they'd rather work on the cable drive any day over a schwintek. I never liked schwintek. Be interesting to see what they come up with. I can't wait to see the new designer, and hope it's a recreation of the old travel supreme fifth wheel.

I guess I'm on the losing end too. Mine is at the dealer right now getting the Schwintek replaced on the kitchen slide. Also looks like this will put an end to my camping season. The dealer informed me there is a long lead time on the parts needed from Lippert and probably won't get the parts till November. So much for my week I had planned in mid October. I'm more afraid I'm now going to be stuck with this problem as long as I have the trailer.

Did you see my other post? A pic and the specs are on JAYCO's web site and it sure looks like a modified TS, just like they did with the ENTEGRA. 12' frame, 3" walls and totally enclosed slide mech. Waiting for the interior pics to get posted.
