Schwintek going bye bye with JAYCO

Heard today that JAYCO is doing away with Schwintek slides due to too many problems. Also heard that on a Winnie with a full wall slide the vertical shaft actually twisted on one of the Schwinteks.

Dealer's service dept when we were discussing the new DESIGNER.

That is real freaking nice. My Pinnacle has a ship date of Oct 14. I am sure it is not in production yet. I have e mailed to see if the one slide with tv refer and stove can be upgraded to 500 to 1 with steel shaft. Waiting to hear back. The curb slide is the bottom driven with electric motor and shaft tube. Like all have said the light bedroom slide is not been a problem. I can see where if not level u can jam a slide. My 30 ft TT when not level doors will bind from frame flex. My TT is alum siding which I really like. Why do they not do the same on large FW's

I just called Jayco and there tech service dept has not heard that yet. Am waiting for the sales dept to call me about the upgrade to 500to 1 motor with steel shaft. I was told that a ship date means my unit is being built but how far along only sales dept can tell me

This will be good news for any upcoming NEW owners. I just paid $200 for a replacement Schwintek motor on my Pinnacle's entertainment slide. (Some day when I want to rant I'll let you know why I think my Pinnacle is a POS.)

It will probably take awhile for the changes to occur. We where discussing the new DESIGNER and I said it looked good, but I hoped that they weren't using the Schwintek slides. That is when he said that he heard that they were going to quit using them because of the problems.

The Schwintec system really looks like a good system. Use stainless rails a good motor and shaft and it will do as required. Use a junk motor and u get problems. Weight is a big factor and Hyd is good but heavy. U cannot tell me that if u used a well made Schwintec system and a well built slide with composite floor and big heavy duty rollers and a double channeled seal that u would not have buyers lining up. And it would only cost 100 more per slide

True, but that problem is on Lippert's end not JAYCO's, as I said the service tech said the shaft on a Winnie full wall slide actually twisted.
