Slide update

Just received three new motors from Jayco. These are Klauber Machine & Gear devices. They seem like a hefty, well-built product. Hopefully the rain stops and I can tackle this project tomorrow.

I checked my notes... 03/22/11 was my first e-mail concerning the living room slide being stuck. 03/31/11 was a shipping notice and it arrived by a Brown Truck today. No complaints from me...

I dont have slides, but post a pic if you can when you have it torn down. Would like to see what is involved in the motor swap.

Picture update: iPads are GREAT! But, I am not having much luck posting pictures from it. Plus, my wife tells me that the camera's disk had been "formatted" and wiped out my install pics. Not too worry though, I have two more motors to tackle today and can use my phone and snap some pics.

In the meantime, I have attached a hyperlink, in my signature, that will take you to our bloodspot. There DW has some assorted pictures, but, not the motors - YET!

I apologize if I missed it, but with your rig being a 2011, why are you replacing the motors? Shouldn't your dealer be doing this or another Jayco dealer if you are traveling?

@ Ed: it is a warranty issue; however, the slide is stuck open as it sits in my yard. The local dealer is not much help; I did not buy from them, so, they do not feel they should extend themselves for me. I have complained to Jayco about this dealer and Jayco is willing to pay another service center for the repairs, but, I need to close the thing up first. I'm sure if I fight for a service tech to make a house call, I would probably have to pay first and chase Jayco for reimbursement. Bottom line - I feel more comfortable doing this type of repair myself... rather than having a service guy respond; force the thing closed to get it back to the shop; and have it sit "forever and a day" for it to be fixed. Plus, I live in the country (yes, Rhode Island does have a "country") and it is a chore to manage my 1000' driveway.

If it was something more than just a simple swap of parts and a tight squeeze of a work
area, I would be doing battle with the dealer/repair people. Besides, I'm newly retired -I'm up for the challenge!

NOTE: Jayco has been great to deal with. I am 100% positive that if I was stuck in a CG, Jayco would have done everything and anything to correct this issue. For me, one battle at a time... And in closing, like someone else mentioned, I will now know my rig better than I did before
