Norty, Would it help securing those bolts by using some blue loc-tite? It may also be a good idea to either have a shop manual or contacting the actual manufacturer of the slide components and asking what the torque values are for those bolts.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw a torque value on the non-nylon bolts. It was 120 fp. I am planning on checking that out. I bought a few more spares at a local hardware yesterday, along with washers and std. lock washers.

I read another opinion that lock washers should not be reused when replacing grade 8 bolts. The ones originally on there had nylon locknuts and I reused them.

One time I thought that Jayco just did not tighten them up but after going thru this 2 years ago, I know they were tight and loosened up on their own.

X2.
I was told that by Jayco when I called them asking about a wiring schematic (which they e-mailed to me within a few minutes)

I also asked if it is ok to put the slide out a little when loading and bring it back in. They said as long as you don't put it out more than 8 - 10 inches, you can bring it back in. Otherwise, either put it all the way out or all the way in. They also said to let it ratchet for like 2 seconds when opening or closing.

So far every time I called Jayco, they were very helpful.
