Let's play Name That Part!

Just got home from a camping trip with our 2016 Jayco Precept 31UL. Mom found this dirty greasy what looks like a heavy duty bearing with a threaded end between the driver's seat and pull out couch.

I did a cursory look thinking that it came from either under the driver's seat, the overhead bunk, the pull out couch bed or the kitchen slide and could not identify it's origin.

Any guesses?

Well if you just got home safely then it looks like you don’t need it!

That's usually my motto...mom on the other hand, not so much.

I'm no Master mechanic but I bet it comes from a slide out mechanism right close to the seat.

It's a slide roller. I had one fall out a couple years ago. Slide worked fine without it and I had it reinstalled during a service call.

Ok. I used a cheap inspection camera I had and I still could not find where it goes.

I have this feeling I'm going to be a thousand miles from home and having to push the slide in by hand.

It's a slide roller for sure. They can be a real pain to reinstall and often the slide needs to be removed to do the job right. This is a problem area as Jayco did not use any Loctite on the nut that holds the roller. If it we're me, I would put Loctite on all the threads/nuts when you fix it this time. The back and forth motion of the slide gradually unscrews the roller. It's not an uncommon problem. Sometimes you can see the foremost roller with the slide all the way out. Go underneath the slide and pull back the rubber at each bottom corner and look in with a flashlight. The issue is very tough access and frequently the slide needs to come out.
