Slide issue, suspect part
Merry Christmas to all!
I have been having a slide problem since picking up my Jayco Precept 36A in July of 2019. It has never not worked but retracting often the motor drags down to very low rpm as if it is struggling to move but then speeds back up as the weight shifts. This happens in reverse when moving out. This does not happen on the other two slides. I have been hoping it was just normal for it, but recently while putting it out I saw much more tilting and thought it may just fall out. It is the passenger side slide and is about 15' long.
A few days after this while doing unrelated stuff under the MH I found an unidentified part (pics) under the general area of the slide. Can anyone confirm this would come from a slide mechanism? I am now leery about pulling the slide in until I can find someone who can work on it at my house because if I can't get it in then I can't take it somewhere to be worked on.
We are still having 70+ days so it's parked at home with 50amp service at my house. I usually drive it around to rotate the tires and run the engine and generator every month when I don't go anywhere. Should I chance pulling it in?
