X213 update on un-level slide

Just a quick update regarding my un-level slide issue that I was having on my X213. I know I have read that others on JOF have had problems with the slide as well.

I had a new Slide Motor installed under warranty by my dealer and the problem seems to be solved. I have extended and retraced the slide several times and it seems to extend fully with the new motor and levels out every time. Slept 2 nights on it as well with now blood running to my head.

Attached are a few pictures for anyone wanting to compare what they have to my new one. New motor is silver, old one is a gold colour.

Where is the motor located at - and what was the bad motor doing that caused you to get a new one. My slide goes out slowly, about the same speed as the awning.

thanks

Reason for the new motor was that the slide wasn't going out all the way. It always seemed that the motor wasn't strong enough to push that heavy slide. It was slow to deploy and wouldn't go out all the way in turn not leveling out. It took a few trips to the dealer to get the point across to them and actually get it figured out. They did a few adjustments to the slide as well.

The Motor is located right underneath the foot of the bed, under a black skirt.

Riverbum, my slide was very inconsistent in it's distance traveled, some times it would be an inch sometimes 2.5 inches from going all the way out. I don't know the size of the new motor, but will have a look next time I am in there.

I checked mine earlier today - my motor is silver - hopefully that means there will be no issues. When yours is fully extended, does it click - same clicking when it is all the way in.

Mine does click when fully extended and retracted....I operate it when I am plugged into my truck while it is running instead of the RV battery

called my RV dealer yesterday and explained the problumes that I was having with my slide. He sent an email to jayco. First they told him to try a 30amp fuse in place of the 20amp (hmm not sure how they think this will help?) . But anyway the dealer told me he has a new motor on the way. It sure is nice when you buy from a place that cares even after the sale is done.

I will let you know how it goes

213 Slide

Just got our 2010 213 back from the dealer. Slide had worked fine for two seasons, but on our first trip out in early June it started stalling four to six inches from being fully extended. Got it in with two weeks left on the warranty,Our Jayco dealer installed the same new silver motor as seen below and a new 30 amp reset fuse, at no charge and with no fuss, considering we brought the unit in at the peak of their pre summer rush. It seems to work fine now. Just couldn't help myself, after they handed me that repair invoice with no charge, I still ended up walking out of there with about 200 bucks worth of stuff that every RV owner just has to have, sigh.

I have to take mine back. The new motor seems to be tripping some sort of internal breaker (if there is such thing) while it is going out and in. I get it almost all the way out and the motor stops. Wait for 10 seconds, I hear a click and the motor is back functional. Push it out another few inches and it trips again, wait ten seconds, click and out it goes again. This goes on 3-4 times before the slide is fully extended (or retraced). It's almost like the motor heats up too much and needs a break so it cuts out. Stay tuned...

Just finished winterizing our unit & storing it for the winter. Our rear slide ran great all season with the new motor. I had also bought a spray can of slide lubricant and sprayed the gear rails, seemed to smooth operation of the slide out considerably.
