Schwintek Kitchen Slide Out

The kitchen slide out on my 5th wheel has been nothing but a problem. It was repaired once under warranty when it failed. It failed again and I had to get 4 men to get it pushed in to get it back to the dealer - no longer under warranty. 2 weeks later it failed again. I no longer can trust this slide to work when I try to pack up and leave a campsite. This is the nicest RV I have owned but the most problematic. I have owned 6 RVs and never had a slide out problem until now. This 5th wheel has had very little use and stored indoors. May be time to cut my loses and get rid of this lemon.

Hi SD Texan. Could you add a signature to your profile so we can see your year, model and floor plan?



Also a search for "Schwintek" on this forum or any RV forum that has Schwintek slides will bring up many results.

We have the same slide profile with the pantry. Only difference is we have the residential fridge.

Read through this post and focus on what forum member Puddle Pirate did to resolve his kitchen slide problem. It may guide you to find the main source of the problem. Puddle Pirate had done the most complete and effective modification to resolve his slide issue.
One quick check would be to see if any of your rollers under the slide are broken. You can see them when the slide is out by looking under the flap from inside.

Occasionally I "mop" those rollers with 100% pure silicone and it really improved the movement.

What’s involved in “mopping” them. I’ve tried to spray them. Just makes a mess on the floor.

I use a very small sponge brush and dip it in the silicon and brush it on. Does not make a mess on the floor. 100% silicon is very thick and doesn't run. A flash light helps to see. The rollers are just about 2" from the edge of the floor of the slide when open.
