Not a silly question at all!

It's a brace that goes on the top of the slide when it's closed that wedges between the outside wall and the inside of the top of the slide to keep it in place during transit.

My trailer is not framed for a slide lock.

Some slides require slide locks to stabilize them. Some do not.

Well I dropped it off at the dealer and talked with the service guy for a while. I typed them up a list of the problems with pictures to show the issues. I also asked them to open up the back section where I suspect a leak to evaluate the condition. I also asked them to take pictures to document it.

I was very polite and just expressed my concerns and they never blinked an eye said they would get it taken care of and thanked me for the list so they knew what the problem was. Hr said his only question was when did I need it back. I laughed and said when it is right and ready to go....... Crossing my fingers but so far they are living up to their reputation of being great to deal with.

I see you are in Athans OH did you by chance buy from summitt RV in Ashland KY?
I am guessing your slide has two slide motors? This one only has one in the center which I have been told makes it harder to adjust since it doesn't pull from both sides?

I didn't buy from them but have been looking online at the new Jayco 2015 26BHS and they have popped up a few times.

The Schwintek mechanism uses 2 motors but I think the "other" kinds (whatever they're called) use only a single motor. Our big slide is 15' long and has a single motor. There are what appear to be many "adjustment" bolts underneath but I'd avoid tinkering with them at all cost. I'm the guy that can screw up an anvil with my rubber hammer.

Haha I hear you on not wanting to mess with them. Since it is under warranty they can have at it.

No news on mine yet but my Dad drove by this evening and said they had it hooked to the tractor and pulled out of the garage they had me back it into. Half tempted to call them and ask how things are going but don't want to bug them to much as I know they are busy. Inquiring minds want to know though

I called the dealership today just out of curiosity to see how things were going and what they had found. I talked to the same guy in service who was working on it and he said that the leak was from the nut on top of the black tank as it had loosened just a bit and had a small drip. They opened the bottom back corner up dropped the tank and took pictures of everything for me dried it out and put it back together. He said everything looked good and he had the pictures saved for me to look at.

They haven't started on the slide yet and said that is next on the list. I made a three page list of everything I wanted checked before taking it to them along with pictures of everything. He was super nice about it and said since I told him to take his time he has been working off and on throughout the day and making sure everything is good. He figured he will be done by the middle of the next week. So far I'm happy with everything I have heard so we will see what they find out about the slide and how everything looks.

Thumbs up

So I got the call they were done late on last Friday but couldn't get over there to take a look at it and check everything out until this evening. Anyhow went over everything with the technician and it is spot on!! They actually took the slide loose and centered everything up remounted it and then made the minor adjustments from there. The slide wipers touch evenly from top to bottom and I am thrilled!

Everything else they did was very well done and you can tell they took some pride in their work. Roof seams were touched up, I reviewed the pics of the bottom of the camper and they looked fine, I even had them seal the corner seams and they used different colored caulk on the graphic areas so it blends in appropriately. I am happy with the turn out and glad everything is now correct.

Glad to hear your 28 is now good to go and the slide only needed adjustment. Now time to go camping!
