Slideout motor fell off

Yup thats right it fell off. had the DW go to put the slide it today when we were packing up an all it did was slip the clutch an click. So i went in an looked under the couch to see what was up an there it was laying on the floor was still hooked to the shafs to the gear drives but the screws that hold it to the wall had pulled out.Tried to put the screws back in but they were stripped out(big suprise, not).Let me tell you its fun laying on the floor holding it in place as the DW inches it back in so you can go home. To me it looks like a bad design why put 4 screws in thin alum an think they are going to hold why not put a bracket to the floor to an have it held in two spots not just one( i am going to mod it so that it will have a bracket to the floor now). Guess the dealer can fix this to tomorrow when he's here fixing the awning motor at the house..I will get some pics an put them up of the before an after..

Now that's a first! Look forward to seeing the pics and how it was mounted from the factory.

I agree, very poor mounting practice for a drive motor assembly for this type of application.

Wow....sure seems to be Q.C. problems with some of the 2010's and 2011's for various reasons. I am the biggest Pro-Jayco guy out here but starting to wonder whats going on as are some others on this forum. I still have not had a single issue with my 2008 and have considered trading up to a 2012 313, but may be wise to keep mine as it's been trouble free so far.

I'm still planning on buying a Jayco simply because they have the only floor plan I like but I'm also concerned with the increased number of Q.C. issues. I'm also disappointed with they way they cheaped out on many items in 2012.

I wonder how many more will fall out?? It definately needs something more stable to bolt onto.

Eagle 330RLTS. I have a lifetime of "stuff" that has to be disposed of before I even think about pulling the trigger.
