It's been a true frustration for the first year of ownership. I always level the coach before extending and retract it before retracting the levelers.

Thank you. So much. Our Schwintek has failed at least 3 times. And spent months being 'fixed'. Never did I get any information about how to lube or re-timing. Not in the manual, not from the dealer, not from Jayco. Guess U Tube saves the day. And your finding and sharing this valuable maintenance info.

That makes sense, just a thought I wonder if you were to disconnect the battery, virtually having no power source for the RV if the slide would move manually (pushing it in). If so that would be much easier than accessing the motor leads.

No problem. The slide on my Minnie Winnie was a creaky mess. I spent way too much time trying to figure out what was wrong w/ it.

Thanks for the video Jopopsy! Just what I was looking for. I trolled around under the slide rubber for the gibbs but couldn't find them. I'll have to take a closer look now that I have the lube.

The only way I can see this being fixed is to re-position the gear in that track to be in the same slot in the track as the other three gears so that it fully compresses the seal, like the other three corners, when closed. Right?

I can answer that question for sure when I leave my site in two weeks. Right now I don't really want to try it.
Did you try it yet?

I used the Lube today on my schwintec slide, it eliminated the popping sound I had on one side and it moves in with out the motors slowing down.

Jopopsy, the Bigfoot levelers only action is to sound an alarm. At no point do they retract on their own. An alarm goes off when the key is turned on and that's it. Shifting into gear with or without the ebrake makes no difference. So in other words, you can attempt to drive away with the levelers deployed.
