Rock and AZ_FBTS,

I am trying to recall what I said or, may have ment when I said you could tilt by moving down two holes and still retract. I don't recall ever saying that.

After extending the awnings, I typically adjust the tilt at one end or the other and tighten the knobs to avoid the awning from moving up and down due to wind. I am trying to recall what the holes are about because, the tilt adjusters slide.

At this moment, our FBTS is in Lagrange, IN at a place called Indiana Interstate Enterprises getting the slide room toppers installed in the next few days. It is also in winter storage there and most likely get Goodyear G614's mounted before our trip in the spring.

Wednesday when we went to the storage lot to get the FBTS for a trip, the super slide would not retract. It would come in about 2", the refrigerator side would begin lagging behind and the whole slide would stop. Tried extending and retracting several times. Had DW push to retract while I pushed from outside. Could not budge it. Called our salesman and he got service tech on the line with us. He suggested everything we tried. Finally got some additional help to push from the outside. We were able to get it in. We were headed out on a trip that took us past our dealer. They said bring it in when we got there. On the way to the dealers (3 hrs away), I trucker got our attention and was pointing at the 5'er. The front lower panel on the door side had popped a screw that secured it and the 2nd section and some of the silver insulation was out and dragging. Pulled off and used Duck Tape to secure for the hour remaining to the dealer. Service was waiting for us.They
got the unit in the shop and 4 of the techs started checking things out. After quizzing me on the slide (shore power, battery power, etc.) they started working on it. Slide issue turned out to be a piece of rubber gasket that got in the track. They fixed the panel and put the insulation back. They also found a screw that had popped on the other side and a panel was sagging. Fixed it also. Very impressed with my salesman, dealer and the service department. They had us in, made the fixes and had us on the rode again in a little over an hour. We arrived at our campsite about 2 1/2 hours later that what our original plan had been and had to setup in the dark. But, we feel/felt extremely fortunate to even being at the campsite. Kudos to the guys at Southaven RV in Southaven, Mississippi.

That is great service. Glad to here the slide was just a gasket. Was it an extra piece or part of the regular seal that jammed? I will be checking all my panel screws. Before my last trip I found two at the rear cap bottom that were driven thru the skirting but never made it thru the attachment metal just pushed that section up. Had to drill thru the second piece of metal so it would pull together. I spent an hour looking over the entire bottom looking for critter entry points. There are several I will be foam filling. I also will be sealing all the metal overlaps on slide bottoms to ensure no rain water can find its way in. Just like my TT the right slide when out leaves a big opening in the frame around the slide ram tube. U would think they would put a rubber seal around it. I used steel wool to fill the hole when camped and removed before closing. I was pretty sure that was where the mice got in my trailer. Wife was not a happy camper finding mice turds on the counter. Once they get in the underbelly there are a zillion was to than enter the coach. My TT underbelly was foam sealed in place. On this one it just lays tight in the frame rail. I am gonna use non expanding foam spray and just run it alone the frame rail and underbelly material. I also plan on leaving a dish of predator pee granules in the front compartments to keep any out of there

Rock, they didn't say regarding where or what part of a gasket. The gasket that is visible when the slide was extended was intact. Service manager said when we are finished for the season they would do a more thorough inspection and take care of our list of things we have found so far. That has to be a planned out trip. The dealer is 3 hours away. Regarding my post of last night...... Road not rode. Spell check makes us seem like we are lacking in language skills. LOL!

Glad your issues were easy fixes. Sounds like you have a good dealer also.
Almost sounds like maybe a piece of gasket material that got trimmed off.
Enjoy your trip.

I called Jayco yesterday and am waiting for a call back from their tech design dept. Most FW have the bedroom slide in front unlike ours which is moved back since bath is forward. I am questioning why my generator exhaust outlet is under my slide. Where it is would be fine if bedroom was forward. I told them I added a CO detector for the bedroom slide for a piece of mind. Told them it should be designed to exit at the very front. Seems really stupid to come out under the slide where u sleep

Have you experienced fumes in your bedroom while operating the genset? I run our genset monthly, and I have never noticed any reason for concern. I would be more concerned if the exhaust wasn't 4-5 feet from the bottom of the slide. Let us know what Jayco says.

As soon as I hear I will let u know. Looking under the generator I would of made the pipe angle forward than under the front as far forward as possible and stopping at the side. Just seems like they made one pipe to fit all configurations. I had two hard wired and two battery CO detectors in my boat. I am gonna add another detector so two are in bedroom. I just do not like how they did it.

To answer ur question, no I have never smelled fumes but u will not smell CO. Does your unit have a CO detector? All my slides are in but I just looked and all I found is only a smoke detector in living room and propane by the pantry. I am going to add another combo smoke/CO and mount in the bedroom. If u have a gas generator they should have put in a CO detector. Actually the generator should of been or had a diesel option which has very little CO. Where have u ever seen a big truck stop with a gas pump next to the diesel. I know all the big ones like flying jay are diesel only and I would not even attempt to go to the pumps that are by the cars that have an Rv island. Might pull in but good luck getting out with our beast.
