While we will never reach the numbers of the auto industry. What does it take to get a recall on something? It's not a saftey issue which most are but with "all" these motors wearing out it's proabaly only going to keep going. If it's a known problem it should be addressed regardless of warranty. I'd be curiuos to see if the motors in question are all the same model, from the same supplier which is where the pressure should be put by Jayco. Or is it a simple design flaw with an underrated motor being applied to these monster slides?

I remember reading your motor issues Steve. My dealer has the new motor and has agreed to come to my home base to install it, 30 miles. I will be here until spring so I'm in no hurry to push them. They have been super.
I haven't had any problems with my other two slides, just the larger one on the left side.

Just go my 2011 321RLTS back from camping world (Colorado Springs). They said they had to re-time it and replace the motor. After reading the entire internet, there have been several people with the same problem. I believe the motors are just junk(timing had nothing to do with it). One thing I found out, after manually putting the slide back in, using the 9 volt battery method, that the brake on the motor doesn't always re-engage. Yep, it slid out on me making a turn. Luckily it was only about 10 inches. My suggestion, if you have to put it in manually, use straps to ensure it stays put.

The old ones have a white sticker that clearly indicates "Made in China".

The slide motor on our bedroom slide is bad. It will be replaced on the 28th of this month. Both large slide motors struggle when bringing the large slides in.

I hope all of this shakes out before my warranty is up. I have 11 months left on my two years and then 3 more extended. I am glad the extended was offered as a factory promo when I purchased my 5'er.

I can't locate my notes (I'm in an area with limited Internet), but, I believe the replacement motors came from a US company.

Unhappy Slide Out Motor on Large Slide

We have a 2011 Pinnacle RETS that we bought in July. We had trouble getting the large slide in on the last two trips. We haven't gotten it back to the shop yet to see what the problem is but judging from the other posts I have read I fear the motor is bad. It extends fine but takes some manipulating to get it back in. We are afraid to extend it now for fear that we might not get it to retract. I love the fifth wheel and floor plan but am very disappointed to have these kind of problems this soon.
