Thank you Lady for adding the link... I too never had an issue with the read bunk slides; just the living room one. When I removed all three of the OEM junk ones, they appeared to weigh less than the replacements. Since making this swap months ago, not once have the motors strained. The sound they make while engaged seems "healthier" too. Note: I have a quad-slide; however, the front bedroom is a different type of gear/motor.

Slide motor's fixed (actually REPLACED) by Camping World. Thank God I'm still under warranty - $1,250 fix!! The slide motor itself was $825!! Now, unfortunately, we're under a "blanket of snow" in Colorado, so I probably will not get inside "Big Eddie" for another four months Guess it's time to break out the skis and enjoy the mountains!! Hope everyone had a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving with your family and friends - safe travels to all on the road!!

$825 for a cotton pickin' motor? Was it gold plated and jewel encrusted? Dang!

Unhappy Slide Out Motor on Large Slide

Our 2011 Jayco Pinnacle is now in the shop to get the large slide motor replaced. We have used it 6 times since picking it up in July this year. I expected much better quality from Jayco. Disappointed to say the least. I agree with an earlier poster that they need to do a recall on the slide motors.

Was wondering if anyone has info on what is going wrong with these motors? Is it a gear problem, bearing, winding, brushes, or is it simply dying cause it's underpowered. Might be good to know so one can take appropriate action while still within the warranty period.

It is my understanding that the problem comes from China. The bean counters have struck again.

Mine still works and always has. It is just terribly slow coming in and trips the breaker from 1 to 5 times before it will come all the way in. It has always struggled since new. I think it is under powered and that is what my dealer told me. He he said the replacement is a much heavier duty motor. I will have mine installed sometime this winter when the dealer comes to my site to do it. They have the motor now and are just waiting for the right day to do it.

It is a simple fix. The biggest issue was getting to the shear bolts to make room for the new motor. Not touch room in the access panels that Jayco installs. Good luck with the replacements.
