Nice rig! I am pretty sure that the bar is designed to be the weak link in the chain so to speak. Allows this to break instead of something major. Hopefully it was something binding and will be an easy fix.

Wow, the room is awesome! That slider is a monster and it looks like you could tow with the electric motor that "tried" to move it.
Any idea what caused the slide to hang up?
That was quite an outing, hope your future ones are a little more boring.

Thank you for the documentation and the invite in to your home. Your pictures give us an education and insight. Even tough we may not have the same model we get an idea of how these RV's are made and it satisfies our technical diet!
Anything more on the Turbo issue?

I too am curious as to what could cause a bind great enough to turn that square tube into a twizzler.

I hope it's a simple solution.

Agree as it had to be something upstream that caused the failure.

We bring it in tomorrow and will post updates when we get them.

Great slideshow, except for that mangled, twisted piece of metal!
