    Bedroom slide

    I have a Reflection 323 BHS and I think the master bedroom slide is not closing quite far enough at the bottom of the slide. Can someone please post a picture of the bottom of your bedroom slide while closed? Thanks Bill

    Good morning Bill!
    McClain RV in Rockwall TX has a picture of our 337RLS with a similar condition, although it was only the bottom corner at the front. We dealt with the slide having difficulty closing the last inch or two for a couple of months, with me (Steve) pushing the outside and Lynne operating the control. I communicated with Dean Brovont who sent me printouts of LCI diagnostic sheets and controller programming instructions. This helped for a bit, but soon the slide refused to close completely. We took the unit to McClain's for ou Atwood furnace inoperative, they changed out the furnace control board (twice, bad part), and diagnosed the slide issue as stripped gears. They ordered parts through LCI, it took at least two weeks for them to arrive, but unit was fixed in a day. I know you asked for just a picture, but I have wanted to post this for a couple of weeks to ask the community if anyone else has has Schwintek slide issues.
    McClain's has the commitment to highest priority service form posted in their service writeup area and another copy in the customer waiting lounge. They delivered on their part of the promise, we were treated well in a quick time frame as soon as parts arrived.

    Bill -
    I have the Schwintek slide mechanism in the bedroom of my 337.
    The third time the slide was extended, it did not come in straight, or all the way.
    I recycled it several times and it eventually came in almost all the way.
    When I had it back to the dealer, they worked on it. They ultimately said they found a piece of construction debris blocking the slide track.
    There are some videos on YouTube about how to re-synchronize the Schwintek slides to correct the condition you are experiencing.
    If you can't find them, I'll see if I can. I suspect there are a couple of other threads here on the Forum on this subject. You can search "Schwintek" to find them probably.

    Thanks for the replys. My slide works fine, however the rubber bubble seal at the bottom of the slide is hardly compressed when in the closed position. I have no water leaks but can fit a finger under the lower slide trim easily. The top of the slide definately closes 1" tighter than the bottom. Perhaps I should leave well enough alone? Suggestions?

    Bill--attached couple pics from our 303. We too thought this lower area protruding out more than the top was an issue but GDRV reviewed along with dealer doing warranty work last fall and said was OK. Still seems top and bottom s/b same in my way of thinking.

    Ours is out more at the bottom than at the top, but maybe half of what Dan's pictures show. I asked about this at PDI and was told this is normal. Our curb side slide is out at the bottom more than either of the other two . . . about an inch . . . but dealer says this is OK too.

    X2 - what Rob said for my unit on the Schwintek bedroom slide. The other two large slides both close completely on my unit.

    Fortunately the main electric slides are very easy to adjust to get then the same top and bottom, side to side. I think that the Schwintek slide can be adjusted to be the same top and bottom though it's a much more complicated as in disassembly of both drives. The side to side squareness is the accomplished with synchronization of the 2 motors.

    Has anyone measured Schwintek slide when it's fully extended to see if that same difference exists top to bottom as does when it's closed?

    I will take measurements on ours in the AM and share them, as it has new gear "racks" in all four positions on the outside of the slide. From memory, the rubber is evenly compressed top to bottom and front to rear (hope you can visualize what I'm saying)! The rubber compression is, in my opinion, the critical factor in figuring whether the slide is properly retracted.
