Default which bedroom slide system?

2007 Gulfstream 8295 Independence. My bedroom slide wont retract. The motor runs but no slide movement. I was able to easily push the slide back into its stowed position. Does any anyone know what system this is? The motor is under the bed but I don't see any cables or any other mechanism to drive the slide.

I have a 2007 36’ Gulfstream Crescendo Model 8356 and the bedroom slide is electric. It has 2 cables that connect to the outside of the slide. They will slip out easily if they are touched. I am not home or I would send you a picture. With the slide deployed see if there are 2 cables hanging down.

I have a 2006 Sunvoyager 8339 with the same problem. I can’t tell if the motor is the problem or a roller seized. There is a gear track on the bottom of the slide and the motor must have a gear like a starter but I can’t tell for sure until I remove the bed and get down inside the frame and operate the slide. If I get to it this week I will respond to your inquiry and let you know what I find. Our coaches are a year and it sounds like we have the same system.

I have the motorhome ticket in tight until these storms blow over. I donít see any carriage, candles or tracks on the outside. I know the motor is good but I still havenít determined the type of slide it is.

Hello I have the Atrium 8410 SE. And the slide is electric motor that runs a gear in the center that moves the slide in and out. With no cables.
First you need to determine if the gear is also turning when you hear the motor running it's just a gear that moves the slide. Look for a shear pin or set screw to keep the gear tight on the shaft to move the slide..
It should be that simple unless something binded and caused the gear or shaft to break.
Hope this helps out a little!!

Well I finally got my bdrm tore apart. What a disaster. All the welds on the aluminum frame are broke and part of the plywood sheeting split. Easy fix. Once that was taken off I discovered my slide problem, the motor housing had cracked and when I unbolted it, it fell in 2 pieces. I unfortunately had to call Lippert (Power Gear) and they cross references the part number and I ordered it to the tune of $1168.00. While I wait for the part I am going out looking for a job (Ha Ha). I hope you have better luck with yours. My motorhome is just like me, getting old and need new parts. Good Luck.

Oh goodness! You do have quite a little project! But mine was no walk in the park. You can't trust what people tell you when you buy something most of the time it's sad to say. I do still want to replace one more area of flooring for cosmetic reasons as my coach is 17 yrs old. But it has taken a year to get it back into shape and updated. But it was truly worth the effort we really enjoy it now..and I'm not considered old yet lol but I'm definitely feeling it, things that took 10 mins now take an hour! But I'm still getting it done...good luck and I hope to hear more of your progress!

During the chassis service the mechanic removed the motor and discovered the roll pin had sheared. Easy fix.
