We3... do you have a Snowriver?
A Snowriver has a completely different slide drive mechnisim than any other truck camper...
It is propritary to only Snow river... invented by Bob M, he was the first to put a slide room in a TC.
Yes I do. It is the greatest TC ever made. When I had this problem I called Bob and this was his reply, so I just passed it on.

The best way to fix your slide is to measure the slide at the front then the rear. Object of course is to have both ends equal. Decide which side should come out (or towards you if you are outside. Move the slide halfway out, then using a small prybar and a thin peice of wood, place the wood on the moulding directly beneath the gear rack on the slide to prevent damage to the moulding and use the pry bar to lift up and out till you feel it jump one tooth. Then run the slide in and out and measure front and rear again. Unfortunately your year of camper does not have the adjustable slide rack. It sounds as if you have too little gear mesh on one side.If the problem persists To do a repair the gear rack must be removed (three bolts under the carpet in the dinette) and a 1/4" shim placed at the front and rear bolt of the gear rack to adjust it back down into the teeth of the worm gear. Hope this helps, if you need further assistance please call me at the factory at 1-250-493-6675 7 to 4 weekdays and we will endeavor to help you so far from home.
I have had the same problem once in 10 yrs. The way it can happen is hitting a sharp bump or something similar causing one side to jump a tooth or two. With mine it is about a 30 sec. fix.
Run the slide in all the way to determine which side is NOT sealing. Run the slide about 1/2 way out and while under the slideout take a small piece of board and rest it on the bottom of the slide opening under the gear teeth on the side that sealed when the slide was closed. Take a small pinch bar and rest it on the small board with end of bar making contact with the teeth about 1" inside the slide opening. Now slowly push down on the bar. This will raise the slide a small amount thereby disengaging the teeth on the slide and the teeth on the driver. With a little down pressure on the bar you will see that it is easy to "jump" one tooth at a time. I know that this sounds kind of involved but once you are under there you will see how easy it is to do.
I received my permit just to travel. While traveling you are not aware which exits are good to fuel up and which ones are not. We have found ourselves in areas with bars on the windows and rather ruff looking people around and now we have to find our way to turn around to get back on the freeway. We have had panhandlers get aggressive like grabbing my arm or jumping up into the face of my wife. We have had aggressive drivers that think that it is their job to teach us to drive over the speed limit in the slow lane and when driving an RV it is a little hard to get away.
All in all we have never had problems and I have never drawn my weapon but the best weapon you can have is "situational awareness". Stay alert, know what is going on around you. Remember that while on the road you are rubbing elbows with all types of people, many of which you would walk to the other side of the street just to avoid and now they have a 2 ton weapon in their hands and the means to escape fast.
From what I read the work was done at no cost to customers except for the $100 deductable you pay every time they touch it with a wrench. I have always though this was a bunch of crap. The MOST you can hope to get is your deductable back, but don't expect it.
I have raised and trained Belgians in the past. He is a nice young horse, but it takes a big horse to weight a ton. I am guessing that he is under 4 yrs old and he will not grow much taller but he will fill out until he is about 7 yrs old. Once he is filled out he may go a ton but I would guess now that he is probably around 15-16 hundred. Ask your Amishman friend, he will know within about 20lbs. These guys are good. He will look much different after he is trained, his chest will fill out and his neck will grow an arch and when you touch him he will be as hard as a rock. All muscle.
Check in from time to time as he is being trained as some Amish will gain compliance by withholding feed or water while working. A thirsty or hungry animal does not have the desire to rebel as one that is well fed. You can expect Rudy to lose a couple of hundred pounds as his fat will disappear but he will regain it again when not working.
BTW, trim his feet or they will start to crack.
and so goes the American Economy - few gals. diesel here and there - Wal*mart moves in - Oh we will park on their lot instead of a campground. Why pay high prices - if we want stuff we will buy at Wal*Mart and camp there!
Next no jobs in small town USA - gee I wonder what happened?
Good luck on saving a few bucks on a $60,000 vehicle. (Yep - LONG TIME family camper - over 60 years - NEVER camped at Wal*Mart - used bio diesel, but only from commercial pumps).
yep - - flame suit on.
Isn't this something, promoting buying fuel from the sandbox where people hate us and want to distroy us in stead of biofuels produced and grown in these small towns and rural America. In the last 5 yrs I have saved enough on fuel to buy one of these $60k vehicles. Yeah, it's saving a "few bucks".
(How did Walmart get into this thread anyway?)
There is so much misinformation on here that I really do not even want to reply. But here goes, I have run well over 10k gals of veggie oil and bio-diesel. As was said, make good fuel, get good results. Oh, and a little more misinformation to correct is you can manufacture 400 gals per quarter of homemade fuel without breaking the law. Check out forums that are made up of people that know not people that think they know, but have never tried it.
