Jeepinjohn,
The post you responded to was made in 2013. You'll be lucky if the OP responds. You might try to private message him for answers.

If memory serves, if you can get to the pin that holds the worm gear shaft to the gearbox shaft, and to the two pins that connect the nut to the slide, the job is fairly easy.

The shaft and broken nut can then be pulled out after the plate on the end of the tube is removed. I had to support the slide to do that.

Email me if you'd like the couple photos and pdf files that may be of help.

Is there a to update this slide to make it more reliable? I am very reluctant to use the slide because I'm afraid I won't be able to retract it.

The problem was the slide out would no longer retract(one side)The broken part is called a "acme nut". The part was no where to be found so I had to make one , If your having the same problem and have the same type of slide maybe this info might help you. I have a 2002 Minnee 31",slide type Kwikkee Dyno Sycn worm drive. Here's how you know it's the acme nut, first room starts going out crooked, and retracting room is getting worse,finaly quit retracting (one side) at all.Second clue is you get out the hand cranks and manualy cranking is not moving room in. The factory uses a plastic acme nut threaded onto a long worm screw to move room in and out,the platic nut breaks loose and spins in its location and your room is broken. I was not able to find parts for this problem, I called and looked everywhere , no parts! So I replaced the plastic nut with a bronze acme nut from Nook Ind. and a steel sleeve, yes it took some time and frabrication but my slide out is back up and working great,If you need info on parts/install,be glad to pass along.

I just ordered 2 ACME nuts and 4 pins from Lichtsinn RV. Never can tell when I might need them. I was afraid they were going to be unavailable.
