ScottG What is a shear bolt, where is it and how do I get to it?

Dave

Do you have a Power Gear slide-out manual? If no download it and it will show you where the shear bolts are.
With the slide closed you will have to lay down on the floor of the camper and look up under the faceboard of the slide and look for the drive shaft. The bolt could be sheared or the shear bolt could have just loosened and dropped out.
One of my shear bolts dropped out and the other ones were loose. I reinstalled them with blue loctite and torqued to 14 foot pounds.
I removed the face board on my slide, then reinstalled it with fasteners hidden behind decorative caps, so it would be very easy to access the slide mechanism in the future, if need be.

Contacted Northwood Mfg and they suggested loosening 2 nuts on the front rail under the slide and putting in shims between the rail and the floor of the slide, 1/8" at a time to 1/2". Will try it soon I hope... right now it is freezing and windy in NY

Start with the shear bolts first, then make sure the timing of the slide is right on. Then there are other adjustments described in the page I referred you to.

I am thinking about buying a pre owned Artic Fox 1150. Are they still having these problems with there slides? Did they change to a better slide at any time ? If so when?
Thanks

To JimPH I do not know the frequency of the slide problem with all manufacturies but everyone seems to have a story. We really used our TC in all sorts of terrain so although I do not like having this problem now I am not that critical....just me!

Finally got to the slide problem because it has warmed up here in NY. That is the good news the bad news is that I put 4 1/8" shims (total 1/2 inch) shims between the front rail and the floor of the slide and nothing has changed it is still out about 2 inched........ugh
The front rail cannot be workrd on unless I pull the dinette floor off.....what a pain...will let you know
