Hi All,

I have a 2012 Passport 3220 BHWE. I wax it twice a year, has no delamination, and still shines. Really has been a good trailer no big issues.

Recently the large slide has started to chatter on retrieval. I can find any obvious issue. A few years back I had to have the cable fixed but that is really it.

Is any one lubing the sides or the rollers? It only has two roller.

If you do lube, what are you lubing and what are you using?

I am interested to find out what's said here. Mine does not "chatter" but it does sound sticky as it extends and retracts.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

I use this on the rack and pinion

And this on the seals.

Ours actually stalled on one trip while bringing the slide in. It just needed some lube.
