So is the Schwintek In-Wall Slide-Out good quality? Based on a few responses it sounds like a poor choice for an RV that comes with the Schwintek.


My opinion, it's not a quality issue. It's a system that's not appropriate for an RV, particularly for large slides. The tolerances are so precise, and when you have a moving vehicle, especially one that flexes and bends because it's "lightweight", the system can easily become out of tolerance. No slide out system is without its issues, but at least with the others, there's a realistic way to retract the slide if needed.

I've noticed some manufacturers have gone back to the old reliable cable and pulley system on their brand new TT's that we have on our 2012 unit.

My same unit (new model year) has now changed from Schwintek to rack & pinion.
