Hi All,

I have not been here for a long time. Life has been really busy!

Anyway, here is the issue.

2004 Jazz by Thor bunk house model (2780BH FW JAZZ) with single slide (12' I believe). We have owned this unit since new. No real problems to speak of (aside from tire blow outs and repairs...sigh).

Anyway, went on an Elk hunting trip and could not get the slide out to come in. It would start in then 'clunk, clunk, clunk' - I believe it is the clutch for the slide. I ended up crawling underneath and cranking it in about 1', then it would slide in though I did get back underneath to crank tight before leaving.

Who is the manufacturer for this slide? Anyone know? I just need to download the correct service information to try and adjust the clutch.

Located in Oregon and the local dealers are waaaaaaay out for scheduling service between COVID and the mass buying of RV's and the fires here that have put lots of people into RV's.

Thank you in advance for your help!

The clutch mechanism is probably not serviceable. I had a Jazz and I think it was made by Thor. Nice little trailer. The drive gears are probably standard on a lot of makes,pull the motor and clutch and see if there is a mfg name on the unit. Google is your friend on this search.

Just came across your post and wondered if you ever figured out who made the slide out. We have a 2009 2550RL and this week the slide broke and am having real problems trying to find the manufacturer for parts.
