2005 Itasca 40 KD: Rear Slide Issue

Recommended Posts

While bringing in the bedroom slide we noticed the foot of the bed started kicking up as far as two feet. We can hold it down while bringing it in.

What we found was two bolts broken off on the center guide. Can't figure out how this happened and how to prevent it from happening again.

Nothing appears to be bent or broken except two 3/8 inch bolts inside this metal track holding the bed flat while moving.

Why not replace bolts and see if issue is resolved.  Could be the bolts were deffective?

If not, contact Winnebago @winnebagoind.com for help.

When you buy replacement bolts get at least "grade 6" Some of the ones used by the factory, Well lets  just say they aren't the best.;)

Thanks you guys. I did just try it out with two new bolts and it sounds like it wants to bind up so looks like I need Winnebago.
