Thanks for the link!  It provides a good amount of detail.  "Darren" in the video points out that Schwintek does not recommend lubrication (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7dyXFg9GbU).  Schwintek apparently did recommend lubrication back in 2015 for particular situations to "reduce noise while in transit" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0my90W3AKM), but has since removed the link from their website.

About the only thing to do is lubrication.  Here's a decent video that explains that as well as the synchronization issue.

I have a 2014 14DBS.  The slide out work fine, but I haven't done anything to maintain it.  Should I be spraying the tracks with a lubricant?  Should I be spraying the seals with a conditioner?  Any other words of wisdom? 

I've removed the paneling between the slide out and the bathroom, and am making a bookcase to store DVDs and the like.  I've been activating the slide out mechanism a lot while working on the bookcase.

Oh, and is "slide out" one word or two? I've heard the term "popout" used, and I wasn't sure which word to search on.

Funny you should ask. I've had a set of these sitting in my camper parts box for 10 years because I couldn't figure out how to install them on a 16TBS.  ::)

Livin Lite General Discussion / Gutter Spout Extensions
Last post by dlb53151 - July 07, 2024, 05:40:18 PM
I am looking to install the gutter spout extensions on my 16TBS trailer.  However, there isn't a typical drip rail on the unit.  There is of course the dowel opening for securing the awnings but that is it.  So, the question is, where to install those extensions.  The front passenger side was a no-brainer so I installed that one but what about the other 3?  I attached pics for reference.  Thanks!

Has anyone also installed (properly) these extended spouts?  Am considering doing this.

As for tow mirrors for the new truck, purchased used didn't get to spec it with powered, 360 camera tow mirrors, I decided to try this product.  The price to purchase tow mirrors from Ford with 360 camera and lane assist was too expensive.  They work great and give great sight lines where I can see the truck's rear tires and the trailer tires too.

I ended up ordering the Tern Overland window ($600 with shipping). I'll report back on my thoughts once it's installed!
