I'm here to eat crow. Grin

Many here have read my posts about the slide on our 2010 2551S and the fact that it leaves gouges in the vinyl in front of the fridge and a deep discolored indentation in the carpet in front of the couch.  And then there were the wood bits coming out from under the fridge when we opened the slide.  And then there were the scratch marks on the wall next to the fridge that were visible when we opened the slide.  Ok, after talking to Kermit we took the motor home to a highly rated independent shop in Albuquerque and they went over the thing and pronounced it one of the quote best slides unquote they had ever seen and they have seen a lot of slides. The wood bits under the fridge were from a contractor type pencil under there being chewed up every time we opened the slide.  The scratches on the wall are because that very thin piece of material bows.  The indentations are the cost of doing business with the slide roller.  There will be some minor mods I will now make that I learned from Bob Andersen and then no more on the the slide!

Paula, it is great to know that our slides are one of the best. Thank you for following up on your problems and the repairs. We all eat crow every now and then.

I too am glad to read your slide issues were really nothing at all.

It's a good story to share with others who are interested in buying a PC.

Paula,

Glad to hear that there are no serious issues with your slide and that it appears to be a good design.  When I saw your slide in Santa Fe, I was most concerned about the wood chips, glad it was simply a pencil in the wrong place.  I assume that you will deal with the other two issues as we discussed and then you can concentrate on more fun and no more slide stuff.

Hope we see you in Quartzite,
Bob Anderson

Paula:

Glad it only minor.  We had the same problem with a pencil.  One of the boys was doing his homework and lost his pencil.  Later when we opened the slide, we found it in the same condition you did.  The smashed eraser gave it away..
