2016 Winnebago Forza 34T Slide out and power awning issues...
« on: February 06, 2018, 05:36:08 PM »
Hi folks,

First time posting in this forum. Hopefully I can get some feedback.

As I said, I have a 2016 Forza 34T.  The driver side slideout is really slow and doesn’t slide out or retract evenly. The rear section appears to move a little “quicker” and the slide seems gets stuck. I had to stop and start again until it retracted all the way. Same with extending it so it goes both ways.  It just started doing this.  Of course the motor(s) seem to struggle as if something is holding it up.

Also, the awnings also started making a horrendous clicking type sound when they’re extended and retracted.  Both slide issue and awning issue ironically started on our last trip. Not sure if it’s related since they’re on opposite sides of the coach, but weird none the less. 

Sadly my local dealer isn’t taking any appointments right now because they’re too busy so I’m hoping to get some insight from those smarter then me. 

Thanks.

Who makes your slideout mechanism? Lippert? Powergear? HWH?  When you say awnings, are you referring to the slideout toppers? Large patio awning? Door awning?

And, welcome!
