Slide out Adjustment bolts broken

Has anyone had this happen ? We just got home from Tenn. and backing in the driveway I noticed the compartments where not in line with the camper. Pushing on them it moved. Opened slide and found 2 bolts that are inboard both snapped off. I called Winnie, who put me in touch with another outfit and ordered new ones but was shocked they were broken. I am guessing maybe one broke in the past and maybe the PA roads finally broke bolt 2 ?

Can you post some pics and a better location idea of the broken bolts? Something to keep an eye on.

I will try. This is the part number Winnebago gave me.

132540-01-706 EA BOLT - SLIDE ROOM ADJUSTER RAP90865/P19611

They hang in the "aluminum" tubes that slide out and go into a bracket behind the compartments that is steel. The nut and both is still in the steel angle iron and is snapped just above the nut. The special bolt appears to have a notch on it to adjust.

ok i cant get the pictures to show up. If you click and open them they show. Looking at the bolts it appears one is pretty rusted and has probably been broken for years as i thought. The front one is fresh shiny silver so it just broke.

The slide as made by HWH. I called but the girl said they dont stock the part. Week out then shipping. Hopefully they are in by the time we need to leave for NC...

The images don't show up in the thread and didn't open when I double-clicked them. They did open if I right-clicked on them and selected 'open in new window'.

Based on one of the images, would it possibly be due to rust? -RT

Check the other bolts for head markings. Here is a chart of head marking:

https://www.boltdepot.com/fastener-i...ade-chart.aspx

If they were common bolts I'd put in grade 5 or 8 instead. Choice would be made based on what was available and maybe price. YMMV.

Getting the old bolts out I would drill with a small (~1/8 inch) pilot hole then use a left handed drill bit from a Harbor Freight set. Chances are good the bit will bind and unscrew the bolt. If that does not work you will have opened up the hole for an extractor.

The bolts appear to be specific or I would just go to some big box store and get some. If the ones from HWH are not in by next weekend I will have to try plan B. Looking at the bolts they have a ridge so you can adjust. I'll crawl under and pull the old nut off and the bolt that broke should unscrew. I guess i would suggest those with similar years check these..

Well the bolts HWH sent are not even close to what is on the unit now. I am guessing the part number is not correct. Now onto plan B I guess. I'll pull one today and go to TSC and see if i can find something to work. I think a standard grade 8 bolt will work if i can devise a way to tighted/adjust it as you cannot access the head ones installed. Plan C is to get the mig welder out and just weld it back together for now.

So i removed the bolt and its nothing even close to what HWH sent. I think a decent carage bolt will work so I'll try.
