Micro Minnie Slide Out Issue

Today I noticed that when my slide out is completely retracted I have about a 1/8" gap on the lower rear corner. The pic shows this. The silicone seal is even lifted away from the mating surface along with the black graphic decal. So I know that this is not supposed to be happening.

When I extend the slide out the gap disappears. It only appears when the slide out is fully closed. If it's extended even 1" the gap is gone.

The other lower corner is fine.

I'm guessing this is a warranty issue as I have not even had the TT for 3 months and it's still winterized from the dealership? I haven't camped in it once yet.

I guess nobody knows anything about this? This has never happened to anyone?

Well, I don't have time to get it into some place to get it looked at. I am moving the TT 1400 miles west to Idaho this weekend. So I used some silicone to fill the gap for now as I don't want water seeping inside.

It looks like the screw lost it's hold and I could probably fix it by just adding a new screw or 2. But this TT is 2 months old. I'm going to let Winnebago handle it.

To be fair, you didn't really allow much time for a response nor did you ask for any input. Glad you figured it out. Safe travels.

Poor Construction

Hi I had issues with slide out.The more miles on TT the worst it gets. Mine was on front lower corner noticed slide moving in and out while driving, screws are backing out? Fix with oversize screws and add more self tap screws like original. Drive another year and notice it happening again! Last fix is new bolts and washers and locking bolt to aluminum frame in wall. The roads will beat a TT to death.

DaveW, the problems with the slide out are well known and this has been a very active issue on Winnebago Micro Minnie Owners website. When you get a chance you should take it to a dealer for repair.

Thanks for the replies. I will be taking it to a dealer in Idaho for this issue as well as to have them sign off on the recall issue.

But I feel better now knowing that this is a common issue. If it happens again after the dealer fixes it then I will nip the issue in the bud and bolt it to the frame like Matt did. I don't like having to fix the same issue multiple times.

Hey Dave, did you get your slide problem taken care of? I have the same problem on my 2022 micro minnie, the front bottom corner does not slide all the way back in. There is a 1.5 inch gap when the slide is completely closed on the front bottom corner of slide. Just wondering if you had to take it in to repair or is there a DIY way of correcting?
Thanks,

For OP and all MM owners:
The maker of MM slides is Schwintek. They have some helpful videos on maintaining this slide system. Aside from screws missing, I might presume that the motors are not totally synched. Have you tried re-synching the motors a few times? To do this fully extend the slide and continue to hold down the extend switch for at least 3 seconds after the slide is fully extended. Then fully retract the slide, and again continue depressing the retract switch for 3 seconds. This procedure puts the slide mechanism back into alignment. If you haven’t done so, I found it helpful to watch this video:

Very informative, thanks!

I sub to this channel, and he replaced his Schwintek with a Vroom system. Not cheap, ($2800 w/ installation) but it seems to be very robust and offers piece of mind.
