Slide Gear box.

Had my Zinger 31SB in for its one year inspection and check up. I was getting some squealing noise from the slide. I sprayed everything down (with a dry slide spray) that I could see and it still did not go away. They had a hard time with it at the dealer and finally came up with all 4 gear boxes went bad??? Is this Normal?? they are waiting for Crossroads to send them to be replaced. Nice thing they are on warranty. It has been in the shop for almost 2 weeks now hope they get it done soon.

Let me guess the gear boxes are made by Lippert...Did that sound cynical... Let me put it like this...Who is the manufacturer of the gear boxes...

I am not sure but I looked them up and that sounds right. Looks like they range about 50 bucks each

Did it make noise only the first 12-18 inches when sliding in and then quit? but did it every time?

Mine does the exact thing. You said your dealer said it was the gearboxes for the slide out?

According to my dealer they are still waiting for the parts. Crossroads put lots of these defective gears into lots of campers and now they are replacing some. The new gear is made out of better material. so hopefully I get mine soon. I would say if yours is noisy get a hold of your dealer and let them know you might get free upgrades.

Just wondering, who manufactures the gearboxes?? They're the culprit, not Crossroads.

Yes and no. CrossRoads at this point knew they had bad gears out there and no recall or even a letter. It still is a Crossroads product they are putting them on.
