X3^ I have never had any issues so far with any of my slides. I ordered my 2014 SF32RL back in March and when it finally got built and delivered in June it was a 2015. Don't know why they dropped the nose slide. It definently gets a lot of attention.

We just picked up the 33RL, after selling our 26RB. We really wanted the 32RL with the front slide (like our 26RB had). The dealer said Crossroads stopped making the front slide for two reasons. One being slide issues and the other being it was too different for the market and they did not sell as well as the others. I think the main reason is they wanted to get away from the schwintech slides.
We have a SF32RL and when we pulled it out of winter storage this spring the right motor on the front slide had failed. It was a week out of warranty but I called Schwintek and they honored the warranty so the dealer fixed it. It's nice that it's still usable with the slide in as we did end up camping one trip without being able to extend it out. It certainly a conversation starter as it's unique.
So Crossroads is no longer using the Schwintech slide system on their 2015 models?
That is what I was told at the dealership and it has been quoted in this forum that some have heard it directly from Crossroads. On the 2015 we picked up today, it has the BAL cable system on all three slides. It also appears from the update on the Crossroads website, the front slide is a thing of the past.
