We have a 2014 Cruiser Patriot 305SK that we picked up in late August 2013. From day 1 the kitchen slide has dropped really hard when opening and jumps up hard when closing, shaking the whole trailer.
We have had it to Camping World 4 times and they told us because of the weight of the slide that is the way it works. Crossroads had us bring it to another RV repair facility and we got the same response.
I am concerned that this is going to cause some issues in the future, so I'm wondering if anyone else with a kitchen slide has had this issue, and if they have been able to correct it.

I have a large slide on my 335SS that includes the fireplace, desk, oven, stove top, microwave, and refrigerator. It does not drop or grind when extending or retracting. Seems like you have some type of issue with your mechanism. Call Crossroads and complain. It should not work like that.

I have a 2013 305SKP and my slide does not do what you are saying yours does. Your unit still have the old style slides or Schwintex??? If it still has the old style it should just need to be adjusted. IMHO
