Had no choice due to time constraints (getting ready to leave on a trip)I couldn't return it. Here was the problem. The motor housing is supposed to have a threaded mounting hole that fastens the motor to the actuator. There were no threads in the hole. It was nice and clean and smooth.
1. Decided to switch old motor housing for new. Problem...
2. Old motor housing did not fit 'identical motor' replacement. Solved this by...
3. Removed old motor mounting plate and installed on new motor. Problem solved except...
4. Tried testing slide and found that wires on new motor were reversed, i.e. old motor had black wire going to black wire and red wire to red wire. New motor needed to have red wire going to black and black going to red.
Quite frankly for $ 480.- I expect a quality product, after all it's just a motor and a couple of gears. It can't be more than $ 50.- wholesale. Then again it's Lippert. Enough said.
