No, we're still in the RGV at Llano RV park where we spent the winter. Was planning on leaving April 6th but may need to change our plans if we don't get the slide fixed this week.

Good luck on this--fix is simple if parts available. If tech can't get them, call LCI--they should have your VIN on file from DRV.

Plan on calling them first thing in the morning. Can't take a chance on tech having the right parts. If I end up with a few extra parts there's room in the RV to store them.

Those gears are strange gadgets--very loose feel to them til you get them mounted. And don't know why anyone would say they aren't available, these are the same gears been in use since Doubletree was making them. People, including myself, have bad-mouthed LCI at times, but if you know what you need, they handle it very well. Good luck with them, and the mobile tech.
And my previous problem wasn't the teeth, it was the bronze bushings that wore completely out on both ends. If you look closely at the pic of the side x side gears, you can see the gap in the old gear where the shaft is supported by the bushings.

I found 2 Spur Gears in San Antonio ( Texas RV Supply) today for a fellow that had wanted to start to Canada today. His 18 tooth gear had a Octagon center hole. His DRV was manufactured Jan 2009.

Is the octagon center the current use or is it the round hole with key-way? I could the round hole being cheaper to built but harder to install correctly or time.

OCB, I have a 2017 MS. The gear that sheared a few teeth on my slide mechanism has 15 teeth an has a hexagon hole for the shaft. We're fixed up now and back on the road.

I contacted Lippert, the lady I spoke with new right away what gear I needed. Aired it out and got it in two days.

If you call Lippert they will know what your friend needs for his unit.
