Now.....What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?


The is a TC forum, who cares what the speed is unladen, I want to know its GVWR and air speed while carrying it's nest on it's back!

Our 2004 Snow River Camper slide has gotten off track. All the earlier posts suggest running the slide half way out, then prying up on the slide to nudge it back on track. I am reluctant to run it half way out as it is obviously damaging gear teeth and I am afraid it will not retract. It is currently retracted. Has anyone tried using a small bottle jack on the bottom of the slide on the interior with the slide completely retracted?

Fixed it! Bolts under the slide had become loos after 13 years of use and they were catching on the frame when moved in and out. Caused the gear to jump track. Tightened the bolts, assisted the slide to move to halfway position, then used the pry bar method to get it realigned. Relief!
