Slide motor replacement

Lippert has a great video on YouTube on the replacement of the schwintek motors.

I then looked on Lipperts site and the motors are about $110. -$250 depending which you need.

Thanks for the post. I watched the video and then got the opportunity to view others as well. After clicking through a couple there was one on resynchronizing the slide wall system. This is one I found interesting because it explains why they get out of sync and how to correct the problem.

Now I know the real reason for holding the button for 3 to 5 seconds after full retraction or extension. It is so the controller can set the zero point for both motors.

Thanks for posting the video.

I wish I had seen it before I had dis-assembled the bed lift. Hopefully, the motor on the bed lift is as easy to remove once you have access to it.
