Another LCI Motor Failue!

Bed slide motor blew for 2nd time in 4 years.
King bed slide has minimal weight to move! Funny!

Main living room side on 3rd motor!

Gotta love the warranty!

Looks like a reducer failure. There is only 2 screws on the cap end of the reducer, were they sheared?
If so, then the motor can move the load in and out but the static loads when at the end of travel must be high to cause that.
BTW... Vroom uses a four screw end cap to counter just that problem.
