Slide motor Lippert 237575

Thoughts on after market slide motors. Lippert replacement for my coach is the 236575. After market are $100 cheaper.

Thoughts.

I kinda doubt it's aftermarket.
It's probably rebranded/not branded.

I doubt there's a profit margin allowing for clones.

Punchline.
I bet they're built on the same line.

Check the warranty and available warranty.

If it is #1, the green LED in the controller will blink once between the red LED's blinking. If it is motor #2 the green LED in the controller will bling twice before the red LED does its thing. Just remember that when the slide is moving, the LEDs will blink rapidly and alternately. This shows the controller is regulating the speed of one motor and keeping the motors synchronized.

Easiest way would be to unplug one motor at the controller, have someone watch and listen at the slide, operate the switch for a second or two and identify the working motor that way.

Donít let the slide move very far and stop as soon as you can tell which is being powered.

Then reconnect at the controller, bring the slide back in, remember to hold the switch for around five seconds so that it can all resync.

Job done.
