charlyhors Posted January 31, 2016 Report Share Posted January 31, 2016 Hi All, I have a 2005 Hitchhiker Discover America 31.5 LK. The bedroom glide mechanism was making Clunk noises, So I lifted the bed and found that 2 of the 4 bolts that mounted the motor to the frame had worked their way out, and 2 other bolts were part way out and stripped. That resulted in the motor being in at an angle, and the gear sometimes missing the chain (the clunk noise) The motor is still strong, but the bolt holes in the housing are stripped. Is it possible to get a new housing for the motor, or do I need to order a whole new unit? I'm in this location for 5 more weeks, so time is of the essence to get this fixed before a move. I don't think there is enough metal in the housing to allow rethreading to bigger bolts.Thanks so much. I've also posted on the NuWa Owners Group and will be calling NuWa after the weekend.Here are links to the pictures on Dropbox.https://www.dropbox.com/s/cwiedrkeeq321rn/IMG_1470.JPG?dl=0 The motor in place as I found ithttps://www.dropbox.com/s/1enfss1t71tmu4u/IMG_1473.JPG?dl=0 Stripped bolt holes in housinghttps://www.dropbox.com/s/l9ulv2nrowivm4n/IMG_1477.JPG?dl=0 motor model number Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
