213RBSL slide out track or cable?

I'm almost certain the 2016 model does not have any visible track on the single small (72") dining slide out.

In fact, I distinctly remember seeing 4 cables and thinking they weren't very robust. I also can't see in my mind how it works.

So I googled a bit and found 2 different hardware configs on pictures of 213's

Here are examples: (cables are hard to see clearly)







I'm 99% sure the 2016 is like the second pic.
Having said that, I'm sort of relieved it doesn't resemble the infamous Schwintech thread(s).

But it would be cool if someone knew a little bit about this alternative system and if they could point me at some source of info\documentation about what it is and how you maintain it properly.

Thanks in advance if you do.

I guess it's good news that I can't easily find any complaints on the 213 slideout.

When the slide out is in you can go to the side of the slide out and peek into it over the top. You will also see the motor that you have the adapter tool for and all of the cables. Figuring out how to reach it is more challenging. I am only about one minute behind you figuring that out.

Thanks Mauger

I did find a YouTube video showing how cable mechanism works. Makes sense.
Still don't know if I should be happier that I don't have that scary Schwintech design.
