Voltage 2016 and 2017 Design Flaw on Slide outs

If you own, or are considering the purchase of a 2016 or 2017 Voltage model 3970, please be aware of this design flaw in the slide outs. It may also apply to other models of RV's that have switched over from an older system to the newer cable push pull system. You might want to check out the slides on models you might be considering. I have a 2016 Voltage model 3970 that has this problem. The bedroom slide out has leaked during rain events since day one of our purchase. We have had it in for repair at the dealership on four separate occasions over 2016 and 2017. As of this posting, it still leaks. I've come to the conclusion that it can not be repaired. In addition, the fact that the slide outs do not extend out fully,means you are losing inside cabin space for the length of all three slide outs. This adds up when all space inside your RV is at a premium for your use and comfort. I have attached photos of all three of my slides. They are: Door side, off door side and bedroom side.
