My big slide has been deployed for over two years through Oklahoma wind and rain storms, snow, trees shedding leaves and things, sun and neglect.
After a few prayers to the RV and Schwintec gods and crossed fingers I was ready to push the button, you know the one, RETRACT, or otherwise know as the pucker button.
A few pops and creaks (I thought it was me at first), she started on her homeward bound journey into the guts of the living room. Slow but steady and the trip was finally over. Went outside and looked it over to ensure she was all sealed up. Seals smooshed against the body all plumb and square. A few more minutes of minor pops and creaks and she finally settled in.
Happy camper peeps, until it's time to hit the button again
