Replacement motor for RV Slide out rooms.014-136373 - 28:1 Venture Actuator Motor for Slide Out
Posted by Ron Capps on 28th Aug 2013
I have a 32' travel trailer with a single 20' slideout that I purchased new in 2009. The Lippert-Venture 18:1 ratio electric actuator that came with the trailer always struggled to close my slideout and it became worse over time. I cleaned and lubricated the mechanism as recommended and replaced my 12v batteries but it didn't help much.
After some research I discovered that Venture produced a 28:1 ratio exact replacement unit that I felt wouldn't have to work so hard. I shopped around and found MakariosRV.com had the best price so I ordered one on 8/12/2013. It shipped out the following day and I received it 3 days later...great service.
The new unit took no more than 15 minutes to install. Wow, what a difference it made. My slideout moves a bit slower now due the 28:1 ratio but the motor hardly strains at all. I'd recommend this modification to anyone who has difficulty closing a large, heavy, electrically operated slideout that's powered by the Lippert-Venture 18:1 unit after trying everything else.
I also highly recommend MakariosRV.com due to their great prices and excellent service. In the future I'll be checking with them first when I need RV parts.
