Slide Out System Components                               

 

 
 

   


Main Room Slide Out Systems

  
(Typical electric rack and gear systems shown)

Ask about our Rack and pinion System using new two heavy steel rails. We use a unique system designed 18 years ago just for the MCI chassis. If one rail moves 1/4" the other rail has to move 1/4"' .. These two rails are synchronized with a axle that can not let one side go out without the other .. It can not tweak .. designed 18 years ago just for the MCI type of chassis. 

 
Features
  • Electric system motors feature integral locks to positively lock the room in place every time, eliminating room drift and seal relaxation
  • Rack and gear synchronization system maintains room square ness to within 1/8" from side-to-side during room travel
  • Drive gears and slide-rail support rollers are concentric ensuring proper alignment and mesh between racks and gears
  • Shafts/gears are oil impregnated to eliminate oxidation and to ensure smooth, quiet operation
  • Mechanical adjustability provides tight room sealing

Flush Floor Systems                                                      Back to Menu

 

 

Features

Flush floor slide out systems have become very popular. Power Gear has developed a variety of ways to accomplish this design criteria and offers:

Systems:

  • Easy to install systems which eliminate complicated mechanisms and the slide room step
  • Complete floor ramp/slideout system designs

Flush Floor Ramps:

  • Ramp design combines room lift, weather seal and room bearing surface into a drop-in product
  • All moving components bear on high-density nylon surfaces for low-friction operation and smooth, quiet room travel
  • Special corner pieces provide air, light, and watertight sealing

Features

Power Gear slideout control options:

  • Rocker switch/breaker relay style control
  • Control senses current draw spikes during operation, shutting off automatically as room seals
  • Rocker switch/quick-off control
  • Control is preset at a specified current draw. It turns off the system in one-half second after the room seals minimizing stress on motors, gears, shear pins, and room seals

In the last 10 years, The RV industry has had  a trend towards making more and more
space in your coach when parked.
 


 Instead of making Coaches  longer, they are adapting them  to be wider. This trend has trickled over to the bus conversion industry.
Whenever considering adding slide-outs to your Bus chassis, especially with an MCI monocoque chassis, you want to be sure you have an expert to install this for you.

The average expense is approximately $1000-$1500. per foot. Depending on what model, you can have as many as four units installed, almost doubling the size of your coach when parked.
Ask about Rack and pinion Systems using two heavy steel rails. We use a unique worm gear system designed 18 years ago just for the MCI chassis. If one rail moves 1/4" the other rail has to move 1/4"' .. These two rails are synchronized with a axle that can not let one side go out without the other .. It can not tweak .. designed 18 years ago just for the MCI chassis. 

 

Because MCI Buses are a true  monocoque construction, you need to be very careful how you install a large room addition slide out. The mere fact that you are installing a very large opening in the side of the coach can very well destroy it. The slide out must be engineered in such a way that you add strength to your coach, not remove it. 
 

We have been installing commercial grade slide outs for the trade show and exhibition industry since the 1970s. We started with other coaches and blended over to MCI's because of the popularity of this coach.

Usually when you have a slide out, that slides in and out of the side of the coach, you need a glide system similar to that of drawer glides or a large filing cabinet glide. This glide system needs to be mounted in the  floor. In order to mount this type of system, the structural engineering for that coach has to be disrupted. 
 

Our approach is not to disrupt the floor area. We simply re-strengthen the opening in some of the floor area, but we transfer our load in our glide system in the very strong floor & ceiling. This method can also be hidden very easily. This design, in combination with a rack and pinion  system  we designed in the 1970s and have perfected since, has proven itself to be one of the best designs, if not the best. 

These are images of one of the new 2005 prototype slide outs. This is a late model MCI 102-A3 to which we are adding a 13 foot x 30 inch slide out. Watch for more images as work progresses.
