The plan to deal with the broken slide-out appears to be working so far. We got up on Thursday morning and inspected the malfunctioning RV slide cables. Sure enough, the top forward “in” cable was frayed. So I disassembled the pulley that was bound up, freeing the cable causing the problem, and then we were able to get the slide in, and get back on the road.
The ride from Springfield, MO through Oklahoma was beautiful in the morning, turning to lots of rain in the afternoon. God was looking out for us though, and the ran stopped each time we needed to stop. There was quite a bit of construction and traffic going through Tulsa and OK City, which made for a pretty long day.
