 In the spring of 2001 we purchased a keystone 25' columbia travel trailer. on our first outing we could not get the slide out to retract. a friend helped me push on the unit while my wife operated the control switch inside the trailer. we took the trailer to the dealer three times in two months do deal with slide adjustment. on the third try of adjustment it did not work quite satisfactorily but we thought that was all that could be done. well over the years of towing the trailer the slide has moved out of adjustment and subsequently we recently took the trailer to an rv repair shop. the owner showed me that the frame is buckled and cracked where the front slide comes through the frame. the center spring shackle is welding directly beneath the frame slide too. i now can see why the frame has failed in this location. with the slide coming through the frame all of the integrity of the frame has been comprised. there is no structural support reinforcing this particular area. the repairman suggested that we park the trailer and not tow it due to the danger of a complete frame failure. i have sent an e-mail to keystone and hope to get a response. this trailer has not been neglected and has been towed very little in its life. we have made one trip to the oregon coast and the rest of the time the trailer is towed to our property in winthrop, wa. and sits all summer till we bring it back to our home in anacortes. *tr
