2013 ACE rattle in wall

My 2013 ACE has a rattle in the forward wall of the driver's side slideout. It sounds like something is hanging and swinging inside the wall. Does anyone know how to look inside the wall of the slideout?
Has anyone experienced this problem?

Interesting, I just noticed a similar problem in my 2014 30.1, I thought maybe something in the overhead bin was knocking so I moved things around. Haven't taken it out again so don't know if that was it. Will have to watch this thread to see if anyone has an idea.

Could it be the slide actually bouncing in and out? Make sure you hold the slide button till the motor kicks out or if you have a slide lock, place it in that corner and take it for a drive. What scares the crap out of me with slide locks is if you forgot you put them in but for a test might be worth it. I have noticed sometimes the top of my slide will tip out.

Thanks, I will see if I can locate a slide lock and try it.

I have the same thing on my 2018 Windsport 29m. Sounds like something swinging and knocking inside the slide wall. Looked all over but couldnít see a cause but guessing itís a wire, cable or something swinging and hitting the slide wall given there are lights, outlets etc. in the slide, unless it a slide motor wire. RV going in Monday for warranty work, going to add that to the list, very annoying noise.

Check your slide topper. That was one of the noises I had. It was hitting the side. Also try raising your overhead bed and drop it back onto the safety pins, sometimes mine will make a similar sound and that seems to stop it.
