That must be what is in my slide wall. I wish he would go for another beer and stay out of my slide.

We had a loud thumping noise happen when going down the highway. It came on all of a sudden and I thought my antenna came lose or something. What I found was the front fender trim came loose from the coach and was flapping in the wind. I could have sworn the sound was coming from above... but it wasn't.

I'd just check some different things - it could be something flapping under the coach but resonating from above.

I own a Fleetwood and considering a Thor Outlaw. While driving my fleetwood initially i was having noises over the cab area. I started taking things apart and found things not properly secured and lots of left over scrap goodies from the manufacturer. Plastic band strap and remove the scraps and the noise was gone.

It does help greatly

I watched the video, bought the correct stuff and did the slide lube job last month. Had a couple trips since and the thumping is gone..for now. So this slide lube is a real thing to do.
Thanks for the post.

To be honest, I lubricated the slides accordingly to all the videos out there, and the noise went away... completely.

My guess is the noise was actually the slide mechanism shifting fore and aft ever so slightly during travel, and the lubrication eased this movement thereby eliminating the noise.

Its been well over a year, and the noise has not returned.

Possible source of noise?

I'm reviving this post that I posted to and followed for awhile to add a bit of newly discovered information...at least to me.

Several folks posted here that their banging noises might be caused by the slide mechanisms or the protective awning that covers the top of the slide.

I think you're all on to something here. We spent a few nights at a very remote RV park in NM where the winds were simply awful. We thought stuff was going to be ripped off of our coach during the night. With a couple particularly bad gusts we heard the same banging noise we would hear occasionally while on the road.

Hubby went out in the nastiness to see what he could see and determined that the wind was buffeting the protective awning that covers the slide. There seems to be a fair amount of play in there, causing the bumping, banging sound.

We're in the process of searching for a possible "padding" option for when we are stationary and if the winds pick up...not sure what can be done while on the move.

We have a 2016 Hurricane 27K.
