Thor ace slide squeaks when driving

My 2022 Thor ace 32.3 slide squeaks loud right behind my head when I drive. It is very annoying. Iíve lubricated the tracks and everything I see. It sounds like itís coming from inside the slide. Anyone else with this problem?

It could be something simple like a piece of trim rubbing.

However, you also have a heavy full-wall slide. Many of us with full wall slides have had issues with the Schwintek mechanism as well as the floor rollers.

Does the slide open and close smoothly and quietly? Does it sound like the motors are struggling? Does one end seem to move slower than the other end?

I have a clunking- knocking sound coming from the slide out right behind my head on a 2018 Axis 25.5. Only noticeable going slow as the rig rocks and rolls little. I think it has to do with slide out system motor and shafts moving around or binding a little. I tried cleaning and lubing slide seals and test driving slowly with the slide out 4 “ but has not helped. Not a common problem. Search for “wall rattle”.

Youíve got an entry level class A. Youíll experience creaks. Screen door rattles. Cabinet door rattles. Youíve got a 20+ foot box in a box bouncing down the road. Youíll hear noises. A squeak or 2 is minor.

If there are cabinets in the slide see if they have a false bottom. On our Challenger the slide knocking was caused by a screwdriver left in the cabinet false bottom rolling around hitting the cabinet sides. I removed the screwdriver left by Thor and the knocking went away.

Loud popping sound from slide when retracting . Same side that squeaks when driving. Iíve lubricated the tract and looked for anything visual but canít find anything

I have this exact problem on my recently purchased 2016 ACE 29.3. Mostly at low speeds, but not when extending or retracting. Very annoying.
