Anybody have any suggestions or advices I would appreciate.
If you have access to the Internet, Google the problem..I believe the slide is a Schwintek.
Now here is what I know...2 summers ago, we were in Gunnison Colorado...we were walking the RV park and noticed the fellow, older than I was struggling with his slide..I went back to our Axis and googled the problem...their answer was....always make sure there is nothing in the path of your slide, inside and out....
YOU can view the rails from the underside, when the slide is extended.
You might need a flashlight.
When extending your slide and retracting...hold it an extra 5 seconds after it has stopped moving. If you have difficulties..bring it back in and extend again, returning it once again.
The noise you heard could be a much worse problem than the slide being out o sync.
Do you regularly lubricate your slide rails. If not, it is definitely something you should do. I use CRC Heavy Duty Silicone spray on the slide rails.
