Slideout rattle

Our sunseeker 2650s has 1 slideout and it does rattle when driving slow and/or bumps. I have tried from silicone lube, putting foam under and in the dinette and I even bought a small slide lock to go front-back and it still does it. Cant trace it, cant replicate it. Its coming from driver side back seat. I dont want to buy another slidelock to go side-to-side without knowing if that would stop it.
Im stumped. Any ideas?

Not sure what you mean by putting foam under and in the dinette. We had a rattling sound coming from the dinette area which was completely solved by lowering the dinette table. No foam, etc. just putting it in sleeping position.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Sorry, what I meant was i put foam under the slides C metal thingy and foam in the dinette seats and anywhere I thought the sounds coming from but no luck.

Can a schwintek slide motor became loose and makes a rattle sound?

I would think if a slide motor was loose enough to rattle the slide wouldn't work. Is this a u shaped dinet or a two seater? I would look at the table as the previous post suggested.

Yeah the slide operates/sync properly. Its a 2 seater (or 4?) dinette.
It is not the table, i fixed the table and that one squeaks when loose.

Had a chance to take a look at this yesterday while DW driving it. Is it normal for a slide to move while driving? I noticed the bottom part will push out maybe 1/8 and if I press the slide in it will move back (of course can only do this while parked). I also noticed the sound is coming from the roller underneath the slide, looks like the rear roller has more weight to it than the front ones.
Thoughts?

This eliminates most of the noise but on low speed the clunk is still there

You need to lube the slide. There is a certain type of spray you use. YouTube has a video on it. I have to do it to my dads Thor MH every now and then. His sounds like something is loose in the wall while you are driving. After you lube it, it doesn't make any noise.
