If the coach is connected to shore power does it work smoother? I have 2 LR slides that run smoother than the smaller bedroom slide. They are different types. Although the BR slide functions without full battery it does so less smooth and with more noise.

Just checked my bed slide, all is good. Ran it out and back in a couple of times. Will definitely keep an eye on it though. I had a rock get caught under a slide in the bunkhouse of our Sierra (the youngest was making a rock collection), and it tore a pretty nasty looking gash in the vinyl flooring. Clued it down a bit to keep it form tearing any more. While in Goshen, a tech came around and fixed it to the point that you really had to look for it. This guy was amazing! Had a whole tool box full of liquid vinyl repair stuff in every color and matched the wood grain perfectly. I thought it was something I was going to have to live with before he started.

CaptnJohn, out unit has the bumping issue whether at a campground, boondocking on the generator, or plugged in at home on it's own dedicated 50amp circuit. It's like the slide isn't aligned correctly or something. I also forgot to mention that when the slide is out and I check it from the outside underneath right where it goes in the coach there is a big gouge in the fiberglass about deadcenter maybe 3-4 inches long.

Sounds like something has worked loose, a screw maybe, and is catching the bottom. I would look on the inside and maybe pull the plywood up under the bed to see what's under there.

To me if so many folks have this same problem it is probably a design issue

Could very well be. On those coaches that are having the issue, are they '15 models or '16, or both?

Ours is a 2016 (not sure month) and it seems to happen regardless of shore power. We've had some nasty weather today, so I didn't have a chance to pass by where we store it, but I plan on it tomorrow. One thing i'd like to verify is if it does this when running it out. Seems like I only noticed the bounce when I brought it in.
