It's because the stationary end of the track is at the metal junction box, which is not mounted to the slide. The movement end is mounted to the front inside face of the slide. As the slide moves out, it pushes the track against the outside wall

I see said the blind man to his deaf assistant after he saw the empty truck full of bricks run over the dead cat and kill it.

Yes that's correct. I seem to have the problems when the slide is almost completely out. The track bunches up in the opening and pops the joints apart.

Maybe they should have put a couple more joints of track in.

I talked with Bryan Knight at Georgetown today about this issue and he said they have in at least one case, installed a nylon track to guide the E-track (official name) up the wall. I'm sending him pictures tomorrow of what mine is doing. May see about getting some of this nylon track to guide the E-track
