Chill, your banging on the floor sound from what appears to be the hydraulic ram may not be your problem. When we purchased our 2011 in 2012 there was a serious banging/rattle sound coming from around the dinette slide, After several adjustments on the rams by the dealer to no avail they sought help from the factory. The nylon bushings that the square slide supports ride on through the sidewall of the rig only visible on an extended slide were defective. Essentially what was banging was the whole slide! This was not visible nor was the problem with the defective bushings. They had to remove the slide from my motor home to change out the nylon bushings. Cost of bushings, $2.97! No rattles and must say my dealer and service techs did a great job.

We are located in Surprise AZ, NW of Phoenix about 25 miles.
The gas is cheaper here than along the Gulf Coast and no hurricanes.
We do have lakes here but no gulf.

Well it helps when you look at things in plenty of light, found the access to the ram and it is located in the propane area right above the propane tank Its black ABS plastic and you can't help but notice this. Will do the adjustment on Sat. when its gonna be warm.

Well just to update everything did the slid out adjustment and found a hugh concealed compartment above the propane tank. The space is approx. 4' X 4' by 8-9 inches tall. Think I'll be cutting a hole in the cover and adding a stinky, slinky tube there. If anyone wants to see the compartment just remove the black ABS plastic cover above the propane tank and you'll see it.

On my rig I have a compartment above the propane tank that is about 4ft. wide and 8inchs high and a good 6ft. in depth. I keep a 5ft. folding table in there along with a four step step stool, emergency triangles, tools, extra 25ft. water hose and a 3ft. break down table.
