Slideout coming out

We have an 09 GT 357QS and just yesterday noticed that when driving into our storage facility which has a rickity rockity roadway that our rear bed slide started coming out about an inch when rocking back and forth and then going back in when rocking the other way. I'm not sure if there is an adjustment that can be made to tighten it up or what. It works fine with moving it in and out with the switch and fits snug when brought in. Any help would be mucho appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Do you know if it is hydraulic or electric? If electric, the cables might be loose. In any event, as a temporary cure, I would cut a couple of pieces of 2x4 and place them above the slide when closed.

Just be sure to remove B4 you try to open.

Might want to split a 2 x 4 and cut length to fit on top of the slide to prevent it. A lot of units come with adjustable poles to install while in transit.
