loud creaking noise in 3050S

I've noticed a very loud creaking noise when driving the 3050S. We just got it this summer, and it didn't make this noise when we test drove it. It seems to have gotten worse - or maybe it's just bugging me more now. I've walked around inside while wife was driving and the best I can tell it's coming from the top of the slide where the motor is (up front right behind the driver). It seems to happen when parking the rv, going slow on an unlevel spot, etc... I don't hear it driving down the highway. I know there must be a lot of flex in the slide with it being so big. Just wondering if any other 3050S owners have this loud creaking noise.

Hopefully it's just a slide adjustment. I would however look closely at the corner areas outside for any cracks in the fiber glass indicating a structural or flexing issue. Wall slides have just recently shown up in Class Cs mainly because of the stress the large hole puts on the chassis and structure requiring careful design and construction.

Might want to try lubing the slide gaskets with talcum powder or a silicone spray.
