Curbside slide creeps out

Noticed something interesting on our most recent trip. The curbside slide creeps out a bit as we travel. It was fully retracted, and over the course of a couple hours travel it moved out about 2 inches. Only the one slide is doing this, and has done so at least twice now. Any way to resolve this, preferably without going to the dealer?

Thanks

Don't know what type unit you have, but my cousin has a Flafstaff. His slide came with two "slide locks". All it amounted to was 2 rods that when the slide was in, they fit on top of the slide. One end would be against the interior wall and the other end against the woodwork on the interior side of the slide. Interior wall even had factory stickers to show where to place the rods. Hope this is clearer than mud the way I explained it. Maybe you could try using 2 pieces of 2x4 cut to size. REMEMBER TO REMOVE THE SLIDE LOCKS PRIOR TO EXTENDING THE SLIDE OUT! Hope this helps.

Sorry it is a Trilogy 38RE. The slide is fairly sizable, I think it may be too heavy for slide locks.

Just an update: Smooth roads, no problems. Rough roads, the slide pops out a bit. We did over 1500km of smooth road and it never budged an inch. 100km into the rough stuff, and it was out 2 inches.
