Slide making noises

We have a Forester 2401S which we took out for the first time this year. We were extending the slide and just as it got fully extended and dropped into place, it made a loud bang. This is the first time we've ever heard this noise. I checked under the RV and found a piece of metal that looked like it may have sheared off, see picture below. I'm not sure if it came off our RV or was laying on the ground when we arrived but I checked under the RV but couldn't find anything that looked out of place. The slide fully extends and retracts as it should without a problem but now makes that same loud bang each time it fully extends. Has anyone else seen or heard of this problem? I'm thinking I may need to take it to a local repair shop to have it checked out.

Gut feeling tells me that is a slide stop that came off when the one screw/bolt snapped. Check your slide manual or find your slide on line for pictures/diagrams of the slide mechanism. Good luck.

What kind of slide is this? My last camper had an issue with a lippert slide where the hole in the frame was cut too big. The stop cup was being pulled through the frame making a loud bang when the slide started to extend or was almost fully retracted.thst caused problems with other parts. I had to make some brackets to keep the cup from going through the frame. I don't have pictures of the final repair. Click image for larger version

My understanding is that the 2401S has the Lippert above floor slide. This slide does not go through the frame.

I found out that it was a slide stop that failed. I took my RV to Waterdog RV which is a local RV sales and service center and they fixed it for $165.00.
