Slide question.

This is my 2nd trailer and when I run the slides out it pops at the very end when the slide stops. Like a gear popping or something. Both of these trailers have done it and the dealer says its normal. Is this really true? Just curious Thanks

Does it almost sound like a gear/clutch slipping? If so, it's normal. You want to have this happen as little as possible- it's impossible to not do it and be assured your slide is fully in or out, but you want to minimize it.

My dealer told me too that the sound is normal operation.
