Weird slide movement??

Moved today to another park in central Texas and watched my driver side opposing slide acting strange. On right turns and lane adjustments watched the
upper edge of slide move two to three inches and then when I straighten out it kind of flops back. Also noticed the last two times we have moved that the slide goes in but not all the way until I butt bump it the last inch or so. Have only the two opposing slides plus the bedroom side on this rig.

The question is, it out of adjustment on the top-bottom or should I be looking at something else?

Dave

Answer; Schwintek, like 95% of all slides. Had rv tech diagnose. All is well.

Sounds like this is one of those applications where a slide lock bar is essential.


Luckily, my slide movement is controlled by a rack and pinion and front/rear move in concert. Actuator motor pulls it in nice and snug and driving down the road there is no movement, top/bottom/front/rear. From what I have been reading it appears Schwintek slides are high maintenance.
