Seems like it has to do with shifting of balance point. I have not seen the blocks referred to by others but maybe I'm looking in the wrong place. Ant suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.
My 8289WS was doing the same squealing as you describe. Below are pictures of the wear blocks I installed, this took care of my squealing problem. I ordered from FR , it came in one strip that I cut and drilled. The slide has to be all the way out, lift the lip of the slide carpet at either end. You will see weather you have them or not. My dinette / entertainment slide never had any installed, the kitchen / sofa slide had them.
