Yesterday I dropped about 1/3rd of the corplast. I cut it the width of the trailer behind the rear wheels. Couldn't see or hear anything wrong that would be causing such a loud screeching when the last half on the slide is going out or when the slide starts back in. I had DW operate the slide while I was under there, could not see anything binding or rubbing. The slide ram has good clearance through the frame, all mounting bolts of the slide motor and actuator were tight and did not have any marks on them to indicate movement.

Today I'll get a piece of furring strip from HD to fit between the frame. Replace the corplast I took down and screw the seam of the corplast to the furring strip. From what I can tell the screeching may be caused by the underside of the slide rubbing on something that up to now I can't see. There are no marks or scratches on the underside so I'm unsure of my next step. DW said we can live with it but it bothers the heck out of me.

Could be a "high" staple in the plastic wear blocks located inside under the rug overhang of the slide.

Will try to get photos of mine today.

While out there I replaced the Olyvia TV with a 32 inch LG Smart TV (JUST fit) and hooked it into the Genesis 3.0 with fiber optic sound and a new high speed HDMI cable. Have plans on using a Sandisk Wireless Flash Drive to spool movies if I can figure out how to use my Surface as a front end.

It works GREAT with an iPad but I wanted something I can use while the DW watches her Phillies on the iPad with her MLB App.

I also hung an Indian arrow we got at Four Points over the door. It is supposed to protect the home from harm befalling it.

On our last trip, we noticed Rocky seemed to move a bit whenever one of us was walking around, even though I had the stabilizers down and had them down tight.

I was outside bbq'ing and the wife was walking around and I noticed the two tires would move back and forth just a little bit, but enough to be too much.

So just ordered a pair of these...supposed to fix that!

Do a search on Youtube...I found mine (EEZTire TPMS) and a couple of complete walk-throughs on setting it up.

Jacks in front of the axles will help also.
