FR3 front slide out noise

When we extended or bring in our sofa dinette slide out on our 2017 FR3 30DS motor home a banging sound happens once during the opening and closing process. The slide still extends or closes.

Anyone else experience this and what was it?

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. I'm going to assume you hear the noise at the end of travel either extending or retracting and if so YES the banning noise the the clutch slipping it keeps you from over torquing the motor or parts. as soon as you hear it release the switch.
