Slideout noise while operating

Just wondering, in my 2006 winnebago sightseer 34a, when I'm moving the slides in and out the noise is kind of loud. Some coaches around same year they make noise also but not as loud. Does anyone who has a 34a, is it normal for slideout to make loud noise as it go in and out...?

Wish I could attach an audio file. It's not any bad noise. I should say when it is going in and out it's being loud compared to other coaches. I ut silicon lubricant on it all the time but still is loud when I use it.

I meant is it a mechanical scraping noise, a motor noise, rubbing noise, etc?

It's more like rubbing noise as bean supporting the slideout slides in and out. That's the best way I can describe it. Going to record it next time and put link to it here...

Did you notice any marks on the floor when the slide is out? That would be damaged or broken rollers. Measure each end of the slide when it is half-way in/out, they should measure the same.

There is nothing touching the floor as slideout moves in and out fine. What I'm going to check is see if the rollers the beam moving slide sitting on in actually rolling.... I will make a video and upload it .

These are the rollers I'm talking about. Have a feeling few are frozen and causing the noise. Click image for larger version

slideout noise

Fastwhls, I have the same set-up as yours on my 05 sunrise 33v mine makes noise going in and out hasn't changed in the nine years that we have owned it .those roller bearings can be cleaned up with a allen wrench and socket (one at a time) your side pads look to be in good shape. is that grease I see on the outside of the tube? there's a worm drive screw that's inside the tube that does all the work moving it in and out. there's a member on this forum that has a 2007 voyager he has a great post on the details.hit search feature .good luck

Try using this.
Spray it everywhere.
I just started using it and my slides are incredibly smooth and quiet. Click image for larger version

Thanks for your response. When I fixed the slide at 3TS last week they weren't concerned about it. The whites on the bar are grease. This is what I've been using to lubricate them.Click image for larger version

There is an inherent problem with applying grease to the beam sides and anywhere else where it is exposed to road dirt and grime. Grease and dirt mix and turn into a crude grinding compound. The wear pads do the sliding, the rollers rotate so there is no friction, grease actually does more harm than good IMO.
If you must use something to make steel slick, use DriSlide lubricant.
Yes it is expensive, and IMO worth every cent when used as directed. There are cheaper brands of molybdenum disulfide, at least one is in a spray can.

I agree with Ray,IN. The slides you have are Kwikee Digi-Sync. I have them too. Years ago I called the manufacturer (at that time Kwikee was owned by PowerGear, now they are owned by Lippert). They said not to put anything on the rails or pads, just keep them clean. Now, once a season I clean them as best as possible and then wipe the rails lightly with a bit of dry silicone spray. Also, as fun 33V stated, I removed each roller one by one and cleaned them. A few were locked up. My slides still make noise but not like they used to.

Fun 33V - would you provide more details on the post you referred to? My search came up with lots of hits but I haven't found the right one yet. Thanks.
