Since the 2015s and earlier were electric slides and the 2016 and later are hydraulic HWH slides we may be talking about two different problems here. I may have to call (or e-mail) Rick for any advice on my FWS rear end gap, as much as I'll hate to after what I seemed to irritate him with my last problem.

My full wall slide is hydraulic but the 2 smaller slides are electric. So I believe you are correct. My problem is with the FWS.

I read someone asked if slide-outs could be move in/out just a few inches then returned since Newwar recommends going completely in/out without stopping but never saw any answers. Can this cause any harm and do any of you ever have to do this?

Just developed incomplete slide sealing on the kitchen slide not completely sealing at the top.
I adjusted the locking arm to the highest position and locked the arm. Went outside and saw the top pulled in the 1/2" needed to seal completely.

Does anyone utilize all the manual locking arms on the three slides?
If so, can you instruct me on how to utilize the cumbersome bar to gain access to the rear locking arms? Such a outdated system.

Saw your post and the "clang" caught my eye! We have MA2011 4344; our bedroom slide sometimes does the "clang" thing. What is causing and how do we remedy!! Thanks for your post!

Lenmar --
I have a 2012 MA 4344 and had the same noise closing the bedroom slide. On mine, I lifted the bed, and watched it going in and out to locate the problem.
There is a long piece of all thread with jamb nuts which serve as the stop for the slide. This piece of all thread is so long that it "bows" in the middle, and as the slide is about in the 1/2 closed position, it will rub on the support member that it passes through.
I split a rubber grommet, and put it in the hole that the rod passes through. Noise gone.
Give it a try.

Post CLANG on bedroom slide

HI Beach Aire, We appreciate your suggestion and will definitely look into it on our next trip ( next week ) and see if we can duplicate your "fix"! Just strange that it started doing this after so many years. Guessing we first noticed it last year 2016 so 5 years old. Will give update....

Anyone know if the OP's original issue was resolved? I'd like to know how it was fixed. Thanks!

I have been putting my FWS in and out at ride height and am getting a much better seal all around. It has never sealed at the bottom as well as I would like or feel it should but it is usually less than a half inch of gap. Sometimes it is near flush to almost flush but not often. It is though much better than the results I was getting when on jacks.

Took the RV to have serviced and the technician said the nut on the threaded rod had come loose. He tightened it and now works fine. We are guessing with years of driving it had worked its way loose. Just guessing.
