Strange noise under slide

A little after we put out the livingroom slide, we heard a faint intermittent, light, thumping/clicking noise outside. We went outside and listened under the slide, and determined it was somewhere behind (inside the coach) the frontmost support under the slide. I brought the slide in a few inches, then moved it out again, and the noise went away. Any idea what the noise might have been?

On occasion our slide will creep in. When it does, it moves in small increments, making a thump-click-tock kind of sound.

I've had that sound when the coach settles on the jacks or the jacks settle on the ground.
