Slide roller tapping noise

We have a 19 33AA and on some roads it seems the rollers will tap on the tile floor and make a hollow sort of tapping/rattle when traveling down the highway over expansion joints in concrete. Yes, the slides are in LOL.
Has anyone else experienced this and is putting a thin runner or other throw rug under the slide when it is about a foot from completing retraction an acceptable solution?
The notion is to allow the slide (which is the hydraulic version) to roll up on a thin carpet/throw rug to keep it from tapping on the floor.

There are a few available devices. Some folks use plastic placemats.

I use "No Residue Duct Tape" laid on the tile floor where the roller will rest.
