Living room slide rattling & vibrating

When driving my slide out behind the driver seat is rattling & vibrating like crazy... Annoying! Seems to be most noticeable at top. Not so at the other end. This is a large S/O for living room + dinette. Appears to be closed up tight from an outside view. It is a 2005 Fleetwood Bounder DP. Are there any adjustments or catches that need to engage?? Any thoughts on how to fix?

You sure it is the entire slide or just the slide topper. We have had the topper to blow out and vibrate in a quartering wind. Might be the spring needs tightening. Is there a way you can tie the topper off tight and then take a drive and see what the results are. I have never tightened a spring in one, but I'm sure there are technicians at RV shops that can do it with little trouble

Mine was doing this after I replaced the carpet and padding that the slide sits on when in. After some research I found that the carpet and padding was thicker then the factory original carpet and padding. I removed the nice plush padding and my problem went away. My slide was hanging out a 1/2" at the top. If you have redone the flooring this may be your problem. The slide can be adjusted if needed.
