Now at 7 a.m. we are hearing a gentle banging noise like someone is fixing something outside under bed area of motorhome. Could it have something to do with jacks?

You need a tech to look at it. Sounds like there is a problem with the switch and/or wiring. The slide motor probably has a circuit breaker on it that's letting go due to overload. It's designed to reset itself as soon as it cools off - causing the slide motor to try and move the slide again. The slide can't move any further than it is, so the load on the slide motor causes the circuit breaker to let go agian, and on and on - until something burns out - the breaker or the motor.

Remove the Extend/Retract switch from your panel, mark wire positions, then remove wires from the switch. Inspect switch for burning, and see if the noises stop.

In a perfect world, you only have a bad switch.

dev, you said the sofa/dinette slide came in. Is this the only slide that moved?
- if you are plugged into to shore power, turning off the 12 volt system should not impact anything. 12 volts is constantly supplied via the 110vac 12vdc converter.
- in order for the slide out switches to work, the emergency brake must be on AND the ignition switch must be in the ON position. So any short in the switch or wiring should not cause this problem unless your ignition is on right now.
- Is your bed on the driver or passenger side. (34B or 34R)

Passenger side but the slide that came in was on the driver's side.
The pounding sound is on the passenger's side in bedroom.
No key was on

Did the slide come all the way in as if the switch were depressed or did the slide just kinda drift in somewhat?
Are you hooked up to shore power through all of this?

Are you using a surge/power protection device at the post?

Hummm, well, if were me, I would now be on the phone with with Fleetwood customer support. Strange problem here.
If they are anything like Winnebago or Tiffin support, they will get you going.
