Hi everyone I need your opinion on a problem I am having with the double slide on my 2004 hornet 30 ft b . I just purchased this unit about a month ago and havent used it yet. the first couple of times I operated the slide it worked great, but now it makes a godawful groaning or squealing noise. I also noticed the bellyliner under the slide is getting ripped. The unit is level and I've tried adjusting the slide about one quarter of an inch up also lubed everything in sight with silicone lube. Any help would be appreciated.

Take it back to the dealer. I assume you did buy it from a dealer? Slide adjustments are kind of hard as I understand it if you have not done it before, or learned the proper way to do it.

Go to RV manuals, download the slide-out manual. You may find something useful there.

When mine started to scream I found that there was a solid rod attached to the slide that as it moved in and out activated the limit switches. It passed thru a hole drilled in the right hand trailer foundation beam. It was rubbing of the beam and making the noise. A little lubricant solved the problem.

If the bottom of the slide is being ripped as you said, I am betting there is a forign object under the slide inside the rig. Doesn't take much a screw, bolt, nut, etc.

Run the slide almost all the way out then take a flashlight and try and look under the slide./ Best to do this after dark.

Mine had a 7/16 3/8dr socket under it that I had to get out.
