Pullrite Superglide Hitch Clunking

Does anyone have a pullrite hitch and does it do this? We have only towed about 1000 miles with it so far and it seems to have a bit of "slop" and play in the main pivot. I sent this video to pullrite just now so I'll keep you posted what they say.
The video Link is here.

I have what appears to be the exact same hitch (4400). It's brand new. It does pretty much exactly the same thing and has a "clunk" to it. There's a stop you can adjust, but the slop seems to be between those two "pads" that ride on the metal rails.

This is my first 5th wheel and I expected some additional play with the auto-slider, but this is largely play in the "tow" position.

Extensive discussion on the problem here:
RV.Net Open Roads Forum: SuperGlide Owners – Am I the ONLY one with this problem?

I registered my hitch and got a reply from PullRite.. I'd need to take a video before asking them about this issue.

I just got a reply from PullRite today that said

Thanks for your email. You mentioned you had adjusted the forward stop and that it didn't do anything. I'm not sure how tightly you have that adjusted, but it should be snug enough that is very hard to move the hitch plate forward and back on the silver way tubes. Snug enough that you have to be in the back of the truck with both hands on either side of that hitch plate putting some muscle into it to pop it out of forward.

If it is that snug, then I would suggest checking where your trailer brakes are set. You should be able to feel without a doubt that the trailer is what's doing the stopping, not the truck. Keeping in mind that the trailer brakes won't have enough time to activate at slow stops and starts and or in stop and go traffic. In that instance, you will feel more chucking.

There will always be some kind of movement at that point, and if checking these things and adjusting if needed doesn't not make a difference, let us know and we try to diagnose things further

So i don't think I have it anywhere near tight enough because if I take a corner pretty hard or stop without the trailer, the hitch slams around. I'm going to tighten and see what happens.
