Slide-out Question

I noticed last night when pulling in all my slides that one of the slides does a left to right jiggle when coming in. Is this normal? Our 1996 Winnebago 30B did this with it's one slide and I assumed it was normal. But now I am wondering since only one of the slides out of three on the new motorhome jiggle.

This is a brand new motorhome with zero camping trips yet.

Knowing the Georgetown units over the years I would say it is normal for the slide out system used.

It may be perfectly normal but since you're under the warranty period, it might not hurt to have it checked out. At a minimum, it will create a record that you had some concerns from the beginning. This can often be useful if the slide has a problem after the warranty runs out. Best of luck.

We have had slides do that and it turned out the 'bushings' (that is what they called it) had dislodged. It is what the slide rides in on. We just pulled them off since all (5th wheel and MH) were out of warranty.
