First.. welcome to iRV2.
Surprise surprise surprise. I had this happen to me this weekend. My first real trip out. I've had my '06 Holiday Rambler Admiral Se for about a month now. I've had the slides in and out a few times during that period. Went on a camping trip this week and.. lo and behold.. getting ready to return home my roadside slide did the same thing. I heard a loud pop and stopped the slide. Went over to inspect it and found a piece of wood on the floor and a small piece of the beautiful wood trim broken.
On inspection, I could see that the slide was not coming in straight. It appeared "torqued" for lack of better terms.. in that the top left (rear) edge of the room was closer to the back wall of the room than the bottom was.. YET, when I finally got the slide closed.. everything looked fine outside.. it all looked in line with all the outside trim.. but, inside the top left corner was closer to the mirrored wall than the bottom... like it was tilted about 5 or so degrees.
Sad.. I called HR tech as a first contact. He was not helpful. I had two questions. One.. does this MH have a fresh water tank drain? He didn't know. Told me to open the "low point" drains and turn on the pump. I've never had an RV that didn't have a drain. That's another story...
Regarding the slide.. he also had no information to help. Just gave me a few "local" Monaco dealers to call. He said a slide is a slide.. anyone who works on slide rooms should be able to take care of the problem. This tech help is sad. Hope to feel better about this after I have my first cuppa.
Getting back to my point before the "rant".. I have no idea what could have caused this problem. Went out without a hitch.. didn't back into anything. I don't know if somehow the "room" jumped a track or what.
