slide adjustment on my Marquie

On our 04 Beaver the last few times we put the passenger slide in and start out withing the first 1/4 mile I could hear a "clunk" back by the rear of the slide where the stove is located. Never did this before. I took it to a local RV "repair??" shop. The mechanic asked me if I saw a missing part (a block) he said was missing from the top of the slide I told him we had not seen anything. Long story short after 3 tries we can not even get the slide to open up!!! The manager said they had to manafacture a block to stop the slide from going in to far and that I needed $1000 worth of new weather stripping. I called the Beaver dealer in Bend Oregon and talked with service dept. They said no block on the slide. I looked at the other slide and there is no block there. Called the local dealer back and after a heated discussion he told me that the reason the slide was going to far was because of the weather stripping and if I had them replace it that would stop the slide. I'm not the smartest cookie but how the hell is 1/8" weather strip going to keep several hundred pounds of slide from moving!! He said it would make a "air tight" fit. Headed back out Tuesday and at this point just want him to free up the slide.
I tried to tell him to just look at the other slide but "he has been in the business for 25 years and knows what the repair needs?????

Find time to go to Bend Or. is one option. Order the weather stripping and apply it yourself. I would find out why you can't get the slide to open. Could be gears or motor misaligned??deSanford PS..........Stay away from some of these shops unless you have money to burn.
