need slidout information

Hello All! I am new to the Forum and I posted a request for information in the general class a motor home forum. I meant to post in the Damon/Thor motor home specific forum where I am sure that I will get an answer to my question. My question has to do with the location of the motor assembly for the large, or any slide for that matter, on my 2011 Challenger 3710 model motor home. I didn't get a very complete walkthrough when the coach was delivered (it was night and the delivery person wanted to get back to IN) My request centers around a rather distinguishable "snapping" sound when the large (curbside) slide is acutated. Once the slide begins to move, it sounds fine, it is just the initial movement that iniates the sound. I would like to locate the motor and related mechanisms to make certain that there isn't some type of blockage causing the sound on the movement at start up to extend - or is this a common sound? The other two slides are virtually quiet for both extension and retract modes. Any information would be helpful. Thanks, and BTW, great forum with very valuable information, especially for a newbie. Also, the Challeger is a great unit with no issues as yet!

Hello Bronk,
You may want to visit a dealer. A friend of mine has the same model and we found that the screws on the slide hung on the side when starting out, making a loud noise. His slide was out of adjustment and it had to be adjusted.
