Thor Hurricane Slideout noise

Hi folks!
I have a 2011 Class A Four Winds Thor Hurricane 31D that has 2 slideouts. Recently, one of my slideouts began to make a loud popping noise. It only makes the noise at certain intervals when the slide is either extending or retracting. It sounds like a gear slipping or popping. Is this something I can fix or do I have to bring it in to the dealer?

Does the slide need aligning and can I do this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There is a lot of various posts on slide noise. Not sure I've seen one with when the slide is opening or closing. Most (mine included) has a slapping noise when moving. Do a Google search looking for a noisy slide on a Thor.
