Mine makes a sound that I can only describe as a hollow wall with a long steel rod or pipe that "thuds" one one side of the wall to the other as you turn or hit bumps. Almost sounds like it is coming from the roof.

Mobile RV mechanic says the sound is the 4 small wheels that the HUGE slide rest on. Too much weight on too few supports. I'm trying the slide support/locks and I'm going to wedge some door stops under slide and floor to support weight.

I have a 33.3 and had similar noise from just behind drivers head on the wall. It was the overhead bunk track (if your model has the bunk?). The tension added up or down against lock pins eliminated this noise.

Thanks. I heard a loud pop when airing up the suspension after retracting the jacks. I will try airing up first.

I have a 33.2 and do not have the overhead bunk, but I have the noise. I have not been able to locate the source. I always install mr travel bar before moving and it does not help. It sounds like something hanging and banging into things as it swings.

The sound I hear is like a constant squeaking of possibly loose screws that allow the rubbing of metal against metal. I also use the travel bar, but it doesn't help. I did find several loose screws on the the top and bottom plates on the inside of the slide. I did tighten them up but it did not help. I'm hoping the problem is not too complicated to resolve as by reading the other owner's comments, it appears to be a common problem. I do appreciate any feedback that helps to resolve the problem.

Our slide made similar sounds while traveling. Was adjusted at the factory. No problems since.

I was ask what my travel bar looked like. I have attached pictures of it installed and uninstalled. When I took delivery of my Palazzo I specifically ask where it was. If I had not, I don't think it would have been mentioned. I did ask why I only had one considering I have two slides. The answer I was given was the bedroom slide was not big enough to require one. I learned how important the travel bar was from my previous RV. My Via required a key to operate the slide. The key was attached to the travel bar. That way you could not extend the slide without removing the travel bar and when you retracted the slide, you had the travel bar in your hand. The manual has a caution to not extend your slide without removing the travel bar, but nothing to prevent you from doing it. We put a reminder on the panel right below the slide button using a piece of tape.

I put a flexible orange plastic flap over the button to remind me to remove the travel bar before extending the slide. Works for me .

We love our coach'n

Anyone have thoughts about Goodyear's info?
Since Goodyear makes the tires I expect they know what is best.

Thanks for that post. As soon as my overhead bunk gets fixed I'll try that. You see the schwinntech gears stripped and broke on our fist day using them. Bunk was stuck down. Could not drive. Had to remove motors to manually lift bunk and pin it up. Waiting for parts from Thor. I'm sure it won't take long to fix.
