At the factory service center they shimmed the slide and aligned the gears. Wish I could tell you more but that's what I was told.
No noise since .

I can't even get anyone from Thor customer service on the phone!! I have put in 2 calls to Mark Stanley with no call back yet!!
I guess a class action against Thor, Lippert, and Schwintek is next!! Along with a buy back of my 2013 33.2!!!
I am fed up with this rolling Nightmare!!!

Mine had a creak in the same place which was annoying when driving. I got 2 of the slide out lock bars. I put one on top and one on the bottom and that solved 95% of the noise on mine.

Where did you get the second one? I looked on Camping World and did not find one.

I purchased mine on line from PPLmotorhomes.com, cost about $38 plus shipping. I have ordered a number of items from PPL...good company to order from.

I am amazed with some folks not having good luck with Thor and many others do, when are one of the ones that have had great cooperation from Thor and our dealer in Mesa, Az! Other than some issues with our new 33.3 we love our coach and Thor! Why do you think some people have good dealings and others not?

Don't know the answer to that. I've had good service so far. Takes me a while to get someone on the phone but it's somewhat understandable having seen the call center.
Any parts I've needed have been shipped ASAP no questions ask.
I plan to make the trip to Elkhart at least every other year just like I plan to make an annual trip to Gaffney for service.

I would love the name and number of the factory service center. I'd like to call and ask them what they did and did thor show them fix so I can get CW to fix mine.
