New 35G pops in cab

My new 35G makes popping noise with least amount of bumps. It is things rubbing. I discovered two sides so the windshield frame rub on the dash so I used some heavy liner material and it stopped. Still have some issues. Anybody else with similar.

Hi . Hopefully one of the owners of this model will chime in soon. What year is your Rv? If it is an older model knowing the year help others chime in. If it is older, perhaps the bumps and temperature changes over the years weakened the sealant a bit. Good luck

I have a 2013 35G with some noise issues as well. The major issue was the slide just above the passengers seat.
I lubed, oiled and baby powdered that thing many times until I finally figured out that it was the gear rubbing on the rack when the slide was moving forward and back on rough roads.
It makes a popping noise. I was convinced it was dry rubber against paint.
What I found that would temporarally fix it was spraying a lube right into the rack and gear area.
This will keep the noise at bay for a couple of hundred miles or so.
My next plan is to use a heavy/stick grease in the rack whenthe slide is out just in the area where the gear is engaged to the rack when closed.
I have other squeeks near the overhead cabinets/windshield but havent gotten to those yet.
We have only had this RV since March 2014. It was a holdover unit so it still only has about 6,000 miles on it.

If your rig has the Schwintek slide system you are likely out of adjustment. Many of these systems were poorly installed at the factory and just not properly squared up and require adjustment by the dealer.

I hadnt considered wear. Will have to check that out.
My RV is in for a driver side window replacement right now (lock did not function) I will see if they can look at it.

Thanks Chabago and Spanuts for the tips.

Dealer found the problem. Window frames rubbing. He loosened screws and lubed between.

Just got my RV back last week after having a new drivers side window installed because the lock did not work on the original.
I had alot of additional noise on the ride home and concluded that the window frame was the culprit. It went back in the end of last week for a day and they re-installed window and added something between the frame and wall to stop noise. They also pulled the passenger side window and re-installed that one too since itwas alsomaking noise. All quiet now.
Apparently this is not unusual since cpoo had same problem.
I added slide locks to my passenger slide to see if that would stop the slide noise. It did make it quieter but did not solve the problem.
Will have to get it back in for an adjustment.

good info from Winnebago they r repairing the drivers side slide, the two motors will be changed out with the 500 to 1 motors and miscellaneous hardware some time next week. Hope this takes care of problem only have 5 more weeks of warranty time left. This was a December 2012 built date. don't know if this was a common problem or not. The slide was extended a total of 35 times since purchased and 8500 miles on unit always leveled before deployed. im going to try a picture of rack gear

Hey Spanuts, is the rack showing wear in your pics or is that grease buildup?

BTW I started a 3 week PNW tour today and MH has never been so quiet. The drivers and passenger side windows were most of the noises in the cab.
Still have some minor pops from slide on rough roads but so much better than before.
Thanks for everyones help and comments.

rvbuzz yep that's wear. I used armor all on a rag on all the seals inside and out made a lot less slide noise. Also did the rubber seal around the entrance door it was driving me nuts lots better now. did you try the crc power lube on the slide parts. have a safe fun trip

The last Thing I tried was synthetic CV axle grease. So far it has been working as well as using a slide lock.

I have not tried the CRC yet but spray lubes seemed to only last 100-200 miles.

Which slide lock did you get? Do you use 2 or just 1 of them?
