Bedroom Slide

I have a 2005 Gulfstream Endura 6340.  My bedroom slide goes out smoothly untill the last 6 to 12 inches when it seems to catch or bind up.  It makes 2 to 3 clunking sounds before it fully extends.  There is 3/4 of inch difference between the front  and back of the slide when extended.

I have read Equalizers bulletion about the timing assembly an the trantorque adjustment.  That ends with any remaining adjust will be done by Gulfstream.  Thus, the entire mechanism would need to be adjusted in order to get the slide to extract evenly.  There are no issues when it retracts,

Has anyone encounteed the clunking and catching when extracting and if so has anyone attempted to re-align the slide..

As always thanks in advance

Doug,
If you haven’t found the answer yet. If I were you I would tak the mattress off, then remove she plywood flooring so you can see what might be sticking. I believe there are bolts at the end bar the hydraulic piston connects to. You can add shims if needed, to time it correctly.
Also check the outside sheet metal flooring to see it it’s is bent or toren, causing it to bunch up on one side or the other.
I ended up taking the out side sheet metal out and adding a 3/16 sheet of metal as a replacement outer floor. That cured my slide issues. It’s a tricky job to jack up the outside and the inside of the slide to get new outer flooring to fit in.i drilled and tapered holes in the 3/16 steel sheet that lined up with the aluminum, cross members. I used self taping counter sunk screws to attaché it. That was 3 years ago.
Just saying. This might be of som help to you
