Well I have to say, so far not overly impressed with the drop slide. It clunks every time I hit a bump. I have adjusted the slide so there is no back and forward motion when locked in place, but it seems the slide tray doesn't quite sit flat on the 4 corner support bearings and it sort of bounces on the bearings.

I might have to try some teflon/nylon strip under the tray runners and see if that helps at all? Disappointing for a slide that is so expensive. The fridge is empty at the moment, but for the money these things cost it shouldn't matter if it's full or empty.

Apart from the annoying rattle/clunk, it all works well and does what it should, time will tell how long it lasts I guess.

I can't say I've had any problem like that even when I forget to turn the lock and engage the side prongs. May be worth getting onto MSA for a bit of trouble shooting.

Yep, I've sent MSA an email and will call them tomorrow and see if they have any idea's. This thing would drive me nuts on rough roads, so hopefully they have a simple fix or some advise on something I've done wrong fitting it.

I had to modify the arms where they lock in so it didn't rattle against the main slide mechanism. Its fixed a fair amount of the rattley noises, but that being said for $700 I'm not entirely impressed with the quality.

We ended up putting a piece of plywood across the base of ours- our fridge is a weird shape( evakool) and didn't sit nicely on the slide. And we couldn't easily secure it. Haven't had any problems with rattling or clunking, even after 3 weeks on the Canning. We had to strip it down to get all the dust out of the bearings when we got back,,otherwise it held up well. Hopefully MSA can help sort your problems!

I gave MSA a call today, they are going to send out a couple of extra of the Orange Nylon rectangle pieces. It's hard to explain but they seem to think it might need an additional piece stuck on below the tray, on one of the steel tabs.

I prised a piece of Nylon off the rear of the tray that wasn't required and placed it where they said, it doesn't seem to have made much difference. So I'll wait to see what they send out and give it a go.

These tabs are supposed to put some downwards pressure on the fridge tray to hold it onto the bearings when stowed away, but mine seems to have a fair bit of play in it. If this doesn't work I might glue a Nylon strip along the bottom of the runner and try that.

All the rattles seem to be gone, I temporarily stuck the extra piece of Nylon/Rubber type stuff on to the lug as in the above picture, this seems to have taken care of the clunking sound, and I also just stuff a rag in next to the handle to stop any vibration. All seems good now! I'll make it permanent once the MSA pieces arrive. Certainly can't complain about the customer service from MSA, good to see a company stand behind their product.

I also picked up an MSA FB1 Fridge barrier at a good price, thanks to Matatak! I found when I went to fit the fridge barrier, that I had to move the slide as far forward as I could get it, so the back of the fridge barrier would clear the curve in my cargo barrier. Pain in the butt, but all done now and seems to be rattle free, I would say it will probably rattle on corrugations, but what doesn't?

That is interesting to know that the barrier actually fits. I wouldn't buy one because the measurements I took were too close and I didn't think it would make it. I ended up throwing together a plywood barrier.
