Am I worrying too much or should I try to limit everyone on that side at once as much as possible?
I have the same concern, just spent a week in upstate New York with our 28BHBE. My family came up to visit and we had dinner several times. Six adults and one child, upwards of 900lb of us in the dinette did cause quite alot of extra side-to-side motion, but the slide felt solid. When we packed-up to leave I noticed that when I retracted the slide there was some slight bending of the slide wall between the dinette and couch.
I am going to use it a few more times this season and see if that persists, hopefully it was just because we had so much weight in the slide. I am thinking of slide supports since I doubt the dealer is going to rip apart the slide wall and reinforce it...
