Dutch Star Slide Out Question

Hello All,

I have a quick slide question, on my 2002 DSDP the bedroom slide does not go in all the way at the top. Bottom is flush w/body, but at the top there is about 1/2" out from the body. My question is can this be adjusted or is it possible the slide has been damaged. Any help appreciated

I am not sure there is an adjustment on the slide it is pretty simple arrangement.

"kitakat11".....without seeing your coach, typically they're adjustable. You have to look outside and inside. On my previous coach, when you looked under the bedroom slide from the inside, there were screws, that when turned, raised or lowered the rollers. This causes the top to tip out or tip in. Sometimes these adjustments are on the outside. They can be large bolts that lift the edge of the slide upward, making it tip in when closed. Make small adjustments and note your starting point (like how many turns) then check the outcome.

Dutch Star Slide Out Question

If your bedroom slide is like mine on a 2002 4095 MADP there are not any adjustments on the guide rollers it is all welded and the mounts to the slide are through bolts without any adjusters. Just double checked this. The only adjustable part is the rollers that support the end of the bed. I suppose if they were too low or something was under them it might tip the top out. Also just checked mine with locks disengaged and top is out about 3/8-1/2" further than the bottom. The locks pull it in tight at the top.
I had a document with several iterations of Newmar slides but none showed the simple bedroom slide like on our 2002.
