Yup--hydraulic genset slides have an adjustor on the end of each slide arm [same as the large room slide]. The adjustors consist of a large allen-wrench set-screw in the middle with a locking nut on the outside.
PS--these arms are pretty sturdy--hard to get them out of alignment. Might check the other components in/around the slide mechanism to see what may have changed to cause the mis-alignment....

Wonder when the slide was last lubricated? Grease, grease, grease. By 2005 WRV had gone to an electric vs hydraulic slide, same thing, grease!

On my 2003, the front bolt on each slide support was loose. Tightened them up, and readjusted the stops that Old Scout mentioned. You guys might also want to check the midway support bold on your fresh water tank frames. I found mine sheered off. Could have eventually caused a problem. I Drilled it out a little larger and put a large grade 8 bolt in.

Dan, check the alpine tech library, there are instructions for adjusting the main slide.

Could be the gen slide fiberglass cap is shifting. Its bolted on. More or less. Sort of.
With a little study the correct adjustment can be discerned.

Mike--assume you are referring to the 8 rather large bolts [4 for each arm][on the 03 anyway] that hold the cap onto the genset slide frame???? I recently had the cap off--don't ask why--and I found that by the time you get all 8 bolts align with the holes, there really wasn't much adjustment to be had....
