HWH Room slide adjustments

Hi Guys & Girls, This is my first post here. I have a 38' Alpine who's
Vanity slide does not extend all the way out. It is the "X arm" type
with two cylinders and a balancing cylinder. Does anyone know what
"limits the travel" of the slide? The specs. say it will go out 30 some inches, but only goes about 12" or so, leaving about 4""-5" inside the coach. Is there an adjustment, or can you change the Cylinders to increase the travel? HWH seems to be closed for the Hollidays?
Thank you. Ken

My vanity slides does not extend all the way out. I was told it is adjusted correctly. From the inside it appears it could extend another 6 inches. After closer examination there is a chase-way on the bottom that electric and water are run through. It appears there is no more travel available.

Ken, my vanity slide also uses a scissors style mechanism that looks as though it could go out 4 -5" further when opened. If you have the same style mechanism, look around either end at the mechanism and you can verify that there's actually no way for it go out further. The scissor mechanism basically "closes" when the slide opens.

I'm guessing the vanity slide mechanism may not be the same for all years but that's the way my 2003 works.

Hold the phone here--a 38' doesnt have a vanity slide [passenger side], just a wardrobe slide [driver side]. If it is a vanity slide, then the scissor only opens about 10-12", leaving about a 6" gap inside between the trim board and the coach side wall [you can verify by looking at the threaded rod stops on either side of the vanity slide. A wardrobe slide [non-40'] owner will need to address its full open position.

I want to thank you all for taking the time to reply. Armed with your perspectives, I looked the Vanity X slide over and it is TRUE that there
is no more outward movement. Due to the interior mounting of the hardware between the inside of the wall, and the back of the slide face
there is no extra space to go out anymore. So it is as good as it is going to get. Can't really complain about that. So untill next time
THANKS! Ken
