Living room slide question

Hello Everyone, I have just discovered, when retracting the living room slide, that it didn't completely flush seal to the side of the coach. Looking at the living room slide, from the outside, it appears all sides are flush except the upper left corner where there is a 1/2 gap.

Thank You

Make and model of slide

Hydraulic, cable or Rack and Pinion?

I have power gear rack and pinion.. That sounds like what happens when one of the racks jumps a tooth or two.

Home is where I park it!

Assume you are talking about the main slide on drivers side? Lots of discussion on the forum about jacks up or down when putting the slide in. In some coaches the frame/ sidewall flex a bit and the inside corner of the slide hangs up. In which case the slide eventually aligns and moves inside the corner as you drive off. Could also be that the slide guides are off and need adjusting--this is a bit more complicated to fix. Besure you let the slide rams load up a second or two after the slides close before releasing the rocker switches.

Had the same problem. The opening for the slide was not cut square allowing the slide to hang up just before closing all the way. I shaved a bit of the aluminum off the slide edge and lubricated the area with a bit of silicone spray. That has seemed to solve the problem.
