New floor: pulling slide out a few inches farther?

We are installing a new floor in our 2005 40FDTS and need to extend the big slide just a bit farther than it allows automatically. Is there an override and a manual release to get it an extra few inches further?

At full extension, I believe the flanges on the sides of the big slide are against the side wall of the coach--that's as far as it goes.....its not a mechanical adjustment issue...

You will either need to live with the clearances you have or remove the upper & forward (maybe there's also a rear? ) flanges for additional extension.
Pretty sure the professionals do the former.
