Is it possible to adjust the travel on the front slides on a DIP/End? A good portion of the middle of the top seal one of our front slides lacks about 1/4" of fully touching the rubber seal. I called Monaco but they recommended taking it to the dealer. Yea, right and I get it back in worse shape than before. Sounded like a liability answer from Monaco. Has anyone tweaked the slides?

You can adjust the stops on the bottom outside to make it slide in tighter, but sounds like you're bowed out in the center.

Open the slide and look underneath for the stops.

Thanks Don. It is bowed slightly in the middle and the gasket is just slightly touching the ends and I think there is more than enough gasket to fully seal. I said 1/4" but thinking back it is probably more like 1/8". I'll take a look at the slide and find the adjustment bolts.
