Living Room Slideout not Square

We bought our 2006 Diplomat about 9 months ago. Yesterday we encountered our first really bad rainstorm (it rained hard all day) while we were using it. Last night we discovered the floor on the passenger side by the front slideout was soaked. When we went out this morning to check from the outside, we realized the whole slide is about an inch out of square. Is there some adjustment we can make or is this a "take it in for service" type of thing. We aren't real handy. Is this a common thing or what might have caused this. Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

If the bottom is all the way in and the top is out and not sealing an adjustment is in order. Claiming you are not very handy you are best to take it to someone that works on RV slides. I have adjusted mine and found adjustment documents from powergear for my Holiday Rambler but I have been a mechanic all my life. I know a lot of people don't use them but the manual slide out locks do work well for keeping the slides from going out of adjustment while traveling, bumping down the road can jar the rig enough to knock them out of adjustment. It also depends on if it is a flat floor slide or straight slide. The flat floor slides are harder to adjust.
