Slide Adjustment, 2000 Holiday Rambler 38WDS

I have a 2000 Holiday Rambler 38WDS single slide. I have a water leak around the slide when the slide is retracted. With the slide fully in, the gap at the bottom of the slide (on the side) is much smaller at the bottom than at the top. To correct the leak problem, I need to reduce the gap at the top (thereby increasing the pressure in the weatherstrip seal at the top).

I'm fairly sure it's a Power Gear Slide system, and it is not the "flat floor" version. It runs on 2 rails, has one electric motor, and really works well except for the needed adjustment.

The slide has adjustments for "out stop adjustment", "in stop adjustment", and "vertical height adjustment". I have reduced the extension of the "in stop adjustment" and still have the "too large" gap at the top.

I'm reluctant to play with the "vertical height adjustment" as the slide is really well centered in the opening as it is.

Can anyone tell me how to reduce the gap at the top of the slide to increase the pressure on the slide seal at the top?

A followup up with the solution:

I had this posted on rv.net also, and one of the replies led me to the solution that I was over looking.

What I've been missing is that Power Gear technical documents only show the rollers and adjustments that are part of the Power Gear slide mechanisms.

The coach manufacturer also adds rollers. There are Holiday Rambler installed rollers under the inside leading edge of the slide (not all of which can be reached on my MH), and also more Holiday Rambler rollers on the outside edge of the coach that can be reached from the cargo bins (there are 3 of them).

The three in the cargo bins are covered by black plastic boxes. Once I removed those boxes, I found the adjustments I needed.

I'm glad you were able to adjust your slide. I have had mine to two dealers and shelled out $400 and it was still crap. I laid inside the bay looking at the instructions I got from PG and got a thorough understanding of how it all works. The black boxes on mine were already gone so it wasn't hard for me to find those adjustments.
