Slide Out Alignment

I have a brand new 2010 Excel RSO35 and two of the slide outs do not return into the closed position evenly. Each time we close them up, it's a bit more noticeable.
The question is, is this normal with new Excels? I would imagine it's a warranty issue. If there is not an Excel dealer within easy reach, how do I get approval to get a non-excel dealer to make the repairs?

Ditto what Still said! You may need to be a bit more specific.......when you say close evenly. It is binding or one end closes to the body faster. Knowing that helps a bit on diagnoses. A picture of what you are describing would help too. Which two slide? Where did you pick up your new unit?

Welcome aboard. We look forward to having you in here to discuss our adventures in an Excel. rockin'

We've had to have ours adjusted and it's not a big deal. Talk with Jack, but if you need warranty approval, you may be better off talking to Curtis at Excel. I've already let a towel get twisted under the floor of the dining room slide (since they were adjusted) and it needs to be adjusted, again. I'm going to pay attention this time around (towel and how they adjusted the slide) - betting I could adjust it myself if I have the right wrenches. David
