I know it's not WH related but we mostly all have a slide or 3.
Mine obviously has been out of adjustment since it was new but I did'nt notice it and it worked and still does work OK.
One side comes out a 1/2" to 3/4" or so further than the other. Same , on the inside. One side squishes the gasket and the other barely touches. No water leaks but it would seal better if correct.
The problem I have discovered is the the rack & pinion are 1 tooth out of sync. I have tried loosening some bolts and jacking the room up to try to disengage the gear, then prying the room out on one side to even it out but I did'nt have any luck.
Has anyone had a problem like this and what , if any thing did you do about it.
I wish I had noticed this when it was under warranty.
I tried asking this on the Damon forum but no one had any experience with that kind of misadjustment.

Surely Brazels, Dale or somebdy has heard of this kinds of error. It looks like it would be easy enough for them to slide the slide room in, just slightly catywompous, and get the pinion gear engaged at one tooth off, at the factory. When I get the room jacked up (to clear the gear) I wonder how to get the room to go in one gear tooth? Maybe about 6 big men pushing.

The web sites of Power Gear and HWH have the manuals or support info that may tell you how to adjust the mechanism. Of course if it was installed wrong, then you may have to resort to brute force.

I had the same problem with my Power Gear slide mechanism. The maual included a Trouble Shooting instruction sheet for synchonizing the slides. It involved pulling the keeper pin on on end and disengaging the gear. Then move the slide however many teeth were involved and reinserting the pin. It worked.
