Driver's side slide

I have a Georgie Boy 2004 Pursuit and the drivers side slide, when retracted is about 1 1/2 inches above the floor when fully retracted. I am wondering if there should be some type of a block under this to relieve the strain on the gear train. I was on a very rough road on our last trip (CA highways are going to the dogs) and the the bolt that acts as a drive pin between the motor and the slide gear sheared allowing the slide to move out at the bottom and settle to the floor.

Not seeing you have an issue most have space on the leading edge of the floor when retracted, shear pins and bolts break all the time, replacing a bolt or shear pin is better than a gear box, just carry an extra on board. The reason for the gap is when the slide is retracted the top hits first then the bottom comes in a bit more, this allows the top to seal better in turn causing the floor to raise up, if your really worried about it use slide locks or a couple blocks under the slide to hold it in transit.
