How To Center Slide

I have an 07 Presidio 39D built by Mandalay (Thor). The front slide on the curb side is not centered. It actually was scraping on the rear side causing me to remove the wiper. I don't see a way to center it. Does anyone know how it is done?

I recently read a monaco thing for a full wall slide that said:

Crank it out and hold the out biutton down for 2p seconds after it stops.

Wait 2 minutes to. Let things cool down.

Bring it in, and hold the button down for 20 seconds after it stops.

Eddie--you might get more responses if you post your question on the Thor Owners section of the board. Good luck.

Have you tried calling the factory and asking them? The slide must have some way of adjusting it. It will probably be very obvious, after someone points it out....

From the recent reports about Thor's poor quality, it sounds like you would be better off to jack up the radiator cap and drive another motor home under it.

Are your slides, hydraulic or mechanical. There is bound to be a way to adjust the tracks or guide tubes.

Is it off center when extended or retracted or both.

I think I would take it to the "Pros". If the slides are hydraulic by HWH and your anywhere near Moscow, Iowa, take it to them.

You are probably the funniest person you know. Thanks for nothing.

It is not an HWH system. Made by Equalizer.

Hydraulic by equalizer. Off center always. Has guides on bottom but I see no adjustment.
