New Project

I'm going to attack a new project when the rain stops and weather clears a bit.

I have noticed since I have had the coach that the Stripping on the rear bed slide is about 1/4" lower where it connects with the stripe on the rear cap. So yesterday I got out my trusty Tape measure and started checking the distance between the bottom of the slide and the straight line molding about 3" below it.

BINGO....the 14' slide progressively drops from front to rear and at rear is a bit more than 1/4" lower.

The slide works fine, No binding or sticking, moves smoothly in and out. Seals very good sides top and bottom.
Maybe not a big problem but I can't live with that!!!

I will run the slide out when rain stops and look under there for some type of adjustment. Don't know yet what I'm looking for but I'm sure I will know it when I see it. LOL

Has anyone on here had any experience with adjusting a Slide out??
Is there anything I should be aware of when doing it??
Is there a Procedure??

Thanks for any input !!

Danny

UPDATE

Well the rain stopped and I opened up my Slide out....SURPRISE !!!!
The bottom of the slide is sealed by a solid sheet of metal !! I can't see any of the gears or adjustments. I don't see how I will be able to lube the assembly as I was planning this spring as it looks nothing like I have seen on the You Tube videos.
This project may be above my Pay grade and will need to go to a shop that understands how this works. I just hate to Pay someone to do something I could probably do myself. My retired labor rate is much lower than standard shop rates.
BUT if any of you are familiar with what I'm looking at and can lead me in the right direction I will certainly give it a shot.

Did you look under the slide at the outer edge. Typically, there are vertical bolts that raise and lower slide on the arm. You release the locking nuts, and make small adjustments, checking the alignment.

Don, I did look for anything that could be adjusted but there is nothing. The entire bottom of the slide is a solid sheet of sheet metal. You can see non of the slide drive mechanism. And No adjustment screws at all.

The only thing I can reason is the motor, and drive is under the Bed or floor, It has started raining again and I don't want to put the slide out and get the awning wet before closing it back up. I did lift the bed up but could only see the floor. The mechanism must be under the floor somewhere.
