slideout adjustments

I have a 2005 Gulfstream independence I have problem with bedroom slide out on one side there is only a little bit of clearance and other side I can shove at least two fingers between side of slide out and frame causing a loud noise when slide out moves in and out. The side with more clearance the rubber seal just barely seals the opening when slide out is out so far it doesn't leak. Question is there any adjustments I can make to shift slide out so clearance equal on both sides.
Any input greatly appreciated.
Joe

If yours is like mine you would have to unbolt the Motor gear Track assembly and move the whole slide over to center it and then run the screws back in New Holes.

The Unit just rides on rollers so the track is responsible for position.

I think Gulfstream uses Lippert slide, if so this may help.

Thought I would update my question on slide out adjustment. I managed
to centre my slide out by removing the screws that secure the sliding mechanism to the floor and with the aid of a block of wood and a hammer and some pounding the slide out move to the centre replaced the screws and now slide out moves smoothly.I did this adjustment with slide out halfway out. my slide outs are hydraulic and runs off the same pump as the leveling jacks (Equal leveling systems)
Thanks for all help Joe
