Slideout not square after closing

I have a 2007 Southwind and the slide on the drivers side retracts OK at the front but is still out about 3/4 of and inch at the back. What is the best way to fix this problem? To me it looks like I have to put the slide out then unhooked the drive gears the wind in the side that's out to match them? right or wrong?

Yup, easy fix. I changed my broken roll pin, evened up the slides. Took about an hr. Plus the 4 hr drive time for the .75 c pin.........

Mine got out of whack also. Because I could not disengage the drive easily, I simply fully extended the slide, then used a jack and a length of 4x4 to gently raise one end and push it in 1/2 inch over the sprocket. I then lowered it back down and all was right with the world. Might not have been the textbook way but it worked.

Thanks for the info I thought I was on the right track but always nice to have some conformation. Took about 15 min. this morning to set it up. Looks right now when closed.
