What to do with curved slide flange?

The top flange of my bedroom slide is about 1/4" farther from the wall than the ends. A straight edge held against the flange shows that it is curved, not the wall. I can't figure out whether it is better to try to straighten the flange, shim it to parallel, or something else. Any thoughts or pointers?

Do you have a water leak , when traveling ?

If you don't, then attempting to straighten things out may be counter productive.

I had a problem on the bottom of the slide. My wife caught a post pulling out from a filling station. Damaged 3 doors and caught the bottom of the slide trim out about 3 inches.

I tried using a heavy piece of angle and combination of C-Clamps and wood clamps. Also used large pipe wrenches with the trim sandwiched between wood to protect it and pulling, lifting, pushed to try and get the trim straight. Got about 80% of the bend out, ultimately resorted to drilling and riveting the unseen portion of the trim from underneath to the slide support. Got about 95% of the curve out. Sanded off the filler that was applied when the slide was constructed and added bondo and sanded flat. I've showed this repair to several people and they can't see any damage so I guess it's good enough.

I doubt you will be able to straighten yours. If it isn't leaking I would hesitate to do anything that would damage the seal.
