Rear slide on passenger side

I have talked so several people about the rear slide on PS. Almost all say it goes out more at the bottom faster than at the top. Mine also works like that, I have to give it a little push at top to help it go out. Is there a way to install a extra roller to make it go out without binding. If there is where will I put it? Thanks

I tend to give mine a little Push on the top, just to keep it level. Think it has more to do with just play at the Attachment point, not that more rollers are needed, JMHO.

Still seals tight both in and Out.

That's how mine works,

Yeah.. Could still be a heart stopper for some folks who are outside watching the slide tip in and out.... I have always suspected that the heavy CRT type TV (Original) mounted so high had something to do with it.. Would like to get rid of that set and use something more modern but really don't have the carpentry skills to do it...

Mine is a 2006 envoy TS and the rear slide out passanger side does not go all the way out. THe awning is not tight and the bottom of the slide out is all the way in . THe top needs another 2 incehes to be against the wall. Ideas???

Ron,
The CRT may contribute but getting rid of it didn't fix mine. I still have to give the top a shove to keep it level going out!

Check for excessive dirt, leaves, pine needles, etc. on top of the slide out(s). Be sure to lube all of your slide gaskets. The top is usually neglected because it is difficult to do without removing the awning fabric. The top is the mostly susceptible to dirt build up due to its horizontal surface. Some birds find this an ideal nesting site on long stays. A Long handled mop, pressure washer with extended length. Clean it dry it, spray some 303 on it (liberally) near the gasket [[ https://www.amazon.com/303-30313-CSR...&dpSrc=srchand ]] run it in and out a few times. Do the same with the sides and bottom. Resistance/drag could be the problem. 12 yrs. could equal much buildup on the slide roof and its associated gasket. Also don't forget that the gasket could be "rolling" and causing a bind, usually the result of excessive drag on the gasket. Don't forget to clean and use a good wax on the outside slide walls.

Just a follow up, I took the old tube type TV out, it weights a ton, like 100 lbs or so. The slide now works good, it does go out at bottom faster than the top, but when its 1/2 way out it seems to catch up and works fine. I am going to take the topper off over the slide and see how it works. It seem to be a little tight, may need to be cleaned.
