2016 Keystone Cougar 28RKS dining slide out question

Hi, I'm new to this site. I have a question about my dining slide out. I was wondering if it is supposed to have a slight downward angle when pushed out. It's noticeable when I look at the dining table and see that it's clearly not level. Is this normal? My parents just got their Fifth Wheel and their slide outs aren't level either, but they appear to be straight much more level than mine. Any advice on these slide outs would be much appreciated. Thank you.

First Question is it sealing at the top and bottom of slide at the seals inside? After you have leveled the trailer, have you taken a level and placed it on the floor to see if it level? Why I'm asking is the cheap tables a lot of manufacturers are putting in rigs mid to lower priced trailers maybe not level. First check if the slide itself is level, then go from there.

It appears that the seals are fine, but I did not take a level to the ground, I did take a level to the outside of the slide. I will try the ground though. The table they have in this trailer is a pedestal table, and we are actually purchasing a different base for the table because we don't like the base it currently is using. I will check the leveling and then reply back, thanks so much for the help.

It is not the table it is the workers not shimming them level.

Most important on slides is that it seals around the edges when open and then again when closed. Slide floor should be level as stated above, but if it doesn't seal when fully retracted or fully extended, you will have a leak.

I had to adjust a slide on our 2016 Cougar,,, then again under warrenty work.. It was rubbing the floor furnace vent...
Have the dealer do it,,, OR if you don't trust them, do it yourself... A little bit at a time !!! Like said above, if it works good and both top and bottom's seal up good open and closed, Don't mess with it !!!
