Should tell you how to adjust the slides in your owner's manual. If not, call whoever made the frame/slides.

If all else fails or you don't come up with the right answer call Coachmen Customer Service, they are very helpful. I have talked to them a couple of times and they solved my problem. The only thing I would suggest is do it soon than later, will save you a lot of time and headache.

let me know how it goes with them. the slide on my 06 coachman has been acting up too. I have to help it along with my hand when putting it back in or it will just make that "clicking sound" it does when its all the way in/out. Is there an adjustment I can do for this?
