Question Evergreen Bay Hill Slides

I order the Bay Hill 365RL and it was just delivered to the dealer. Went in for the PDI and everything looked great except for 1 item that really confuses me. The bedroom slide is fine. The other 3 slides in the rear of the coach stick out away from the exterior sidewall by about 1" to 1 1/4" at the bottom of the slide. They are tight against the side at the top, but stick out at the bottom of the slide. I traded in a 2005 that was not like this. Question is, are the new slide units designed like this? The dealer said this is normal. Any input is appreciated.

Hard to tell without pictures what you mean "bottom." Bottom below floor level or where is the question.
Most likely it's not normal.

I took delivery on 2/24/14 of a Bay Hill 340RK and noticed the very same thing you have described. The dealer got a service tech to check it out. He found an obstruction on the left side and corrected that. He made an adjustment of a limiting bolt on the right. When all that was done the slide seals were tight and up against the body of the 5ver. However, the skirting below the slide was still up to about 1" "out". He said that was normal. It may be normal but it looks bad. It gives the appearance of the whole slide area is misaligned.

When I bought my Bay Hill 295RL I noticed the same thing. The bedroom slide was flush all the way around but the the other 2 slides had the lower edges of both sides have a gap of about 1.5 inches. I had dealer check it out and I was told it was normal and that the seals were touching the slideout. I've had several other 5ers and had not had that gap. We have driven in the hard pouring Oregon rains with no leaks. You are correct , it does look like its not in all the way.

I would like to know this as well. The fact that it's not in any of the manufacturer's publications, including their website, is concerning.
