Slide outs stick at top

This evening I visited a friend who bought a 2006 Fleetwood Terry Quantum Bay AX6 with 4 slides. Every slide sticks at the top, and all need a push at the top to slide out. Most need a little help sliding in too. What adjustment do we need to try? Lowering the outside wall a bit? Odd part is that all 4 slide-outs act the same.

I needed to adjust 2 of 3 slides down on my (new-to me) 2014 Cedar Creek. While the slides did not "stick", The eternabond tape covering the screw heads at the flange wore through creating a potential water leak. I ended up dropping the slides about 3/8" each and resealed the flange area to fix the problem.

Wow ! Just the thread that I need. The HWH powered hydraulic bedroom slide on my coach has been too tight at the top for a long time. It drags and sometimes won't go all of the way in. I'll bet if the slide could be lowered 1/8 in. I would be all set. I always have the jacks down, and the coach level when the slides are out. I keep the slide seals lubricated, and the cover keeps the top of the slide clean. How does one lower this thing just a tad ?

Not sure if this applies to your slide, but it did with mine:

Fantastic video. I agree. These slides are very simple, once you get past the I can't do this fears. I have the EXACT mechanism, in fact the exact wood trim and wall paper border in ours. One time, the wife left something in the way of the slide and it hung on it on one side and instead of stopping, she just pressed the button down harder. That brought me to one more adjustment that you didn't talk about. There are gears and tracks on both sides but a motor on just one side. The two sides of gears are connected with a square tube as a driveshaft between. Each end has a bolt. She sheared one of these bolts. But, a bolt on just one side can be removed and by turning the square with a wrench, and measuring, you can quickly adjust the slide from one side to another. This might have been easier to do than what was shown in the video. really like seconds to remove the bolt, then make a small turn then put the bolt back. Of course on our, it was replace the bolt once aligned, but that was easy too.

Oh. If you replace that bolt, replace it with a very cheapo china bolt that will break easy. Better to do that than tear out some gears if something gets in the way. No dear, I'm not talking about you.
