I was reading another post and I have the same problem with the bedroom slide cracking the side wall. How do you adjust it? The slide is also not going all the way in. One side is good but he left side is still out about a quarter of a inch and it has cracked the side wall on the left side. There was another couple with a Arctic Fox in Mississippi with the same problem.

I am sure there are different answers to this question based upon the slide system you have. I adjusted mine under the bed where the hydraulic piston is located. There are adjusting nuts on the end of the piston rod that determines how far the slide travels in and out. My system is the hydraulic/electric pump type.

Ours is the gear drive. I have looked at it but can find no adjustments.

Without knowing the make of your slide mechanism all I can offer is this download site where you may find the service instructions for your slide mechanism: aerocoachinc.com

Ray thanks!, It is a Power Gear slide and I looked at what you sent and at the Power Gear site but got no help. At the foot of the bed there are two rollers but can not find what it has at the head of the bed. I am calling Northwood tomorrow.

Trouble found and it not good. I called Northwood and he told me there are two more roller just inside the sidewall. If you take the trim off you can see them. I did and they were ok. The problem is from a waterleak around the molding causing the floor under the roller track to give way. I have made a quick fix so it will now close all the way. It apperars there is about a 12 inch square piece of wood that is bad. I am going to get a piece of 1/8 inch steel to put under the roller guide and this should take care of it. the steel piece is going to be 6'X 1' so this should take care of it if I can get the leak fixed. Well at least now I know a little about how the thing works.
