Bedroom slide has no acces to rails

My front bedroom slide needs to be adjusted but there is no exposed rails or for that matter, there is no access to any rails or adjustments there of. The only access to anything is just under the back side of the bed mattress there's a small compartment opening which allows access to the, apparently single drive, slide. But there is no other anything and no height or side to side adjustments. Weird. Anyone ever run into this or know how to adjust the slides height?

Assuming this is a 5th wheel? There usually aren't any rams except under the bed. Of the few that I've even needed to mess with, it's only been an in/out adjustment. No height unless you changed bolting places I guess. What makes you think it needs adjusting?

Thank you. Yes, it is a 5th wheel. Between posting the thread and now, I've discovered a few items. One being that, yes, you're correct, there really isn't any adjustment other than in/out limits. So if anything is wrong then it was either damaged somehow or the factory messed up.
The reason I was concerned was because the slides bottom seal is torn and looks like it will continue to do so even if I replace it because the slide looked like its riding to low against that bottom seal. But again, after much research, I now understand how it works and what I'm looking at. I'm currently tracking down the odd seal type that Crossroads used on ONLY this one 71" seal section under the bed slide. The seal that looks like a common single wiper seal but not because it has a section of the mounting base that comes off the mounting area and L's into the trailer and then 90*'s up. The only rubber seal portion is the part that sits back from the trailers outer edge about 1.5". If it was a single wiper seal sitting out on the edge like the rest of the bedroom slide then I could simply get a section and replace it but this looks like its going to be difficult. Here's a picture of the seal after I removed the D outer seal which the slide closes up against.

Only when its fully out, which it is in the picture. When its about half way in/out it sits so low on the seal that it rakes against it. Not in the worst way but over time it obviously caused about 8" to tear off on the far right side. If I use the trailer in the wet with the slide out, it will clearly allow wet weather to enter as I can openly see carpet standing from the outside looking in.

So my problem now is apparently no one knows anything about this type of seal or where I can get it. I may have to fabricate something together out of available seal types.

I'm told that a garage door seal can be used in some instances.
