Need advice again. Slide-out comes in completely at the top but does not retract fully at the bottom, comes in all the way except for about one inch. Is there a way to adjust this or what do you think i can do ? Walter

First, double-check to be sure something is not on the floor under the slide room that won't allow the bottom of the room to close completely. Most common cause is a piece of carpet is torn off the floor and gets stuck under the slide room. Or a kid's or dog's toy sneaks in behind the slide room when it's closed, then when you open the slide the toy falls down to block the slide from closing completely.

You have good voltage and amp draw? Maybe not enough power to get it in that last bit.

Determine the make/model of your slide mechanism. Run an internet search for the service and/or installation manual. I've always found those documents with an internet search.
