Tilting slide

Hello everyone! We recently purchased a 2008 Gulfstream Gulfbreeze and part of the original deal was to replace the seals on the large slide as they were damaged. We took it insist week after waiting 8 weeks for them to arrive and of course they were the wrong ones. We had a trip planned so they allowed us to pick it up and take it out for the trip. When I picked it up one of the cables was frayed really badly. I said something and they told me they would replace it free of charge when the new seals came in. So on our trip I noticed our large slide was tilted more than usual. The top is tipped forward about 6 more inches than the bottom. Has anyone seen this? Any idea what would cause this? The dealership is looking at it this week but my own curiosity is killing me

Sounds like cables might be stretched or had been "adjusted" before.
But with your description, it might be normal. Idk what you mean by "tipped" forward.

I HATE cables btw.

It could definitely be the cables then since the one is frayed pretty bad. The top is out quite a bit further than the bottom so when you look at it from the front of the camper it looks like the top is tipping away from the camper and the bottom is not out enough. Thanks for the reply. Still haven't heard from the dealer yet.

Some tip out like that.
Measurements have to be taken to see if the inside is uneven like that too.

Well it is finally fixed. I had to take it back three times before they had it right. The first thing they did was forget to put the in inner seals back on! It still has a tilt but I've come to believe that is typical for that slide. I guess better to have the top tip away so the rain falls away from the body!
