TT Slide problem, uneven.

Hey guys

My 2004 wildwood le tt is having a alignment problem with the slide.

I made a vide detailing some pictures of what it's doing.

Basically, when out, the top is uneven from the bottom. It's not sitting flush to the wall.

Someone mentioned it was a alignment problem and to fiddle with the nuts until it's fixed.

Question though. In order to lower the bottom via the up and down nuts, do we put the slide in or out? I would think 2000lb of weight on the nut while trying to lower wouldn't be so good.

Here's the video: https://youtu.be/129MFSfp0EM

Open slide out fully

Craw underneath and look at ALL mounting bolts/adjustment bolts etc.

See if 'evidence' is present indicating where it has moved.


Most likely a Lippert System.........

If you have a Lippert system.... they have some excellent HOW TO videos on their web site.... after a long discussion with a dealer I thought I'd find out what was going on... I found that the tech and service manager really didn't know the correct way to adjust the slides...

I spent maybe 3 hours learning how to do it... and getting it where I wanted... than some new lock nuts... and its been fine for maybe 2 years...

I've had my share of issues in the past... but now seem to have improved the system so it will last a few more years...
