Adjusting Bedroom Slide on '03 Dolphin

When I close the bedroom slide, I hear a "popping" sound from outside. The problem appears to be the outside frame of the slide sits too low and catches the frame on the motorhome wall just as it closes. In other words, it appears to me the entire slide has to be adjusted up (lifted) to clear the frame on the motorhome wall.

It seems the way to do this is shim up the nylon block that the slide slides on, but I can't see anyway to do this as the screws holding down the block are partially under the steel bed frame and are not accessible. They were obviously installed prior to inserting the slide. Am I missing something?

Has anyone else had this problem? And what did you do to fix it?

Any help anyone can give would certainly be appreciated! Thanks.

Welcome Dolphin Del to irv2.
If you can't shim the floor slide board how about the slide board attached to the bed frame. Just a thought.
