Bottom of slides not snug to rig when closed.

I have a 2011 Tiffin Allegro using electric schwintek motors to move the slides.
The bottom of two slides there is enough room to slide my fingers between the slide and rig when closed fully. All other sides are really snug like they are supposed to be. Looking for solutions or ideas.
Thanks, Chris.

It sounds like your slides need to be adjusted. You might call Tiffin and ask how to do it.

If you do not get an answer check the FMCA site. I always find I get technical and accurate responses there. I use FMCA any time I have a question about my coach.

To sinc the schwintech motors, extend the slid and hold button for an additional 5 to 10 seconds, then retract slid and do the same by holding the button in for the 5 to ten seconds. This will sinc the motors. Fixed our problem on our 2015 Jayco Precept.

It is not a motor sync issue becasue the right and left sides are the same.
You need to adjust the rollers by raising the inside rollers. This will tilt the top of the slideout AWAY from the body and fix your alignment problem.

UNLESS something happened (unlikely on two slides) where the lower track skipped a tooth.
