2000 National Sea View: The slide is tearing up the carpet under the table and hitting the aluminum strip that holds the carpet down. Does anyone have hands-on adjustment experience for this slide, I would appreciate information. For instance, does the slide need to be out for adjustments? I can't see any way to make adjustments with the slide in.

Thank you.

Larry

Larry, there are a lot of slide room mechanisms and so what is hard is to discribe what youhave to do and not seeing it. THe room will have to be out to make adjustments. If you want the floor to be higher you will need to lower the outside wall. I would recommend you first make sure everything is intact under the floor of the slide. Get a couple of 2x4 wedges (rip a board diagonally) and use those to drive the room up about 1.5" bu putting them on the floor and brining the room in on them. Be carefull not to go too high but this will allow you to look under the floor. Check to be sure all rollers are in place if you have them or for any debris that may be under the slide. If all looks well then you may need to make adjustments. Good luck and keep us posted.

Mike, Thanks for the advice. I always carry several 2X4 wood wedges with me for leveling stoves, BBQ and Satellite dish. I had intended to use something like a crowbar, but think the wedges will work better. The slide is out only about two inches, but it caught the carpet and is ripping it back.
This has nothing to do with the slide adjustment, but on our last trip, three teeth broke off the large gear in the slide gearbox. This afternoon I picked up a new gear that I had made for it for $100.00. It sure beats the $800 plus that Power Gear wants for their replacement. I will install the gear in the morning; then try the wedges and will let you know what happens. Thanks again.
Best regards.
Larry

Larry,
I have a 2000 Cruise Master, with a single slide. Mine was also dragging on the carpet. I took to a shop to see about adjusting the slide. What they found was, the rollers that slide rides on, was causing the bottom of the slide to dig into the framing. Only where the rollers made contact, (just wear and tear). What I had done, was to have them cut out of either 1/4 or 3/8 aliumn stock, and attach it to the slide, (after lifting the slide up enough to put this metal between the rollers and the room). This brought my slide out back up, and I have not had anymore problems.

Slide you room out like normal, look under the room to see if you see denting where your roller make contact. If you do, then you may want to have a shop do the same for you.
