Slideout problem

The bottom "trim" on the outside (the couple in piece and front corner with screws) seems to be being pushed off when I bring the slideout in. It is an 08 Forest River Lexington. Is the slide out sagging and pushing it off or???? Any fix?

Thanks!

Definitely looks like the bottom is hitting first and binding. When sliding in stop about 6 to 8 inches from the camper and measure the top and bottom rails from the camper. That will tell you how much if any it is tilting.You can go to you manufacturers site and get tech advice on how to adjust.Your unit is not old enough for structural problems unless they were present from the factory. The only thing that could have happened out in the field is if you or the previous owner used stabilizer jacks on the slide and the camper sunk down causing a buckle of the frame.

Thanks trackman. It has just started. We've owned it a year. So something is up.

Checked it and it seems like the bottom is pulling in to far and doesn't stop when it should so it's pulling in harder on bottom. If that makes sense.
