2002 KS back slide rollers ?

How do I raise the small back slide up to check the rollers ? Ours is dragging the bottom inside trim off so I need to see what is going on. You can't see from the outside because there is a cover on it. Thanks Ronnie

Maybe lay a 2x4 on the top of the slide so it hits the sidewall, stops, yet the bottom of the slide continues in and raises up.

If yours is built like mine with the rollers behind the outside trim try this. Put out the slide about 3/4 of the way and then place a 4x4 under the bottom of the slide at the outer edge. Then using a bottle jack or floor jack slowly raise the outside end of the slide. You can not go very high as the slideout will contact the top of the opening and can do damage if lifted too far. This method allowed me to inspect the rollers and lubricate them with spray lub. In the end I placed 1/8" thick aluminum sheet on the bottom of the slide where each roller traveled. Made it as wide as the roller and from behind the roller all the way to the outer edge. This corrected the issue of slide contacting the outer trim as it closed. Have heard of failed rollers or rotting wood under the rollers allowing the slide to drop and contacting the lower opening. Fortunately mine just seemed to settle over the years and the spacer solved the problem.
