Baystar slideout help

I ran over a curb, and the drivers slide lock engaged, unbeknownst to me. Upon deploying the slide, the drive cog jumped a couple of teeth. Now the front of slide is not flush, and when retracted, the back sticks out a couple of inches. I know about the adjustment using the trans-torque bushing, but i dont have a big enough wrench at the moment. Is there a quick adjustment to loosen the cog on just one side? Also im kinda in the boonies now. is it ok to drive with the slide out of square like that. i only have 60 miles to my next long term stop.

You gotta have a wrench. I doubt the cog wheel jumped any teeth but your bushing probably slipped. I don't see any problem with driving a little with the slide extended a couple inches on one end other than passing cars honking and pointing.

When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.
