My front slide seems to be closing harder on the top corner behind driver. The rear of the slide closes about the same from top to bottom, but behind the driver it has a gap at the bottom and at the top the seal is completely hid from sight and is meeting the sidewall hard enough to cause a small ripple in the wall material . The slide arms have an inner adjust behind the gear that drives the slide and another at outside end of arm. If you where to adjust down on the inner and up on the outer I would think the slide would rotate enough to close better. Has anyone adjusted their slide or know the proper procedure to do so. Any help appreciated

When you open the slide does it seat against the inside wall flush? I have found if you make sure your coach is level with jacks down and run slide in and out a few times the slide will track to correct the slide that is offset and reseat square into the side wall recess. Just check the rollers under slide to make sure they are attached to the roller brakets on both ends of roller. If roller looks different than others may have a cracked roller that is not tracking correctly. You can step down in step well to observe rollers.

Had ours at the dealer yesterday. Somewhat the same issue. Bottom of slide is snug, top has a gap. Service manager says they can adjust the slide. Back to have it done in July. Hope they get it squared up.

oo7, When slide is closed it seats just fine on the outside but when I open it its not flush to wall on the inside behind drivers seat. The other end where your table and chairs are is flush. Almost like the box is twisted. jacks are down and coach level.

Are your locking bars folding into space between wall of slide and exterior wall not getting hung up on part of the exterior wall. Thats if you have locking bars. If you have a bar remove it and see if the slide facia is flush to the wall behind drivers seat. Still run in and out a few times. Make sure the foam strips are not getting in way of wall space. The foam protects the screw points from cutting your hand.

007, The locking mechanism isn't interfering. If it were then it would keep the slide from closing tight to the wall. The interior side edge of slide has the wood facia mounted on the front with a foam strip that meets the wall on the back. Thats where its meeting the wall too hard. I don't see how anything could be getting in the way or it wouldn't be closing as tight. I'm more concerned about the pressure of slide hitting in one spot. It's been this way for a while. Newmarw dealer is aware ot it but doesn't seem concerned. It wasn't like this when we first purchased it.
