Livingoom/kitchen slide adjustment……

My living room/kitchen slide needs some tweaking. It’s low on the rear end @ kitchen sink, as evidenced by the paint lines. It looks like the bottom nylon “slide” in the channel is a bit worn. I’ll likely pull it out, and put a shim under it. That should help a little bit. The adjustment screw at the end of the rail (“A” in the pic) is maxed out, so nothing to gain there. Is there a little bit of wiggle room in the slots where the “B” bolts are? I’ll try loosening those and put a jack under the slide to gain a little more lift if there’s enough slop.

Just for the record in case anyone else ever wonders…… there is a little bit of wiggle room in that connection. Not much, but enough to make my trim piece no longer drag on the belt line trim. Not enough to line the paint up though.

Had a similar issue with my 2003 [Feb 2002 born on date]....I tried the shim idea but didn't help much. Not for the faint of heart but my solution was to cut and then re-weld the end plate on the arm to the bottom edge of the threaded adjusting block--gained about 1/2 to 3/4 inch--plenty of adjustment to correct/align the paint stripes. Still can't explain where the original drop in slide alignment came from but it never reoccurred.
