Wardrobe slide issue

I am having a problem with my slide out in my bedroom for the Wardrobe on my 2003 National Tradewinds Diesel Pusher. It is built on a Spartan Chassis and I am having a problem getting the slide out to go all the way out. It is lacking about 2in to being fully extended and I cannot open the drawers on the side of the bed. I have access to mechanism that drives it but I cannot seem to find any adjustments. I've included a couple of pictures of it because my manuals call for power gear but the only thing I find on this is Imperial linear actuator. So I am asking for your help if anybody is seen one of these if you could instruct me as to how to adjust it. I did find two small hex head bolts for lack of a better term on the side of the motor housing in a little pocket. I've included a picture of them with a picture of the entire unit.

We had an 01 model with the wardrobe slide with the same issue. since that was about 15 or 16 years ago, i can't recall exactly but I seem to recall 2 adjustments at the motor - one for the inner stop and 1 for the outer stop. Your newer model could have a different model actuator, but I seem to recall 2 screws (slot or phillips I don't recall) but they were close together and would correct the issue you are having.

Thumbs up Problem solved

The first picture in my post was the side of the motor for the slide. On the side of the motor were two small hex heads. The one on the left is the "extended adjustment" and the one on the right is the "stored adjustment" I turned the extended counterclockwise about a half turn after I had extended the slide as far as it would go. I then went to the switch and extended it approx an inch more. I did this adjustment till the slide was flush with the seal. Problem solved. Since I could not find any literature regarding the type that I have or the adjjustment, I appreciate the responses from all.
