04 American Eagle 42R Slide Adjustment

Hi, Would anybody have the adjustment procedure for the kitchen slide on my 04 AE 42R? I rang Fleetwood but they won't release the information unless you are a dealer. The slide hits at the top before the bottom and is pulling the wall off the kitchen counter by 10mm on closing, creating a gap. I notice it also is marking the tile floor at the rear. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Scott

If it's a Power Gear, go to their website. Then under slides. There is several pdf files on how to adjust slides.
Maybe a mobile rv mechanic can help. Try a reputable rv service, then Fleetwood in IN.

The top normally hits first and then the bottom, but obviously cabinets shouldn't be coming loose. You may just have a cabinet problem, not related to the slide adjustment.

They should be Power Gear slides - they all are in my '04 Tradition.
