2006 Southwind slide adjustment

When closed, the living room slide is not closing all the way at the bottom, about a half inch difference from the top, and when traveling on my last trip, it was moving out an inch.
I was on some pretty rough roads, so maybe it bounced out of adjustment? I don't think I hit potholes hard enough to do that though.
I have searched for directions to adjust this with no luck.
Any advice or links to help would really be appreciated.

Probably going to have to open the slide, get a flashlight and peek under the slide behind the rubber seal.

Possibly the slide rides on some channels and is moved on a rack, similar to rank and pinion steering.

Maybe it's skipped a tooth or 2 and is out of sync????

please report back with your results

slide adjustment

This bolt needed adjusted, hoping this resolves the problem.
The tracking rails on both ends looked good.
I'll see what happens next time I take it out.
