Slide not even or balanced... ADJUSTABLE?

My Bounder 35K's full wall slide does not come in evenly. The side towards the driver is even with the outside wall, but the side towards the rear is out about a half inch. This is new. It happened when the slide jammed last year but eventually came in ok. One result of this is that one of compartment doors is now crooked. CAN A SLIDE BE BALANCED OR LEVELED TO COME IN EASILY, IS THER AN ADJUSTMENT?

My front pass. Slide is about 1/2" from back to front is off too. That little was not adjustable I tried.

what year Bounder? They changed the slideout system between 2015 and 2016. The 2016 is adjustable electronically. This thread has the information posted on how I fixed the issue I had with my 2016.

My 2006 35e has electric motor driven rack and pinion gears. You can pull a hairpin clip from one end to disconnect and move the pinion gear away from the rack, then release the motor brake with the lever on the end of the motor. The drive shaft is square and you can use a wrench on that to bring both ends into alignment.
