Slide Adjustment - looking for advice

During our last two trips I noticed a loud creaking sound when we drove over severely uneven roads. Upon inspection I noticed no gap/space between the slide and the coach body on the living room passenger slide. It looks like it is rubbing in the forward bottom corner. The rest of the slide bottom and sides have an even gap/space. The other three slides all have even gaps. Can you tell me how I adjust the slide up on that corner?

Much appreciated!

Well, I can tell you what I did. With the slide retracted, inside the coach, I put a jack underneath the slide to take the weight. I then removed six screws that attach the X-frame slide to the wall. Using the jack I adjusted the height of the slide to create the desired gap. I then drilled new holes in the X-frame slide mechanism near the old screw holes. I then re-used the self-tapping screws that I previously removed to reattach the slide mechanism to the wall. I now have a very nice gap like it was or should have been.

My coach is a 2006. There is wood molding in the front of the wall. I assume the x-frame is inside that?

I too have wood molding on the front, but I have a folding curtain on the side of my slide. The curtain is removed with a few screws along the wall side and exposes the X-frame slide mechanism. I have no idea of the type of slide on your coach. I did not have to disturb any wood trim.

I have X slides and do not have to adjust them to get the bottom margin correct, make sure you don't have adjusters that lift the bottom of the slides. All 3 of my slides do.

Here are some pictures of the slide height adjusters, drivers side has rollers and passenger slide has a UHMW center adjuster.
I also modded the drivers slide adjusters as the engineering was OK but the fabrication was poor. I added a 1/2" plate to the top and used a longer adjustment bolt.
I jacked up the passenger slide and removed the hat piece they fabricated and rewelded it properly so it wouldn't snap again.

Nice work

Always good to make things better than original

Morning,
In my 2006 Intrigue, my HWH components are only adjustable for tilt, to help in sealing the slide to the body of the coach. It does not adjust any other way. My slide, when extended, drops to the main floor level. This done by UHMW plastic box guides. These wear over time and can be shimmed or replaced depending on wear. HWH carries these guides. So, if you have this configuration and your coach graphics do not align, you may want to look into this.

The process:
1. Measure paint gap, slide to coach to determine shim thickness.
2. Level, extend slide 1/2 to 3/4.
3. Dump air and shut down.
4. Using a floor jack, 4X4 post and a 2/4 "T", raise the slide corner enough to reach the guide. It doesn't take much.
5. use 3/8" socket remove lag bolts and part.
6. Shim or replace.
7. Reverse order.

I have not done this yet. I will in the next 4 weeks. I'll take pics and post.

Credit goes to Doug at Premier RV for the process and Randy at HWH for the information on their components.

Bill.
