Kitchen counter sagging

I have a 2006 Monaco Camelot 40PDQ with 4 slides and the front passengers slide is having an issue where the whole counter is sagging and has as much as a 3/8 inch gap between the counter and the backsplash. This gap varies according to how far the slide has moved in or out. There is a little bit of a scraping noise along the floor when the slide in being extended but I can't see exactly where the drag point is, other than the sound is about midway along the counter. I'm sure the supports holding the counter have loosened over time but I can't see how to get at them. Any ideas?

My guess is that the slide itself is sagging. You'll have to find a way to see under the slide and look for a broken or bent roller or support. My slides have an adkustable pad with a nylon pad on top. I had one of the supports break. Got a local fabrication shop to fix the broken part in one day for $45.

I took a look at the floor plan for your coach and it looks identical to our 06 Diplomat 40 PDQ. If the rollers need adjustment, there are four under the slide with the couch and kitchen cabinet. Two are under the couch and two under the cabinet. The roller adjustment screws under the cabinet are accessible if you remove drawers and the louvers from under the sink. The rollers under the couch can be accessed from the compartments below the slide.

We had the lock nut come loose and had to adjust ours then re-tighten the lock nut. It doesn't take very much adjustment.

Best of luck!

Kitchen counter sagging

Thank you for the many suggestions. I don't think the slide itself is out of alignment. It looks very straight and everything is tight and nothing looks worn. I didn't know the counter was mounted on rollers and that is probably what is making the scraping noise when the slide is opened and closed. How do I access the rollers? Do I remove the floor of one or more of the cupboards which are covered in carpeting inside? Each cupboard at floor level appears to have a separate cover.

We had to remove the floor of one section of the cabinet to get to the roller. I found some broken glass down there making a scraping noise. Got to part of it ftom the outside, pulled the weatherstrip back and found some there.

My previous coach was a 2006 Camelot 38 PDQ and I had the same problem. What I found was the screws supporting the cabinet to aluminum structure were broken off. These screws are hidden behind some wood trim at the bottom of the cabinet.

If this is your problem, make sure you lift up the cabinet before replacing the screws. Lift from the bottom and not by lifting the counter top. The countertop mounting can come apart and break the countertop. I learned the hard way.
