Slide Height Adjustment

I have a 2006 Executive and looking at the paint match lines itís clear that some of my slides could use some adjustment. I have four HWH slides that are hydraulic except the bed slide which is electric. Can anyone point me in the right direction for the slide height rollers? I am not referring to the ones under the kitchen cabinets. I am looking to adjust the ones that establish the overall height.

Thank you!

Sorry I don't know the answer. Have you looked at HWH's web-site of give them a call?

On our 2006 Camelot there are adjustment screws that jack up the slides. They were covered with undercoating. Look in the front wheel wells. The mismatched paint lines are a warning something is wrong. Check the underside of the slide to see if the floor is collapsing. A common failure on Monaco slides is the bottom side seam of the slide allowing water to soften the floor. Search on Guardian plates if you need a repair. This may all be moot as I have electric slides, though I believe the slide wall issues are across all models of that era.

Thanks Photopilot. I am aware of the potential Monaco slide leak issues and deterioration. Mine are in perfect shape. I was going to reach out to HWH or AZPETE but I figured I would ask here first. Thanks for the reply. I was thinking there must be adjustment on each end. I will search a bit in the area you mention and also in the storage bay ceiling at the end of each slide also

Thanks again for replying

….may not be the same but the HWH cylinder support arms on my 2003 Alpine 40DP main slide have large set screw bolts and locking nuts on the end of the arm to allow some degree of adjustment....my main slide "settled" over the years with no obvious explanation in terms of structural changes....I eventually had to modify [cut and re-weld] the slide frame brackets to achieve more adjustment.....good luck

I have at least 1 slide roller that is accessed through the wheel well. There is a heavy plastic sheet that is on the ceiling of the wheel well that is held there with screws. For me, it would be easier to adjust if the tire/wheel was taken off.

On our kitchen slide, there are 4 rollers. The first from the outside in the wheel well covered by a plastic box. The second is in the first bay above the fuel tank and easily accessible. The third and fourth are accessible from inside. The 3rd is under the first forward drawer of the kitchen cabinets. The drawer needs to be removed and you can access the roller. Our drawer is nearly 4' long there. The 4th roller is at the rear of the slide under the floor of a pot and pan storage area with a pullout. the pullout and floor must be removed.
A suggestion, lift the slide with a floor jack from the outside before adjusting the rollers, as they are not designed to lift that weight, just roll. When doing ours, I put the slide out at ride height and then in about 2" and lifted gently with a floor jack and 2x10 to take the weight off and adjust each roller. Hope this may help. Happy Trails Bert

Slide Height Adjustment

Thank you Bert

On the kitchen slide I was aware of the two inside ones under the cabinets but I thought those were for support of the cabinets and that they didnít actually adjust slide height. I sent a PM to AZPETE and he quickly responded that on the X brace slides like that one that there is an adjustment bolt at each X brace for slight adjustment. By his explanation it sounds like the bolt is below the actuator cylinder but Iím not positive yet. I have asked him to clarify itís location. It still would seem that there is a roller at each end near the outside wall like the one you describe is in the wheel well. I will ask him this also.
On the flush floor slide he said there are hex key screws under the slide at the two beams.
I will post the detail of the X brace slide when I hear back from him

Thanks very much for your reply.
