my rr slide is out of adjustment, when extended the front meets the wall but the rear lacks about 2-3 inches. Is it possible to jack up one side and let it skip a few teeth or do you have to disconnect the shaft from the slide gearbox? Of course its the one above the rear wheels where its hard to get to.

If the slide mechanism uses a rack and pinion gear on a shaft to drive the slide in and out, there should be a slip joint on the drive shaft somewhere between the gears. Loosen the bolts on the slip joint and adjust the slide timing with a couple of large crescent wrenches then re-tighten. It doesn't take much adjustment to make the slide land correctly.

However, that is also assuming that both gears are driving the slide in and out. We had the shaft break on one of the pinion gears and the slide still went in and out but the timing was off so there was a substantial gap on one side where it didn't land correctly.
