WH Slide out side slide out clearence different.

On my Damon Intruder, the living room slide is to far forward which is damaging the seal, while the aft opening is not sealed. I don't know if this came from the factory this way or if it has moved over time, bolts on slide arms are tight. My question is; has any one had experience with repositioning the slide aft about a half inch and how hard is it to accomplish?

I had the same problem with slides on a 2000 Itasca we had. I opened the slide with the coach out of level from front to back. When it retracted, it had moved to the front too far. Repositioned and leveled the coach and then opened and closed the slide again. Came back to it's original track.
If this does not work, try elevating the front slightly and cycle the slide again. As it comes back, add manual pressure in the direction it needs to return to and it should square up.
Scary, but not a big deal.
A big deal would be a broken cable or broken shear pin, in the rain - by yourself - at night - with a rising river threatening the CG - all with no lights and a dead chassis battery. jk never will happen - all at the same time
