Four Winds W31 slide

I did a search and did not find any related topics on this. I have a 2015 w31 Fourwinds class C with a full wall slide. The slide fits tight on each end but bows out about 1/2" in the middle. There doesn't seem to be any adjustment for this. Anyone else have this issue? Was it repaired? How? Thanks for input.

Our Quantum WS31 had a bow like that. As far as I know there isn't any adjustment for it. Ours leaked like sieve when driving in rain. I used some think foam rubber weather stripping on the slide & body of the coach to seal it up. We didn't even attempt fixing it. Traded it in after numerous issues.

We've had ours since new and have never had any problems. I think I'll do what you did and add the additional seal material. Thanks for your input.

No adjustment that I know off for just the center or middle of the slide. If you are concerned enough or are having leaks, you may be able to shim the seal to close the gap at the bow. May be time consuming and take a lot of patience. Basically build a bow into the slide to match the coach. Moving the slide out and using a string line you could detect if the bow is in the slide or the coach wall. Probably doesn't matter which it is, the easiest solution is to shim the slide seal.
