Slide Adjustments

2000 Monaco Diplomat.
Large slide has kitchen counter, sink, stove, and living room couch. The slide worked fine our entire two month trip, however it has been drooping on the aft side. Got home and yes the roads were rough, the slide hangs up on the aft side now when I try to open. If someone from the outside helps it, it will open. I see two height adjusters in the basement but don’t want to do anything until I get some IRV2 advice.

Check the bottom of the slide itself from the outside, it is a known problem. Water gets in and the slide bottom rots.

If this is the problem it will be evident.

If that's not the problem I'd check the slide support. Not sure what slide you have but on mine there is a roller underneath that supports the whole slide as it comes out.

No rot.

Two slide support rollers. From what I can see, both appear normal.

A factory service manager told me to always return to the factory service center for slide mechanism adjustments as most RV technicians out it the world so seldom work on slide mechanisms they cannot become or remain proficient.

Reading a thread from 12/18 on IRV2,
Sounds like the Monaco factory service centers are questionable at best, one doesnít even work on Roadmaster chassis, not that mine is a chassis issue.
