Slide dropped 1"

I have a 2003 Gulfstream Sun Voyager Model 8368 MXG 37' class A. The front slide seems to have dropped about 1" in the rear. I can tell from the accent stripes. This is with the slide closed. The slide is hydraulic with a guide bar. I just noticed this. I don't want to open it until I get some feedback. Anybody got any ideas? Thanks.

If your slide has a trim piece on each end check to see if it is secure. The trim is known to move sometimes and then makes it look like the slide is out-of-alignment.

Failing that I'd be tempted to extend the slide to look at the floor of the slide for rot and all of the ram bars, gears and housings for breakage. You do risk not being able to retract the slide so proceed carefully.

Let us know what results - we all learn ... thanks

If it's like my hydraulic slides, there are nylon guides/slides/rollers that bear the weigh and can break or dislodge. Probably can't see them with the slide retracted though. If you have room you might crawl around under with a good flashlight and see it you can spot a discrepancy.

Sorry I can't help with the slide problem. Keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
