Slide out doesnt seem to move far enough?

Our 2002 Damon Intruder's main slide out does not seem to extend far enough. It is a flush floor model HWH. I've read every post I can find on here but nothing seems to quite match my problem. From outside the coach with the slide fully extended, I can clearly see that the 3 rollers it rides on are not quite to the flat area they are supposed to sit on (they're still slightly on the "hill" portion of the track) and so the floor inside is actually up about half an inch, rather than being flush. The slide seal also has about a half inch gap at the bottom on both sides when the slide moves out as far as it can go, but seems to be tight at the top. The rails seem to be in time and the slide is extended the same distance on both sides, so it doesn't seem to be crooked like that.

This is my first ever slide problem, so I'm a little afraid of this thing. It doesn't seal well, and doesn't lay flush like it should. Any suggestions out there?

I am having a similar situation with mine, but haven't had the time to figure it out yet. I thought something was stuck underneath the slide and the floor but havent found anything there.

Is the top of the slide sealing as it should?

If the top is sealing but the bottom is not it sounds like it is out adjustment. The slide should be parallel with side of the motorhome so that it completely seals.

The slide seals at the top when it's open (or it seems to) but not at the bottom where there is about a 1/2" gap. When the slide is closed, it seals at the bottom, but seems to have a small gap at the top. I know that it is not perfectly parallel with the side of the coach when it's fully open. The really odd thing is that when the slide is open, the area on the inside that should drop flush into the floor has a gap on both ends, but is much closer to flush in the middle of the slide out. I'm wondering if I should just take it to a service center and have them look at it, but I'm pretty distrustful of them.

There is an adjustment procedure for the mechanism that's under the slide... each manufacture of slide is just a little different but when the hydraulics push the slide out.. the wall should be parallel to the coach.. sounds like yours needs to be adjusted...

Refer to the manufacturers web site and I'm sure you'll find it...

So it turns out it wasn't going out far enough. I took your advice an found a manual for it. There is a simple screw that adjusts the travel that was WAY too far in. A little trial and error, and my slide now comes out all the way and the floor is pretty darn flush!!!
