Slides move up and down, tilt slightly , Normal?

All 4 of my slides also have some motion up and down and the big slides seem to tilt slightly when they come to the end of travel. Is this normal?

Some slides go straight in&out, others seem to flop around quite a bit during their extension or extraction, especially at the end of travel. You have an 07, and if all the slides work, thatís most likely the way they have always worked. It just depends on the design of the slide mechanism.

Our main slide raises up a bit as it gets almost all the way in!

Our main slide travels out at a slight angle and drops down so that the floor in the slide is almost level with the main floor. It lifts to travel in and has rollers so as not to scrape on the main floor as it travels.
Our bedroom slide travels straight in and out above the floor.

Mine lift or drop at the start or finish but the rides in and out are steady.

It's normal for a "flush floor" rack & pinion slide that drops down at the outward end to make the floor level even. They tilt and wobble a bit because of the type of mechanism. Raised floor slides generally don't do that.
