Slide Adjustment

I had my 5th wheel ( 2013 Shasta Phoenix 32RE) in for an adjustment to the kitchen slideout. The top seal sweep does not have enough space to travel out with the slide. I am told by my dealer/repair shop that there is no adjustment, either up or down. Is this accurate? ... I am concerned that during a rain I will have a flood inside. Thanks.

Should be easy enough to check for adjustment bolts yourself--have you looked at the slide mechanism?
When you say "not enough space to travel out with the slide" what exactly does that mean--most gaskets/sweeps lean out when coming out and lean in when the slide is going in. If there is good contact across the entire slide top when out, then it should be ok.
This being a '13--have you had it out in a rain event yet?

Thanks Joe ... Yes it has adjustment bolts. Since my previous post I have found several items on line etc. about how to do make adjustments. My concern about the top sweep is that it will not go out when the slide is moved out, which is what it is suppose to do. There is only 1/16 of an inch clearance or less which is not adequate. When I brought up this issue with repair I was told no adjustments could be made up or down on the slide. I guess I was trying to find out if they were blowing me smoke. Our unit is still under warranty and want them to do the work.
