Leveling a slideout

I'm new to this forum and new to RVing, I just acquired a 2004 Beaver, with issues.
One issues of many, my passenger slid appears to be to low. Why do I think this? Because of it making contact with the storage door below it. Just enough to scrap the paint off the edge of the storage door. Looking at the slide it appears to be lower on one side than the other. This is only on one side, passenger side. It appears to me that if I could adjust the slid up the slide would no longer scrap on the storage door.
Can anyone tell me if there is an adjustment?
Thanks for reading my questions.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! Keep her between the ditches!

Your problem may not be the slideout but the storage bay door. Most doors have an adjustment to determine how high they open. Check that out!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Slide adjustments can be very serious. We attended a rally where the manufacturer brought a team of techs to do free repairs on our RVs. They would not do a slide adjustment. They said if something went wrong, they did not have all the necessary heavy equipment to fix it...must be adjusted at the factory.

There is an adjustment for the passenger front slide. With the slide open, look underneath and you will find the nuts and bolts for the adjustment. There are 2 sets, one toward the front and one toward the rear. The adjustment is easy if you take the weight off of the bolts with boards and a small hydraulic jack. Before adjusting, with the slide closed, observe how the paint lines match up where the slide meets the side of the coach, that will give you an idea of how far out of adjustment you are. Also, check the level of the coach, it can cause the slide to drop. There is a seal under the slide that is riveted to the frame, if you adjust too far this seal will leave a gap and you will get cold air or critters.

The doors on your model are not adjustable. Mine drags sometimes if the coach is not level, I just push down on the door while opening it.

I would suggest you join the Beaver Ambassador Club. They will be familiar with most of your issues. BAC Forum - Index
