HELP with Slide Out Adjustment
« on: July 24, 2017, 02:08:35 PM »
My slide out will not retract completely at the top front corner. About 3/4" in still out compared to the bottom corner. All other corners are fully retracted and sealed. I a have a Lippert slide mechanism. I have downloaded the manual an attempted to make adjustments. I am very mechanical and can usually solve problems like this but this one has me stumped.

The slide moves fairly smooth as it is being retracted. With about 3-5" before fully retracted the slide tilts upward slightly before coming to a stop. Attached are pictures starting with the Top Front showing the gap and then the other 3 corners.

Any advice or help is appreciated.

When the slide is, say, a foot from being closed, are the top front and the top back corners the same distance from the wall?  If they are, you might start looking for an obstruction that is keeping the top front corner from closing completely.

The slide tilting up just before it closes completely is normal, at least for my slides.
