Slide Alignment

A fellow RW owner moved into the campground the other way and showed me that one of his slides had moved toward the back of his 2016 RW, making a wider gap at the front. I checked mine, and the same thing happened so that the gasket barely covers the gap. Is this common, and it is something I can fix myself?

Mine have been like that since day #1...

In fact I had the dealer replace one of the wiper seals, while there I asked the service department and they did not think it was an issue at all...

Slide Alignment

One of my slides has done this but it doesn't seem to be a problem on our 36FB. The wiper seal is just barely touching on the front side but the inner seal still keeps the water out.

I need to replace mine so I'm thinking I'll find out if there is one with a wider wiper seal available.

The slides are adjustable but any adjustment should be made in small increments and the the slide has to be moved in and out several times to check the adjustment. It has been a while since I adjusted my kitchen slide but the side to side adjustment is the easiest to make but it will take you some time. If you look at your slide brackets underneath you will see the bolts that are tightened to keep it in place. I believe LCi has instructions on how to make the adjustment. You will need to use a Jack and a 2x4 or 4x4 to brace the horizontal slide frame and to take the weight off of the brackets once the bolts are loosened. Then it's just a matter of pushing on the slide right at the trailer wall to move it in the direction you want it to go. The key to moving it is taking the weight off of the brackets.
