Slide Racks

Probably a real dumb question....should the racks that the hydraulic operated slides run on be the same measurements...Noticed the distance on the same side is different front to back......just wondering.. Everything seems to be normal or I guess ok...2012 31sl..

I am confused on what you are asking. Are asking if the front portion and the rear portion of your slide go out the same distance?? My answer would be yes it should be square. Front and rear traveling the same.. Yours are not??

There is about a 1/4" difference when u measure from the lip of the slide to the side of the body of the 5th wheel itself....close enough for me...but have a friend that works on these things for a dealer in Tulsa ok. says he will check it out....more later..

There is an adjustable bracket on the end of the passive ram(without the rod). It will allow you to adjust the in and out on that side of the slide. It's somewhat difficult to adjust as you need to loosen the bolt that keeps the bracket in place and then you will have to use a jack to take the pressure off of the bracket by lifting up that end of the slide. The slide should be open when doing this. Once you get the pressure off of the bracket the slide can be pushed in or pulled out as needed. Once adjusted release the jack and tighten the bracket bolt. Lci has instructions on their website. If things are sealing properly, why mess with it? I think mine were off more than 1/4" but they are sealing properly. Remember, when you adjust on the outside, it also affects the inside. Make any adjustment in small increments and check inside and outside. The slide is also adjustable up and down and right and left. There is an adjustment on the active slide by adjusting the nuts attached to the rod. That adjustment will allow you to adjust the entire slides in and out stopping points. I hope I haven't confused you.
