The sevice center taughts me to run the slides in all the way.... then out just a few inches....then back in. After doing this a few times, the system was as good as new.
Same for us, after spraying the tracks with the teflon lubricant and running the slide in/out a couple of times...problem is gone!!!

After further investigation I find that both upper corners of the slide are closing correctly along with the lower right corner. There is a 3-4inch gap in the lower left corner. It almost looks like the mechanism has skipped a few teeth on that bar. Can that happen?
I recently added the 'H' bar in that same corner due to a small crack that several other RL owners have experienced. Is that repair related to the slide not closing properly?

I don't think the cracks are related to the slide. I don't know about skipping teeth but I think I would run it in and out several time and see if it corrects itself.

Our slides have been working, but I would like to know why we are gettin wood shavings that look like saw dust every time we take them in and out! I find it in the area by the refrigerator and by the bedroom slide near the bathroom.

Run your slide out about 2-3" & back in(continue holding switch for several seconds), do this 3-5 times & should square it up, worked for me.
As for the sawdust, there was apparently no clean up during construction, sawdust,cutouts, screws, wire pieces can be found in every nook & cranny you open up, if you don't clean it up it will eventually quit falling out.

I get the sawdust - it blows in from the return air vents while traveling. I took down the basement wall and got in there with a vacuum and just about got it all gone now.

Thank you! I was worried that something was rubbing and wearing down the wood on the slide as they went in and out.

Thanks to all for the feedback! I've tried everything that you've suggested but the lower right corner is still not closing correctly. Looks like a trip to the local RV expert is in order. It's quite a coincidence that the problem is in the same corner that the 'H' clip was just installed a few weeks ago. Is anyone familiar with that process? Do they have to derail the slide to do that work?

It does sound like something is holding up the one corner. I'm not familiar with the H clip install. Here is the alignment video from Lippert just in case you need it.
