bed slide cables adjustment

I've got a '14 390fl and have a lot of slack in the bed slide cables. Last time bringing it in, it's starting to sound a bit noisy. Anyone know how the tighten these? The area above the bed is wood trim. Thanks.


Rich

You have to remove the wood trim board. There are screws under the little plastic screw covers. You may have other problems going on though. Are the cables loose on just one side, inside, or outside? Hopefully it's just an adjustment.

All four cables are loose. Adjust from top?

Rich, I guess you know that you're supposed to be just a little slack in the cables?

My cables, and all the ones I've seen, have been tight in both directions.

Yes, the adjustment turnbuckles are above and behind the trim

Just adjusted the cables. Hope I did it right. On my model (390fl) the bed must be lifted, slide extended and they are below the bed back against the wall.
