Slide-out fascia bending

Both of my slide-outs have the fascia trim bending out. Today, the DW and I went up to CW for a switch and met a nice couple with a new Forester 2861DS. We had a nice chat and I could see that their slide fascia was flat and not bowing out like mine. Ours has always been like that since day one. I think the slide-out stops are not set correctly and caused over extension thus bending the fascia.
I know that some of you out there have had to pull off the fascia to do repairs. I have tried to straighten them back but it appears everything is stapled to plywood strips. Is the fascia's outer layer staple to plywood that is staple to the slide some how? How did you remove and reapply the fascia and with what?

Look for wire extending from under the couch or dinette on which the fascia may be catching. I had to move some and have fascia re-stapled by dealer

My dealer adjusted the stops preventing over the extension of the slide and solved the bending fascia issue. Thanks Simi RV
