I know what you mean about the angle of the outside wall but mine is not level on the coach side. The window to the inside (coach) wall is out of level. Also the trim on the inside of the coach around the slide has a large space on the top and the bottom part of the trim is tight. I have emailed Lippert, but have not received a reply yet. I may just have to start fussing with it and see if I can figure it out, there has to be some kind of adjustment for this.

When you find out let us know. I would like to know how it's done. So far I know that you have to get at everything by removing a plywood panel under the bed. I haven't gotten too much more into it than that.

Slide Adjustment

I too notice that when retracting the slides the tops generally hit before the bottoms and there is a "jump" for lack of a better word when it seats tight. I've been out in some nasty rainy weather this winter in California and we've been completely dry.

So if it ain't broke don't let NW Jeeper fix it.

I talked to the tech department at Lippert today they were very helpful and they gave me the information on how to adjust the bedroom slide. It sounds simple enough. I will tackle it in the next few days and post the results and before and after pictures as well as info on how the adjustments are made in case anyone else needs to adjust theirs.

Adjusted the bedroom slide today. The slide sits much better now and a lot more level when it's out. The hardest part was getting at everything. Have to remove the plywood cover, etc under the bed, then crawl in there and make the adjustments. They are made by adjusting a bolt on each side. This adjustment only adjusts the vertical alignment (top to bottom) and not the travel in and out, that is done on the hydraulic cylinder. Posted some pictures to show what needs to be adjusted as per instructions from Vance at Lippert.

no need for thanks, thanks to you everyone on this forum instead.
I'm new to rving, just got this motorhome in the late summer of last year, and although not very active on this forum as far as posting, I have been reading it for a while. I have picked up a lot of great info and learned many things. Just glad that I could add something to the info on this forum that maybe someone else can use for a change instead of me.
