my slides dont sit flush on the inside

I am not sure if I have a problem or not? my 2011 Georgetown 360ds some one was on My coach and noticed that both slides don't sit flush against the inside walls. Can they be adjusted to sit flush?

I have the same issue on my 2013 Georgetown 378. The slides were not adjusted correctly from the factory. They do not sit flush when in or out. I noticed the hydraulic slides were no properly adjusted. I have contacted my dealer and waiting on his response on what to do. I feel like he will tell me to take it to a dealer locally to have it adjusted.
We love our coach but Forrest River does have some quality control and design issues that they need to address.

Actually that is an accordian gasket surface inside, maybe 3/4" trim to wall. No light, no rain no bugs= its tight. Outside when closed should be within 1/8-1/4" max gap.

Thanks Vince
When shut one side of slide is flush to outside wall while the other end is sticking out almost half an inch
The hydraulics cylinders are not adjusted properly because the 2 locking nuts were never tighten down next to each other. Over time the nuts will either move in or out which I see will cause problems. Either not sealing or like another poster noticed which was a bent hydraulic cylinder rod

You bet add leak to the list! Lippert has some good SE who hopefull can guide you to set the pison stroke. Going out is most important cause the bend damage potential. Coming in hitting too early can cause slide bracket or outer flange damage. I would not trust just any shop.
