Congratulations on your 328ts. I hope you like yours as much as I like mine! I just recently went to Goshen where they checked out my slide outs and they found too much slack in the cables. They removed an access plate above the bed and above the other slides, where they used a socket on a drill and tightened them up. They said they should be pretty tight. Mine are near piano strings when I pluck them.

Compman69 if you get a chance could you measure the width between the couch and the bedroom slide when fully extended so I can have something to compare mine too

Sure, I have mine getting some minor things fixed from a storm here in Kissimmee. When I get it back I'll be glad to!

Check your tape measure or it is an optical slope, the picture shows a different
Angle.Just my thoughts I have a slide like yours and the window is completly
out.

Everyone is overthinking this. The cables are just a little loose. No big deal to tighten. Just pull the top fascia board off the inside. Once you do that you will see the cables and can snug-up the loose ones.

I just had my Georgetown 328TS out last week and also noticed the exact same kind of slack in my slide cables, so this thread is very helpful. How is the top fascia trim removed? Is it stapled or nailed in place? (mine is in storage now).

I will also add that my fully extended bedroom slide looks exactly as pictured with the edge of the window right up against the side of the motorhome.

If it is like mine (I own a Keystone), the fascia board is screwed in... with the screws covered by the round buttons that snap on/off.

Be careful when removing long fascia boards, as they will bend and break under their own weight. They aren't very heavy, however long ones will break. Use a helper to keep them straight.

My big dining/couch slide out has never been level... so I plan to work on it this winter. Will start from scratch by leveling everything then tighten up the cables. (Have to loosen them first of course).

No but the same size bedroom slide.
Hope I did not mean to offend you sorry if you took it that way.
Don.
