I have an accuslide also in my bedroom, the slack in the wire is nothing to worry about, if you read the directions it calls for a 1/4" depression when you push down on it. Mine has had slack in one cable for 4 years now, no problem at all. Check the pulleys and make sure they don't move and if not don't worry about that cable. I'll attach the accuslide manual. This will show you how to adjust it if it bothering you.

X2. My cables are always slack after extending my slides.

Cables

We have 328 Georgetown 2014, bought 3 years ago. Our cables look like yours on bedroom and kitchen slide. Really do not know about living slide as I have never paid attention to it. Have never had a problem so always assumed it is correct. We have over 18,000 miles so its used and driven quite a bit. We have been pleased with our mh and love the floorplan. Good luck. Husband said he is not worrying about the cables since it works!..lol..

325BH, Thanks for the tips on removing the trim. Next time I am over at the motorhome I am going to make sure I find out how mine comes off so I make sure I keep the right tools with me in case I need to take it off.

Witch Doctor, Thanks I put your AccuSlide Manual in my library. Based on this info on page 33 of the manual, I think my slides are within spec.

"The Accu-Slide is a give and take system between the cables, if the inside and outside opposing cables are too tight you will cause the motor to be over worked leading to trouble later on.

When the room is seated full out, the OUTSIDE cables should be slack enough to move the cable approximately up or down (1 total movement) by hand..."

Attached is the Accu Slide Manual which instructs on how tight to adjust slide-out cables. I hope it's attached, anyway. This system is not really clear.
