Slack in cables on slides

We are out on our first trip in the motor home. Everything is going well love our Georgetown 328ts. But I was sitting outside watching tv and noticed that the top cables on the bedroom slide has slack in them unlike the others. Is there a way to tighten these back up.

I don't think your slide is all the way out.

Your windows should be fully exposed. You slide at least at the top needs to come out more. On the inside of rv is slide up against wall at the top or do you have a gap?

Check for an obstruction on your slide roof, like a smoke alarm falling on to it

Yes, you can tighten them.

You'll want to learn more about the accu-slide system before making any radical changes, however if you pull down the facia board inside the camper on the top of the slide you will find all eight cables for the slide.

You will be able to find the too loose ones fairly easy. Don't over tighten them; just take the slack out.

Your cables should be taunt at all times, in , out, or in between never any slack, lousy set up, I have one cable slide on our Charleston , but I would agree slide appears Not to be fully extended . Even still cables should be taunt .
Can't believe FR is still using them.
Good luck
