First and foremost I would like to thank cfsoistman for posting the link for the PDF to the Lippert slide out room. Also, Radio for his info on the BFH. (big f&^%*ng hammer)
The link is for the Lippert hydraulic slide, on the Coachman the slide is electric but FR used a similar system for the slide room.
Problem: Slide room crushing bulb seal and squeegee seal on rear of slide room opening. Slide was tearing the slide seals.
Front squeegee was barely in contact with slide room.
Soulution: Moved slide room forward to center slide room.
I did not take the before pics because I was not sure if I could make the adjustment myself or I would end up getting crushed by the slide room.
I did take after pics (survived), although not "square to the TT" the slide does not have the same issues it did.
Here are some pics of the after for horizontal and vertical adjustment of your Lippert slide room.
For any of the experts out here... You can clearly see where the slide was set on the vertical from the factory (paint line and rust mark).
This unit is new to me so I do not know the history of adjustments on it. It would appear that the slide was set much lower on both sides (rear pictured but front is the same way.") on the vertical. Not sure why it was adjusted an inch higher when I bought it but...
I tried on the vertical to square the box up but did not want to go too far so I left it.
I did however do a good job on horizontal adjustment and I adjusted it to where it is not ripping the seals but again, I did not want to break it so I probably did not move it forward enough?
The PDF says to push or pry the slide room in the direction you would like it go. I am guessing the slide box is close to 1000#'s, it laughed at me when I tried to push it after loosening the proper bolts. I took the tips from "Radios' post Bummed out: Slide room out of alignment...on the BFH and hit the arms instead to move in the opposite direction of the intended new slide room position. ( the slide follows the arms)
The slide is not quite centered but it is not crushing the seals anymore and the front squeegee is now doing it's job.
I have pointed to the proper bolts to loosen if your slide out room is like mine. The single long vertical bolt is the vertical adjustment. I do have a pic of the floor jack in place to prevent the slide room from dropping or from me from being crushed if it went really bad.
I moved the arms about 1/2" side to side and raised the right side and lowered the left side about 1/4".
Saved myself some serious money in the service dept. You can adjust your slide yourself if you have the tools (mini sledge hammer and a 3/4" socket and wrench) and are about a 6 on the 10 scale of handiness....
On my PDI, I had them order me new seals so that will be my next post in this section.
