Ours got crooked like that,except the otherway(close on bottom,out 1.5" more at the top) Our rear vertical seal doesnt touch the side of the slide anymore either(it did originally).It was one of the items on my extensive list I submitted to the dealer about a month ago. Dealer and FR said "it was not repairable at the dealer level" so its going back to the factory. Ours is a FWTH, but an out of whack slide is just that,no matter what brand.

Edit) wrong pic,this is a "before", not after it got out of tilt.

Your wolf pack is only the second Wolf pack I have seen besides mine. How long is yours? Mine is called a 32' but is really 36' long. I have problems with the dinenet dose not go in all the way on the rear, I have tried to adjust it but no a vale.

Same problem with my Forester 2701DS

Besides my previous post on this topic, here is my own topic under Forester now with photos. Who's the Slide out manufacturer? - Page 2 - Forest River Forums

One thing I just discovered is the rear top and side fit snug when retracted and can't get fingers in under the lip. The front top and side aren't snug and I can easily get my fingers in under the lip.

We use two slides at Sunseeker/Forester one is schwintek which will be square at all times. The other is a Lippert above floor slide. By design this slide sticks out at the bottom an inch or two more than the top depending on whether it is in or out. As long as you are still getting a seal when you are brining it in then you're fine.

that's funny, mike told me the slide being out of square is normal. you guys should get on the same page about what story you are going to tell people...

We have a 2007 2860DS Sunseeker. Ours is also tilted. However, on the last two trips, the bedroom slideout has been rubbing against the cornice board when opening and closing the slide. Any ideas what it might be?

As we were winterizing our unit this weekend, we noticed that the drivers side slide (Lippert slide) is now rubbing and scratching on the side right by the drivers door. The rubber seal comes out the bottom half when extended, which is the way it should be but the top half doesn't come out anymore. The seal on the right side of the slide is just find. Seems like a bit more room for the seal on the right side and real tight on the left side when look at the slide from the side of the MH. Has anyone had this problem before?
