Rear slide is crooked

We have a 2015 sunseeker 2860. The rear bedroom slide is crooked when out. The bottom of the slide comes out over an inch more than the top. When the slide is in all the way the bottom is also over an inch wider. The slide does seal when in and when extended. Was the slide made uneven. I took it to the dealer and they said they couldn't do anything because although its crooked when extended the inside of the slide is flush with the wall. This is also causing bottom the slide to be scratched. I need help with this as my warranty is over in one month. Hope this explains the issue. I will attach photos.

Not a Sunseeker owner but many model slides are not an exact square box, I have seen many slides that are the same as yours is and that is normal. The sides of many RV's angle in slightly so the slide box is built in the same manner.

I would contact Forest River warranty dept. right away..It sounds like what the dealer is telling you is either BS or they just don't know what they're doing. Either way, FR warranty should help you. Do it right away before your warranty runs out.
Good luck

I would make a call why it is still covered by warranty and get the facts.

My 2860 is the same way and my travel trailers before came out a little more at the bottom than the top. I think it is made that way, but please report back your findings if you find out otherwise.

Looking at the slide out topper, looks like one end is tight, while the other is drooping. If this is the slideout from front and rear, something is obviously wrong.

Despite what some have responded, this is definitely not right. A slide should seal near square to the exterior wall if it adjusted right. Since one side seems to lag the other besides being tilted in at the top, I'd guess the cylinder or rails that allow the slide to extend and retract is not perpendicular to your outer wall. If you do have a cylinder that extends the slide ... it may just need repositioned to pependicular. This may solve the tilt as well.

My 2860 is the same, no problems with it though other than aesthetics. On the other hand, my outdoor kitchen door is bowed, the colder the temperature gets, the more it bows. I had it replaced, the new one is the same. Makes it tough to turn both of the end locks.

My neighbor and I have newer Mirada motorhomes and the rear bedroom slide does the same thing on both units. Perhaps not quite as bad as your rear view. If you get an answer let everyone know.
