accuslide questions. can someone please help?

2014 Tracer 2670. warranty ran out last week. camper sits two hours away from dealer for the summer. i have a question on the slideout system. everything seems to work fine, seems level, good seal, but when i look at the cables on the outside of the slide i notice the two bottom cables are tight and the two top cables have some slack, not alot, just not as tight as the bottom cables.. is this normal? should the bottom cables when slideout extended be tighter then the two top cables? im having no issues(knock on wood) and im just wondering.. i hate to tow this way down to dealer and have them tell me all is normal especially since no more warranty...thank you

The cable tension needs to be adjusted...it's not a very difficult job. Here's a link to a post I made a couple of years ago about making the adjustment and includes the manual... Adjusting the cables on a Rockwood/Flagstaff WS

I had my cables adjusted 2x in the 10 months I owned my tracer 2670. My dealer told me it was normal to have to frequently adjust them. I would always have one or 2 cables that looked too loose but never too tight.

Never could understand why cables on a superslide
