Crooked slide?

When closing the right side (dining room and theatre seat) slide on my 327RES today, I noticed that it seems to close "crooked". The front edge of the slide touches and slightly compressed the vertical weather seal. The rear edge does the same at the top, but the bottom completely smashes it to the point that the lip on the edge of the slide appears to be bending (flexing) outward. The other 2 slides seem to close the same as the front edge of the slide in question.

I can find nothing about this, or anything about adjustments in the owner manual. Is this closed position correct? If not, I guess it means another trip to the dealer.

It doesn't sound correct to me. I would think it's certainly a dealer item.

My lacrosse was like that when i first got it. I had to have the trim replaced because it smashed it and left a nasty mark from closing so tight.. There is a adjustment to take care of that. Sound like the slide is retracting in too far and the stop on the ram needs to be adjusted.

Spoke to the dealer today. They adjusted the slide to take care of the closing issue. They said the adjustment bolt appeared to have been loose and backed off causing the slide to "walk" when opening and closing. Apparently "walking" is the term used for the slide not moving smoothly and evenly in/out. They also fixed the tape edges on the bottom of the slide which were rubbing during movement and tearing up the tape. As soon as my replacement fireplace shows up, I will go up to the dealer and check things out.

Picked up my trailer on Saturday. Got it home, rinsed off and put away in the barn just in time for another snow storm and sub zero temperatures to hit. Slide seems to work much better now. The dealer actually adjusted the slide, replaced a couple pieces of the trim work that were bent from the slide closing too far and they replaced the tape on the bottom of the slide that was damaged by the slide not moving properly. I will keep an eye on the tape to make sure nothing else is snagging it under there.
