Slide adjustments??

The bottom of our slideout sticks out about 1.5 inches and the top is tight and flush with the wall. Doesn't seem to be causing any problems inside and nothing inside is blocking it from coming in further. It just doesn't seem to be as aerodynamic as it should be?? Anyone know of an adjustment to bring it in a little more? - Thanks

The rubber seal looks reasonable on the bottom but it looks like that plastic below needs to be checked and re-secure.

Unfortunately no I do not know of any adjustments that I would recommend doing at home.
I have an appointment for my Crusader next week for a few odds n ends warranty work, one of them being adjusting the slides. After a year of use they just need to be tweaked a little. Similar to yours.

As for that plastic piece, had the same issue with it sticking out and making the slide and overall appeal look like something was wrong. I just took a few of the screws out around that area and carefully cut a notch in the plastic until it laid flat. Mine was hitting the trim piece that came down on the outside of the slide. Looks much better now.

Good luck...

Mine looks the same. I think it's just the fender skirt not a slide adjustment. My slide works well otherwise. I wouldn't mess with the slide itself to make the skirt line up.

Coincidence would have it I noticed the exact same thing on my 2016 295 rsk today. Looks like I need to carefully cut a notch to get it to lay flat so that both trim pieces are flush with each other
