Slide Out cable tension adjustment

After reading the manual on how to adjust the slide out cable tension on my 2012 Tracer 230FBS, I can't figure out how to access the adjustment screws. Do you have to remove the slide out interior trim? and if so, how are they attached? I wouldn't want to damage the trim. The ones on my camper have approx. 2 inches of movement, both top and bottoms, manual states 1 inch.

HELLO Camper Jim
I have a 2013 tracer 2670bhs. Have the same issue with my cables. What ever did you do to your slide?

Not sure how your slides are, but my wardrobe slide has everything visible and easy to get to when slide is in.....

I did resolve my issue by carfully removing the top valences (they are only tacked on with brads/staples), after which the adjustments at the cables are easily reached. Follow the instructions on the slideout manual for proper adjustment.
Reinstall the valences using brads with an pneumatic gun is easiest.
