2015 Coachmen 404RB slide out

On my 2015 404RB the large slide on the drivers side is not sealing all the way at the bottom. I cant find the adjustment for in and out any help would be much appreciated.
It is an electric slide out I think 2.5 by 2.5 in frame with center drive motor.

By not sealing are you saying you can see space between the slide and side of the rig? or are you saying there is more space at the bottom then at the top? Slides do not have to fit tight against the rig to be adjusted correctly normally you look for at least 50% gasket compression. Keep in mind when you adjust a slide it effects both closed and open positions.

The top seal is at least 50% compressed and the bottom seal is not compressed at all.

Thanks for the link and information. This is very similar to my slide mechanism its a electric rack and pinion in frame but mine does not have the stop can for in and out adjustment. I going to take another look at it but I cant find anywhere there is an adjustment for in and out.

On some if you open the slide you will see a bolt or double bolt where the box is attached to the slide rails these can be loosened and the box moved in or out. What ever you do, do it in small increments.

Thanks again I have seen what you are talking about in pictures online. My coach is in a spot where it cant be leveled, as soon as I get it where I can open it up I will look at that connection I am hoping it has that adjustment as you described.

I checked the slide rails and where the box is attached to the slide rails it only has up and down adjustments no in and out adjustments.
