I am sorry you are having problems with your slide. I had a major failure with my bedroom slide while still under warranty. I know the pain.
I have a Norco Accu-Slide Slide-Out System.

I do not know what type of slide you have but please do a search on YouTube.

Example of a Youtube Accu-Slide search.
Youtube: accu slide cable adjustment

I learned a lot about my FR3 slides from this forum and Youtube.

I hope you find some help.

My thread from Sept about my slide motor:

If your slides are hydraulic I suppose the cylinder could be extending to far at the bottom which may tilt the slide top inward. The adjustment for the cylinder is via the nuts on the end of the actuator. I believe the GT 378 has only 1 actuator for the bedroom and it might be accessed from under the bed. Here is the procedure that may/may not help.

From your pictures seems all seems well. If the slide top is lagging (top never does get to wall) from the start of putting the slide out then I don't think there is an actuator adjustment issue.

Can we assume that this issue recently developed and the slide sealed completely at one time?

Is it possible something has gotten behind the molding on one of the sides or top? There will be a slight gap (same as front 2 slides) from the wall. What is the gap for the bedroom slide? Sometimes there is a strip of black tape around the slides on the outside but it is not very accurate as whether the slide is all the way out or not.
