Levelness of Slideouts

I apologize if this has been discussed in another thread - when I set up my 32' Wildwood, I get it level, then put the slides out. While the main part of the trailer stays level, the slides seem to "droop" away from level by several inches. For example, this past weekend I put the level on the kitchen countertop, and it was perfect. Then I put it on the table in the main slide, and it was way off. I had to lift the level about an inch or so to get it back to level. You can also feel that it is not level in the main slide when it is out. Everything looks good as far as alignment of the seals and the walls, etc. Is this normal, or should the slide outs be level, as long as the trailer is?

I'm no expert but I can only assume that the slides tilt to the rear to allow water from draining back into the camper. I know the slide seals are for this but sometimes they don't work. Mine tilts slightly to the rear also.

i just purchased a 2011 Wildcat fifth wheel and have the same issue, i understand that you may want it to pitch down a bit for water run off but mine is also pitched a down a lot and it is very noticeable looking at it as well as sitting in it. I hope someone can provide some assistance with this issue.

I set up w/ the slide side 1" higher. Then when the slides are extended the trailer is level. Extra weight outside the slide side tires seems to weigh the torsion suspension.
