Living/Dining Slide not sitting flush

Forgive me, I'm definitely green when it comes to Slide Out Traveler Trailers.
I have a 2015 Heritage Glen 302FK. My question/concern is: When I extend the Large Living/dining slide, it does not seem to seal and flush with the interior wall. Is this normal or does it need to be adjusted? On a side note: along the top on either side of the slide it is closer to the wall than the bottom. I do plan on calling the dealer service department today and ask the same questions.

Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.....

Thanks

Is this something I can do or does the dealer/service department need to do this?

I have the opposite problem. Both LR slides are kicked out about 1 1/2 inches on the bottom. Dealer says its ok, but looks funny.

Most slide out adjustments dont require a sawsall.
And there would have to be a awful lot of explaining

That is why This Adjustment was performed at the F/R Factory! Our simple Little Adjustment turned into a all day Plus overtime for 5 guys in 100+ Deg F Heat! Youroo!!

The top of the slide is flush with the side of the trailer. The bottom sticks out away from the trailer.
