Slide out adjustment

I just noticed that our 2012 Salem 27RKSS slide out is rubbing tight on the top left hand upper corner. Underneath is an adjustment bolt and a slide bracket to allow the bottom to move in and out. Left and right have same set up.
Question is would I adjust the left side inward to bring the left top outward or... Would I need to move the right side in to counter the left corner top being in too far?

Milcop have you checked the files section? There is a lippert slide manual there. You can down load it. It explains all adjustments. If you need to, PM me and I'll send it to you.

Is the unit not still under warranty I would take it to the dealer for adjustment.

It hasn't seen the end of year one yet...
Had it to FR dealer on trip home from NH morot Speedway this week and they said its the siding where it popped from the frame being attached. not much they could do. So I've gone to my glass guy and he gave me a couple of the bug deflector clear rubber bump stops to put on the siding side and create the gap distance.

when we went to leave the campground at the track - our crank jack snapped. Took it off and replaced it at Camping World with a new electric unit.

I'm not sure I'd settle for the siding being popped from the frame. I think I'd be contacting FR

If it is less than a year old you bet your ***** I would be up in somebody's behind and making some kind of big scene and they would fix it.

This is where the slide out is rubbing into the sheet metal at the top left. I tried to put a small flat clear rubber spacer between the siding and the frame for the slide out but it shifted off the spot.

The siding seems to take a sharp indententation where the slide out comes back into the trailer on both top left and top right.

The slide out has enough clearance on the right side and therefore no scaring has occured.

The topper was installed on July 16th 2012 at CW after the original posts concerning this issue were made here early July and after emails were sent to Forest River warranty rep. July 7th so it has had no changing effect on the gap (positive or negative).

Hopefully one mans misery is another mans saving grace. .
