Slide-Out Alignment?


I have a Fifth Wheel Wildcat 2011 and having issues with the Lippert hydraulic system. The Hydraulic system was changed but now, when closing the Slide outs (2) Kitchen and Bedroom, when fully closed the room goes inside to much, which might damage the siding. How can I adjust the slide-outs individually?

Thanks for your assistance

Explain "hyd system changed out" just for clarification. If a dealer did this, his tech obviously adjusted the slides incorrectly and I'd make them make it right.
Or .......... You can go online to the Lippert "Lip sheets" and get adjustment procedures. Basically each cylinder has a threaded end with large jamb nuts ... you would back the outer jamb nut off a bit to reduce the distance the slide seals to the exterior side. DO NOT TIGHTEN BOTH JAM NUTS TOGETHER. There is more stroke to a cylinder than there is physically room to move the slide ... you'll break something really expensive ... the space between jamb nuts is for that reason and to be able to adjust. The bedroom cylinder is under the bed frame and is harder to get to.
