Slide out not tracking even

I just bought a Salam fifth wheel and noticed today that when I close the slide one side does not close all the way at the top. After opening and closing it I discovered that its not tracking even. Is there a way to correct this myself or do I have to take it to a dealer??

How much space do you have at the top? I was told if the seal will hold a piece of paper closed then it is fine. What kinda of slide mech. do you have electric or hydraulic? Is it a Lipperd. There is a good y tube on them I think you type in LCI shows you how to adjust them. Maybe that will help. If your under warranty have them do it. Not saying they even know how they tried to adjust mine 3 x's. The strange part was that I have decals that run through the slide area they where a 3/4" off when closed. They kept telling me it was fine, I kept asking when they put the decals on did they install them 3/4" off? Now they line up. the left hand side fell and also stretched my topper cover, made them replace that to
