Slide rubbing kitchen cabinet

Brand new 2015 Sandpiper 371rebh and the dining room slide out touches the kitchen counter when its in. it has rubbed a small place on the countertop as well as the wood trim on the slide out. Can the hydraulics be adjusted?

if you look over the top of the back part of the dinette chair you can see the rub in the wood. this is a picture off of a sales site, not mine

Are you referring to the mark by the left booth seat?

I don't have any experience with slide-outs but I would think something could be adjusted so that it doesn't rub against the cabinet. Have you contacted your service department at the dealership? With it being brand new it should be under warranty.

Hopefully others will chime in and answer your question.

Good luck.

Lippert has slide adjustments side-to-side and up\down. Try the Lippert Industries website for detailed instructions.

This definitely should not be happening. You wouldn't want to void the warranty by attempting to fix it yourself. Being a new trailer, the Dealer should be quite willing to remedy the problem under warranty.

I know this is an old thread, but I was curious if you ever got that resolved. I picked up a new 371 rebs in Oct and it has the same issues. Forest River stated the trim was too thick and sent me a new trim piece. Problem is the piece they sent me is just as thick, the just narrowed the trim piece.

I may just try to put the trim they sent on a lathe and shave the thickness down. I think the problem is the counter top is to long causing the slide to contact it. But it will take for ever if I have the dealer replace it. Thank you for the info.
