Why is my above the floor sofa/kitchen slideout one of a kind....

2005 rockwood 2701ss... 1 above the floor slide with jack knife sofa, cabinets, sink, pantry, stove...

I have read numerous forums and manufacturers looking for my slide system and info on how to adjust and troubleshoot but haven't found any like mine...rbw, happijacks, lippert, power gear... it's a dual rail rack and pinion with 1 motor attached at the mounting bracket. It has 2 rollers; 1 under the stove and 1 in the middle.

I can't find any name tag on the motor assembly... the rail does not have a bracket at the end with jamb nuts or a way to adjust.. it mounts to the wood floor that is wrapped up.... the end wall does not sit on the floor but next to it.... and when I took off the lower flange I noticed very long screws were used to attach the wall to the floor horizontally. The issue I'm having is the floor and walls are separating. I removed the screws along the wall and tried using bottle jacks and pieces of wood to bring the wall frame even with the floor frame and add additional screws for more support but they wouldn't budge and I didn't want to break anything. This has lowered my vertical adjustment and the slide makes contact up top and cantilevers the bottom in hard if I want the bottom to seal in the extended position. I dont do that cause I dont want to break my sidewall.... the mounting bracket under the sofa and cabinets are not welded to the frame and I dont think you can adjust them... theres no compartment underneath or access panel.. the bottom is wrapped up in black and that's all you see. How can I get the slide end wall flush with the floor again and how can I center the rack with the gear??

You can see the wall and floor separating... the seal pics is with the bottom cantilevered in a bit cause it was raining and the bottom still doesnt touch. I think if I can realign wall and floor it will seat properly with no adjustments needed for the tilt and vertical but still no idea how to center the gear with the teethClick image for larger version

It does appear that you have a one of a kind. I've seen several above floor systems and I've never seen one exactly like that.

Can you post a picture of the motor section.

Best angles I can get... not much room and its bolted to the mounting bracket right under the gear. The face plate of the bracket and sides cover it. I also dont have a bottom flap between the rails on both sides. I stick old clothes to fill the void cause my ac just loves to rush out and bugs lolClick image for larger version

Heres the rollers... they work well and keep the slide from rubbing the floor when fully retracted Click image for larger version

It kind of looks like what I had in my 2009/10 KZ sportsman 242. May want to try a KZ forum and see if you can find any slide info.
