Adjusting Slide-Outs to Close Tighter?

When closed up, A few of my slides seem to be tight on one side (I can't put my finger tip in) and a decent gap on the other (where I can put a whole knuckle in-between). Same goes for the top and bottom on some.

Is there a way to adjust these? Aside from taking it to a dealer, I'd like to do this myself. I hope its it just a few adjustments to bolts, etc...

I've search this forum and youtube, with no luck!

Thank you!

Here's a PDF ... start at page 16. Slide adjustment is tedious, but can be done by an owner. Do not tighten the 3 nuts up together on the slide bracket. Thw space there is for a reason ... cylinders have more travel than the slides physically can move.
