main slide issue

my main slide over the last fewmonths has developed a floor unlevel condition, by about a 1/4 " off the level.
the brackets out side all show no evidence of slipping, all bolts are tight as well.
soooooo, i did place a jack under the outer edge of the main slide and used a big 6x6 to give support across the slide and lifted it up to level. then loosened the bolts and raised the jacking bolt 3/16" to see if it would correct the out of level condition.
i then let the jack down and it seems by reading my level, there was no change on the floor.
all my slide caps inside are fully seated, it just acts like the slide itself is leaning?
anybody got an idea before i pull off my underbelly panels to look around.

That is an issue I have not come acrossed yet, but a friend of mine had bought a new Potomic 5th wheel and the frist time he went camping, he was all set up and ready to open the slide outs one of them slid out and kept on going, he had a real problem. With help from others at the camp site he was able to get it back in. He was still under warrenty, but had a battle with the manufacture over this. If I can come up with some info, I will let you know. Good luck!

I find an application of high-explosives can fix most problems.

I have a 20' slide...and it feels like it slants away from the trailer a bit. I always thought it was supposed to...for drainage. Maybe mine is out of whack too?

yep thats what i am talking about
mine appears to be level and contacting all teh seal areas but the floor slants outward toward the out wall.
i might put on a set of stabilizers for teh slide and see if it helps or takes some of the lean out, could be from just sitting so long lately its telling me its time to hit the road
