Slide not flush

Hi all,
Just noticed that my slide doesnít sit flush against the trailer at the bottom on both sides. The top of the slide is fine. Because of this the inside tends to go down towards the floor almost touching it. The rails on top and bottom along the slide are clean and no signs of being striped or heavy wear. I have done the slide in and out 3 times according to some video online. Still didnít fix. Any ideas on how to realign the bottom to the top? Click image for larger version

This is not unusual the key is does the slide seal out the weather when extended or retracted. You should have at least 50% compression of the seals for a good seal. If it seals adjusting to fit the wall tight when closed may have an adverse effect on the seal when in the open position.

You have a lippert, schwintek in wall slide system. Not uncommon for the bottom to be out a little more that the top. There are plenty of videos on the LCI website for the schwintek slide out
