Bedroom slide stop

Per manual instruction to hold slide button in or out until motor comes to a complete stop. I'm having problem with bedroom slide outward. I can see bed frames are bending before it comes to a complete stop. Anyway to adjust hard stop so it won't ride so hard on frames like that? Yes dealer had it for two weeks for warranty works and you can guest what happen.
Thanks

There is no adjustment. The slide motors detect the resistance on the button hold for retiming.
I had the same problem with my slides and it got worse with time. The fix is to remove the decorative side trim. You will have to pull it off. The small Brad nails will pull through the back of the trim , careful not to break the boards. You will now see the plywood backer and the screws to tighten the plywood to the end of the slide. The screws become loose with time. I also found the screws on my units were not evenly spaced and stopped nearly a foot from the bottom of the slide. I removed 1 screw to determine length and bought more of the same in stainless. All screws tightened and added screws at bottom and filled in gaps to make attachment every 6 inches. You will need to drill pilot holes since the screws grab an aluminum frame in the end of the slide. Then replace decorative molding with Brad nailer or trim nails and fill holes with matching furniture marker. Sorry I didn't take pictures. The slides are staying tight but may need re tightening in a few years. Good luck!

I did the same with my 2015R. You can buy the self drilling screws that work great. Don't be afraid to use a lot of them. My trim does not move at all now.

Thanks Rich.M. Now that I know what it is. Stainless steel screws are not so expensive. 6 in. apart sound good. Thanks again.

Do you have the Schwintek slide that is mounted to the slide or the slide that is raised off the slide?

That question wasn't meant to be posted. After I read your post again it is irrelevant if your bed frame is bending.

Is the slide catching your bed frame? A picture might help with this.

Dramatically video would tell better. I will try to post picture tomorrow. As I hold onto slide out button 3 to 5 seconds at the end of slide out. I can see the motor is pushing hard on bed frames and bending about 1 to 2 degree toward me as I'm looking at them. I intend to do as Rich.M and lwalkplumb suggestions about re-enforce plywood behind decorative frame. Joshua, I'm opened to all ideas and thanks so much for asking.

Hi Joshua, I took a few pictures but you can't tell by look at them. I've noticed that left side plywood is loose. I will try to remove decorative layer so I can add a few more screws to fasten plywood to base. What are holding decorative layer to plywood? Is it glue or nails?

Mine was held on with short Brad nails from a nail gun. Glue takes too long at the factory.
