Slide level adjustment?

When I've gor the trl set up dead level side to side and front to rear, when I put a level on the table that's in the slide, the table slants toward the outside wall. Looking at the adjusters under the slide they're all the way down. Looks like I can adj the slide up about 2". Has anyone had to adj their slides? How tough is it, etc?

lindy, I have same problem with mine. I finally found out after taking pictures and emailing them to the Lipert rep. that my slider rails are RBW brand. RBW tells me no manual for them and take it to a dealer. I tried several adjustments got it level when slide was out but didn't line up when in position. So back to original adjustments. I have had no luck finding someone who knows anything about the RBW slider arms. I am taking it out to a dealer today. Ya dealers are as bad $$$ as frigin Doctors and Lawyers.

i adjusted mine easily but like GREGAD said, i got it level but when it slid in, it was NOT lined up properly. it looked like they dropped one end a bit to "fit" the hole..so, i set it back the way it was...

The slides are tilted down so the water drains away from the seals on the camper. if you have it level you risk the water pooling and leaking into the camper. If you have slide toppers then its a different story. On the line at the factory they don't know which campers are getting slide toppers, so there all set with tilt!

My problem is mine slopes way down. When it is open, the top is tight against the trailer side but the bottom is out at least 2 inches and daylight, bugs ect. can get in. Repair guy not sure about it either. I had 4 different dealers tell me 4 different things. Right now it is at a dealer whom just called and said, ????? They don't know.

I have a RBW slider, not a Lipert. Al-Ko now owns RBW and they tell me there are no manuals to adjust it. Ya Right!

ANYBODY Knows about RBW slide adjustments, I am desperate.

Woooo Hooooo! Got my slider adjusted. Now it drops level with the floor like it should and seals all the way around. There is a long threaded rod inside the arms that adjusts the whole assembly outwards. Found out there was no secure pins in them to keep them from vibrating back in. But now there is and room is level. The roof line tilts to allow water run off.
