Slide problem again

So I have a 2005 8283SS with a 12 foot slideout. I found out it has a RBW slide mechanics.

Cold weather proving it is worthless trying to use it. I can run it out without any problems. BUT! when bringing it back in, #1 clutch grinds getting it back up over the flush lip and #2, about half the way back in it begins grinding again and stops moving.

The question I have, Is the clutch adjustable on these motors? There is what looks like a adjustment screw/bolt on the bottom side of the motor gearbox.
