Tilted slide outs wile opening. Design Flaw ?

My two slide outs tilt down wile opening.
Once they are open they become perfectly leveled.
I have no problems with the seals in the open or close position, everything seems to be working good and no leaks.
Is this normal?
My previous camper had it too, but this new one broke what they call “ slide out corner blocks”. I honestly think it is a corner block design flaw.
What say you ?
Anybody with a similar situation ?

Mine do this and it's just not right, is it? It's under warranty so, if it falls off I'm covered.

Yes, when to top of the slide hits the wall of the trailer the bottom will continue out until it is level.

The problem is not the slide tilting, it is the two per slide plastic corner blocks. When the slide tilts they brake. I would say every +/- 30 cycles !

Just got a word from Forest River apparently they discontinued these parts and are going to replace them with metal ones probably aluminum ....

It was one of the first things I noticed before ever buying. The dinette slide on the Sunseeker 2500TS would tip down when extending and coming level seating at the outward position. It only happened on one of the 3 slides. The dealer assured us that it was normal and it never caused us a problem.
