Large Bolt sticking out on Slide

Hi All - Im so full of question! Today I noticed a large bolt sticking out the bottom of the middle of the slide - it doesnt look right. Is this suppose to be there sticking out or was it something that wasnt screwed in properly and I just noticed it now? Ill take a picture of it tomorrow to post it.

I'm betting the slide out adjustment bolt.
probably comes down I the center where your wheel well is.

mtaxter, from your other post I believe you own a 233s as I do. This appears to be a the height adjustment for how the slide pulls onto the outside of camper. Looking under you'll find two bolts on either side of this bolt. It looks as those 2 would be loosened and the big bolt you are talking about would be be adjusted, then the outside bolts re-tightened. This would align the seal when the slide pulls tight. Just what I see though. Something I wouldn't mess with though unless there's a problem, and then I'd contact your dealer first. Anyway, although long, it should be as is. I got the same, just books odd.

I'm pretty sure that's it! This is our first camper and we didn't get a walk thru and after reading the whole manuel didn't say anything. I stumbled on this because I was snooping undr the slide because the slide doesn't open or close smooth lots of creaking.
