My understanding of those slides is that they will not allow themselves to get misaligned. I vaguely think the behavior may be somewhat normal for them, if there's a problem. I think the information I read may have been on Lippert's site. Try there and make sure one side isn't getting ahead of the other, or that nothing's hindering 1 side.

Schwintek In Wall Slide-Out
The tracks on these slides can get misaligned. I had issues on my crusader where this happened. The tracks had to be reenforced to keep them on line. The problem is when it does happen, it is a bear to move that slide manually.

In other news, it seems that making/packing a "slide lock" or two would be prudent in case we ever have to fully disengage the slide:

Can anyone tell me how wide it is across the back with both slides extended? And how long it is from the back of the RV to the front of the back slides. We need to put our pool up and we won't get our coach for another month. We want to make sure we leave enough room to open everything up. Thanks!!

I get roughly 14 1/2 ft wide with the slides out in the back. From the front of the back slides to the bumper I get 9 ft 10 inches, and add another roughly 1 ft 10 inches with the bike rack down if you have it.

Thank you for the measurements! I know my husband will be so excited to drag out that pool.

What gray tank does the washing machine drain into? How many gallons is that tank and which one does the shower drain into and how many gallons is it?

SabreSam would be the best source for a real answer- but, given that the washer/dryer is the to the front, I'd guess that it goes to the first gray tank which is also shared by the shower and sink (in the full bath). It's a 42-gallon tank.
