2015 Apex 259bhss slide out off

When I pull the dinette in you can see it start to move in then pull to the left. When extended the rack and pinion arms are 3/8" off. Rear side is the longer of the two and the room is adjusted all the way in on the un powered rail. When you push the slide out you can see it move to the right then seat. Any idea on the best way to correct this? Support the slide and see if rails have jumped or adjust the can to shorten the push out of the front side of the slide. Will probably pull the slide out as the floor is rotting on each end of the dinette as the skids allowed water between it and the outside of the slide and wicked water along the screws into the floor. Rotting about 8" on each end. Video on YouTube https://youtu.be/cPergFdoYPoClick image for larger version

It may be that a great pack has jumped out of sync. I would count the teeth to see if they are the same could it be that your rotten floor has allot the slide box to be twisted out of square might be something to measure and verify.

Thanks for the idea, just going to bite the bullet and work to pull the belly cover off and check the whole rack and pinion system. Look also for other things that may need tidied up. Have heard stories of crazy things found and done under there.

Guess I should have said you have to pull the corpolast to get to where you can see the gear pack. Good luck I pulled mine and ended up changing all the furnace vent piping and securing wires.

From what I remember the actual teeth on the slave rail has fewer teeth then the drive side rail. I noticed the discrepancy when I was trying to find the best way to measure the rail lengths. Think that is just how it was designed and not part of my actual problem. Now that it's cold outside, seems like the perfect time to start....
