2007 Forest River Rockwood Slide out adjustment?

Hey everyone, I have a 2007 Forest River Rockwood Ultra Lite. Im having an issue with the super slide out. It seems as its not totally square (crooked). The left top (or the rear) is over more to the left then the bottom is, also it is out aprox. 1/2" out more on the back end (the rear of the camper) then the front of the camper. Its causing the top rear to bind.

Is there any way of adjusting it? Ive tried everything and tried to look up things and cant find what im looking for maybe.

Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. there adjusting bolts under the slide box by the operating gear for both vertical and horizontal adjustment keep in mind adjustments should be small because any adjustment in one area effect all other areas. I would make no more then an 1/8 to 1/4" adjustment without testing the the slide between each adjustment. You will need jacks and supports under the slide box when you do this. good luck

Can you post a few pictures of the gears and racks under the slide?

Before you do anything take a measurement on each gear rack from the end of the gear rack (not from the slide room wall or flange) to the the end of the pinion gear pack. It should be the same. If it's different then one of the pinions has jumped a tooth or more on the rack. If it's the same then Seadog is correct about how to adjust it.
If yours is like ours the bolts in the flange are for side to side and up and down adjustments and the one through the channel is for in and out adjustments.

I have tried the up and down adjustment and it does not do what I need it to do. It looks like the left side (back end) of the slide is moving before the other side moves or right side (front end) of the slide. I tried to adjust the rod that sits inside the slideout arms and it did nothing. Like I wasnt able to adjust it no matter if it felt like I was.

If one side moves before the other side moves, check the shear bolts in the cross shaft. You could have one sheared or partially sheared.

I have the same slide out, same problem, it seemed the slide out was not square with the wall opening mostly in the rear, I tried adjusting as described to get equal gaps on each side, but I sill had a sort of uneven gap showing on the rear, the slide out floor slides on a PVC molding then drops into a slot when fully open, I suspect the floor may have a sagged in the rear, the fix-with the slide slide fully extended, I raised the low side (rear) with a bottleneck jack supported by a 2 x 4 under the slide out floor, Inside-removed the screws on the PVC molding and added about 1/2" shim (ripped a 2x4) tapering down towards center of slide molding (very important PVC molding is supported in all area across floor), that did square up the gaps. The unequal gap was damaging the rubber weather guards. I ordered new rubber weather guards from Forest River.
