Forest river microlite slide gap

I believe this is good but I want to check The slide gaps a good bit on the bottom but it seems to be tight against the gasket. Does this look normal?

The general rule is the slide gasket needs to be compressed at least 50% they are not always even top to bottom. Mine is also out somewhat at the bottom but when the slide is out its straight and tight against the rig.

The bottom screw on the slide was stripped. Looks like someone had closed the slide with a stick or something in between the slide and the wall. I removed the screw and pushed everything back together (.5-.75 inches) then installed a screw above and below the one that was striped and pulled out. Now it closes much tighter. Thanks for the help
