How to adjust slide

OK, I searched through previous posts to see if I could find a definite answer with no luck. The bottom corner on the front, or left side facing the slide out, has a gap when fully retracted and allows water to enter when traveling in the rain. It's a Lippert "through frame" electric rack type. From what I gather you have to adjust the stop can towards the frame to increase the seal when retracted. The rear corner bottom seal retracted is fine, it's the front bottom corner that I need to draw in about an inch. Anybody know the proper way to do this?

slides do not need to sit tight against the rig they should have at least 50% compression of the gasket. If I remember right I think there is a video at FR on adjusting the slide I will look in my files and see what i have.
